Publisher 505 Games, alongside developers and partners developers One More Level, 3D Realms, Slipgate Ironworks, and All in! Games, have announced the Ghostrunner expansion “Project_Hel,” as well as the free cosmetic downloadable content “Holiday Pack.”
“Project_Hel” will launch on January 27, 2022 for $14.99 / €14.99 / £12.49. The cosmetic “Holiday Pack” will launch on December 7, 2021 as a free download.
Get the details below, via 505 Games.
Initially planned as a smaller downloadable content, “Project_Hel” has grown into a full-blown Ghostrunner experience. Take control of Hel, one of the original games’ bosses, as she descends Dharma Tower on a bloody quest of her own. Designed to appeal to new players and veterans, she’s more combat-oriented and can survive an additional attack compared to the Ghostrunner.
Run on walls, soar through neon cityscapes, and slice through six levels while mastering Hel’s powers through her own ability progression system. Battle new enemies and bosses to the beat of six fresh tracks courtesy of electronic musician Daniel Deluxe. Anyone who wants to play sooner than January can sign up for the private beta launching later this year. Those selected to participate will be included in “Project_Hel”‘s credits.
To commemorate the upcoming holidays, enhance Jack’s look in the original game with a free festive sword and glove bundle on December 7. Paint the town red with the Rudolph’s Run and Boon swords, both inspired by gift-wrapping. Wield the frosty Solstice katana or slice and dice with the Nini Wonderland blade and accessorize each one with its own matching glove.
