Ghostrunner was perhaps one of last year's most underrated gems. Releasing just before the launch of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, the game didn’t seem to get the attention it quite deserved at the time, but hopefully that’s all set to change today as a free next-gen upgrade of the game is now available.
With the new release, a ton of enhancements have been delivered to introduce the best possible version yet. A ray tracing mode has been added, along with the ability to play the game in 4K at 120 frames per-second on Xbox Series X (Series S specs have yet to be confirmed). 3D spatial audio also aims to immerse you even further in its neon-soaked cyberpunk setting.
If you’ve yet to play Ghostrunner, or maybe dived in when it was first released, an array of free post-launch updates bulk out the game even further. There’s a time-based Kill Run Mode, a roguelite Wave Mode and even an Assist Mode to make the game a tad easier for those who are struggling. If you want to capture the moments you've created with the game's next-gen visuals, there’s also a Photo Mode to delve into.
Additionally, there's some good news for fans of the game, as a sequel has been confirmed to be in development. So, if the idea of Ghostrunner entices you, it may be worth diving in - especially since the game is currently discounted at 60% off (£9.99 / $11.99) on the Xbox Store until next Tuesday. The perfect excuse!
