The title was shown running on PlayStation 5 during a reveal event on Thursday.
The action adventure game was first revealed at E3 2019 and is said to be “spooky” but not a survival horror like Tango’s previous games The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2.
In the title’s first trailer a number of Tokyo citizens are seen disappearing into thin air. Players have to investigate these disappearances and figure out the source of the evil that’s causing them.
According to Bethesda, the game will involve facing the occult, unravelling conspiracy theories and experiencing urban legends.
“We’re particularly excited by the possibility of players experiencing our modern, yet Visitor-filled city with 3D sound,” Kenji Kimura, game director on Ghostwire: Tokyo, told PS Blog.
“This version of Tokyo is not a version you’ve ever seen or heard before. In Ghostwire: Tokyo, you’ll hear and encounter sounds that you normally would not hear in the city in real life. Our hope is that with the 3D sound, you will feel compelled to seek out and identify what is causing those sounds you hear.”
Kimura also said the game will make use of the DualSense controller’s new features when it comes to battling the spirits which roam the streets of Tokyo.
“The player character’s special abilities have a deep relation to these hand gestures. Which are perfect for the controller haptics and adaptive triggers – one of the PS5’s new features that we’re taking advantage of,” he said.
“We can’t wait for you to get your hands on the new controllers and play in this thrilling, unpredictable Tokyo where you’ll never know what’s going to happen next.”
