Ghostwire: Tokyo is coming to Xbox Game Pass next month alongside new content
New enemies, new areas and a new roguelike mode will all be included in the update
Ghostwire: Tokyo is coming to Xbox Series consoles and Game Pass, alongside a new update.
The Spider’s Thread update, which will also release on PS5 and PC, comes to all platforms, including for the first time Xbox, on April 12.
The Spider’s Thread update introduces multiple additions to the main game of Ghostwire Tokyo, such as more areas to explore such as a haunted middle school, quality-of-life improvements, and more, according to Bethesda.
The main game’s story will also feature extended cutscenes, 1granting players a deeper look into the plot as they play through Akito & KK’s adventure to stop the menacing Hannya from destroying Tokyo”.
The update, which will also come free to PS5 and PC, includes “many additions to the main story campaign for Ghostwire: Tokyo,” such as a new roguelike game mode during which players must navigate a 30-stage gauntlet assembled from over 130 levels.
As players progress, their abilities will become stronger. However, dying during a run will reset players to the beginning.
New enemy types will also be added, like “the invisible Silent Gaze or elusive Retribution”. To defeat these new enemies, Akito will receive new skills, including “Charge Rush and devastating Counter Attack”.
The Spider’s Thread update also includes an expanded photo mode. “Use in-game Meika to unlock figures at capsule machines scattered throughout Tokyo to unlock game models that you can even use in Photo Mode for supernatural selfies,” says Bethesda.
Ghostwire Tokyo was released on PC and PS5 last year. The game, which was one of two PS5 console exclusives alongside Deathloop, was signed to PlayStation prior to Microsoft‘s acquisition of Bethesda, and thus Tango Gameworks.
Ghostwire Tokyo was developed by Tango Gameworks and directed by Shinji Mikami. VGC’s Ghostwire Tokyo review called it a “memorable, but flawed action-horror game.”
“At times it feels like the game’s incredible art direction, music and visual style deserve a game that’s better mechanically,” the review stated, “but when it all comes together, Ghostwire Tokyo is one of the more memorable recent games in the triple-A space, if you can ignore its gameplay stumbles.”
