GhostWire: Tokyo is Tango Gameworks’ latest game since The Evil Within 2. Neither its announcement trailer from E3 2019 nor its newest trailer from fake E3 2020 really told us much other than that it would be supernatural in nature.
Here’s everything we know about GhostWire: Tokyo
GhostWire: Tokyo will launch sometime in 2021 according to the gameplay reveal debuted during the PlayStation 5 showcase event in June 2020. According to Sony’s CES showcase in early 2021, GhostWire will come to PlayStation 5 in October 2021.
The gameplay reveal for GhostWire: Tokyo definitely displays some of the action game elements that Tango say they’re going for:
Tango has said that Ghostwire won’t be like the survival horrors that they’re known for.
“Though there is an eerie element to the world, this is the studio’s first foray into the action-adventure sphere,” Bethesda said in 2020.
“Assisting them in creating a more action-oriented game is Shinichiro Hara, who worked on the push-forward combat and Glory Kill system in DOOM (2016), and is now the Combat Director on GhostWire: Tokyo,” Bethesda said. “Hara and the combat team at Tango have created an intricate, combo-based system that utilizes movements inspired by traditional Kuji-Kiri hand gestures.”
You can perform takedowns on monsters from afar in GhostWire. When enemies are vulnerable, their “core” is exposed, which you can pull out with your spiritual wires to kill them. Certain enemies are of course vulnerable to certain kinds of attacks.
“We want the player to feel like a badass, spell-casting, high-tech ninja exorcist defeating countless evil spirits”, says Hara in Bethesda’s recent breakdown.
“In order to achieve this, we chose intricate, deliberate hand gestures as the primary weapons, instead of simple guns. Unlike guns, our gestures allow us to put a lot more movement and personality into the player’s actions as the player’s hands are organic extensions of the character.”
In the new trailer, you can spot the protagonist wielding fire, water, and electrical magic attacks along with a bow.
