First-person parkour platformer Ghostrunner release date has been announced. The game will leap into action for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 27th. An updated free demo will also be released for Steam in late September.

What will Ghostrunner bring when it launches?

Ghostrunner is a collaborative development effort between One More Level, Slipgate Ironworks, and legendary studio 3D Realms. It's a cyberpunk action platformer featuring first-person katana combat and plenty of parkour. Armed with a blade and your incredible acrobatic abilities, you must hack into humanity's final city with help from allies The Architect and Zoe. You can check out a new gameplay trailer that shows off some of Ghostrunner's combat and platforming here:

Despite being an indie creation, Ghostrunner's developers and publishers are promising triple-A level visuals thanks to RTX ray tracing support. The game will also sport a synthwave soundtrack by musician Daniel Deluxe. If you're still on the fence about getting Ghostrunner, you can look forward to September 29th, when an updated PC demo of the game will launch. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like this demo will be available on PS4 or Xbox One, so you'll have to be a PC player if you want to avail yourself of it.

Ghostrunner will launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 27th. The devs are also offering the chance to take part in a private closed beta for the game, which only a select few participants will be able to access. If you want to sign up for that, all you need to do is fill in this form. It shouldn't take too long, but judging by some of the questions, it looks like you will need to be enthusiastic about Ghostrunner if you want a chance of success.
