Ghostrunner gets the Project_Hel expansion in January


Project_Hel will put a new perspective on the first-person free-running action game

Ghostrunner put an interesting first-person spin on cyberpunk action. And it looks like it’s getting even more content to free-run across in the future. Publisher 505 Games announced today that Ghostrunner is getting a DLC expansion, Project_Hel, adding a new playable character and campaign to Ghostrunner.

The new expansion, from 505 and developers and partners One More Level, All In! Games, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks, arrives on Jan. 27, 2022. Those who want to get in early can also sign up for a chance to get into an early private beta here.

Though 505 Games says it was initially planned as a smaller DLC, Project_Hel has become a full-on campaign with its own character. Hel, one of Ghostrunner‘s boss characters, will be playable. Her take on running is a little more combat-oriented, as she can take one more hit than the Ghostrunner.

Six new tracks from musician Daniel Deluxe will be part of the expansion, as well as six levels and a special ability progression system for Hel.

Ghostrunner is also getting a free new cosmetic pack to ring in the holidays. On Dec. 7, a festive sword and glove bundle will arrive, letting you ring in the Yuletide cheer in the cyberpunk world of Ghostrunner. Even in a dystopian future, you can’t forget about the true spirit of the season.

Ghostrunner Project_Hel will launch on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, Switch, Amazon Luna, and PC via Steam, Epic, and GOG on Jan. 27, 2022. It’ll run $14.99 for the expansion. For those who dug Ghostrunner the first time around, seems like the holidays will have a little bit more for you to run, slash, and enjoy in the cyberpunk future.
