It is currently unknown if the Nintendo Switch version of the game will include the pre-order bonuses that come with its console counterparts. Pre-ordering the game on consoles grants players access to two digital katanas — one specifically designed for each launch platform.
The katanas will be unavailable to purchase once the game launches. PlayStation Plus subscribers and PC users will also receive a 20 per cent discount, while all Xbox One users will receive 10 per cent of their purchase.
Ghostrunner’s narrative revolves around players having to scale the Dharma Tower, the last shelter in a city after an apocalyptic event rocks the nation. The Tower is being controlled by evil overlord, The Keymaster, who players will have to take out. The game’s speedy mechanics include parkour elements, and slick wall running manoeuvres.
