505Games and All in! Games have announced that Ghostrunner will release on October 27th. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publishers have released a new trailer that you can find below.
Ghostrunner promises to feature an intense cyberpunk world and dynamic combat. Players will conquer their enemies in the physical world and in cyberspace. Players will also hunt for answers in humanity’s last remaining shelter.
The game takes place in the future, after a global cataclysm where the remains of humanity live in a tower built by The Architect, who died mysteriously years ago. The world ruled by The Keymaster is harsh and players assume the role of a cyber-warrior. Thus, they will be capable of fighting both in the physical world and in cyberspace.
Players will also have to use this bond with technology to ascend the tower. As they climb higher, they will reveal secrets, and the clock will start ticking on a race to uncover the mystery behind the structure that houses humanity’s last hope.
Lastly, the game will feature real-time ray tracing effects for shadows and reflections. Back in May 2020, we tried a demo in which those ray tracing effects were present. However, those ray tracing effects brought a major performance hit to the game. Thus, it will be interesting to see whether the final version will run smoother and whether there will be support for DLSS.
