Ghostrunner be Ghostwalkin’
Publisher 505 Games has announced that Project_Hel, the incoming expansion to excellent cyberpunk adventure Ghostrunner, will not meet its scheduled release date. The DLC had planned to drop next week on January 28, but will now launch on PC and console platforms March 3.
“The global release of the Project_Hel DLC will be delayed to March 3rd,” reads a team statement on Twitter. “We appreciate your understanding and want all our fans to know that we will use this bonus time to make even more worthwhile improvements while ensuring the health & safety of our team and global partners.”
Project_Hel was originally planned as a bite-sized chunk of Ghostrunner DLC, but has since grown into something of a pretty meaty expansion. As the title suggests, the new adventure will focus on Ghostrunner boss character Hel as she descends the treacherous Dharma Tower on her own slice ‘n’ dice mission. As a player character, Hel is more combat-oriented than the Ghostrunner, and also a little hardier in battle, so fans can expect the add-on to feature a helluva lot of bloodletting and limb-chopping.
The Project_Hel expansion not only includes a new character, but also an array of new combat movies, hapless enemies, and mighty bosses pitched across six new stages. All of this cathartic chaos will be backed by six bangin’ new tracks composed by artist Daniel Deluxe. So while this extra wait is a little hard on the community, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action to be had once the Project_Hel DLC finally arrives on March 3.
Ghostrunner is available now on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Amazon Luna.
