Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer Tango GameWorks announced Ghostwire: Tokyo will launch for the PlayStation 5 and PC in spring 2022.

View a new trailer of the game below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Ghostwire: Tokyo is a stunning action adventure game designed exclusively for the PlayStation 5 from Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks. Experience Tango’s unique vision of Tokyo—a stunning metropolis rich in tradition and history—as players face off against a supernatural threat.

Story:

A massive paranormal event causes the sudden disappearance of 99% of the population while spirits from Japanese folklore storm Tokyo. Players will harness paranormal abilities to solve the mystery of the disappearances and save the city.

Key Features:

  • Explore a Broken, Beautiful Tokyo  Ghostwire: Tokyo harnesses the power of the PlayStation 5 to re-create Tokyo’s timeless beauty—an unmatched mix of ultra-modern cityscapes, deep dark alleyways, and beautiful ancient temples—but with a supernatural twist that will be a surprise even to those who are familiar with the city. While barren and ominous, the metropolis’ splendor is on full display with iconic landmarks including Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Tower, and more.
  • Next-Gen Fidelity on PlayStation 5 – Tango Gameworks is using the power and speed of PlayStation 5 to forge a beautiful, supernatural version of Tokyo like never before with haptic feedback for every ability and character action with the DualSense Wireless Controller and advanced 3D spatial audio that immerses the player in an ominous city with dangers to uncover around every corner.
  • Wield Paranormal Abilities  Ghostwire: Tokyo features a robust combat system that allows players to employ supernatural powers to unleash devastating, otherworldly attacks and interact with the paranormal in a variety of ways—cleanse, banish, and destroy. Throughout their journey players will grow their newfound powers to suit their playstyle and take the fight to the supernatural.
  • Face the Unknown – Tango is known for their creepy monsters and Japan’s culture—stories of youkai (supernatural beings from Japanese folklore), ghost stories, and urban legends—provides plenty of inspiration. In the studio’s version of Tokyo, evil spirits are wandering the city in search of victims. Players will encounter supernatural entities such as Shiromoku, a spirit of a young bride in a traditional white kimono who was unable to wed her lover and has endless regret, and Amewarashi, a paranormal entity in the form of a child wearing a raincoat that manifests due to its great sadness from being separated from his parents and his mischievous spirit.

Game looks interesting! I bet Arkane helped with the gameplay because it definitely gives me dishonored vibes.
