Annoyingly, I still can’t wallrun in genuine life– and it sure ain’t for lack of trying. Fortunately, Ghostrunner is swinging in with some real good vertical sprinting. Getting Here on October 27th, One More Level’s dystopian dash n’ slasher is cutting heads and moving down elegant cyberpunk buildings without so much as scuffing its knees.
Diving in last year, Ghostrunner asks– and right away responses– one extremely basic concern: what if Mirror’s Edge had swords, though?
Presenting you with an enormous, filthy, neon-tinted urban spread, Ghostrunner is a parkour play ground. These wallrides and butt-slides aren’t just for show, mind– the authorities of this dystopia don’t want you moving and wallrunning and grappling your way through this dystopian backlot, sending out all sorts of jerks after you. Ghostrunner has you leaping and dodging your method through firefights like some kinda sword-wielding Titanfall 2 speedrunner.
The RPS vidbuds braved the cyberpunk dystopia of the Koelnmesse to play Ghostrunner at last year’s Gamescom, finding “a quick wall-bounder who is fighting their method through mankind’s last refuge– a city of pipes and towers and amazed walls. They can grapple onto remote wires, slide on the old kneecaps, and slash energy bullets to send them flying back at enemies.”
That praise didn’t stop the game’s presenter calling Matthew “average”, mind– and while their video shows off some charming slow-mo decapitations and death-defying balancings, there are a lot of stunts that don’t manage to, well, defy death. Watching among the designers run through it is a dream, however– a flurry of evaded bullets and flying heads played out in slow-motion.
If it plays along with it looks, Ghostrunner will be one to keep an eye out for when it leaps onto Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on October 27th for ₤ 25/EUR30/$30, with a complimentary demo available to download on September 29th.
