Ghostrunner, based on the Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine, is set just after a massive cataclysm. A gigantic tower represents the last bastion where humanity can take refuge. In an atmosphere of poverty and extreme violence, players will take on the role of a hero whose job is to get the better of the treacherous ruler of the Tower known as the Keymaster.
The title is heavily focused on the “1 Shot, 1 Kill concept,” allowing you to take down each enemy with a single shot. With definitely intriguing mechanics, which we can’t wait to test firsthand. Ghostrunner is among the most interesting titles expected to be released in the last days of October.
