Hack and slash your way through enemies

Ghostrunner 2 is a punishing FPP slasher that is frustratingly rewarding. Take on the role of a cyborg ninja as you hack and slash your way through enemies as you jump and slide around the environments, wielding your trusty katana.

Take on challenging, new enemies as you traverse interactive environments including exploding barrels, destructible walls, helpful neutral entities, and countless improvements that keep combat exciting and fresh. Can’t get enough? Dive even deeper into the lore and plot with the new dialogue system. Save humanity in style as you decimate your opponents while listening to the captivating synthwave soundtrack featuring new music from Daniel Deluxe, We Are Magonia, Gost, Dan Terminus, and Arek Reikowski.

Take to the streets on your bike for more mayhem

If challenging first person slasher games are your thing then Ghostrunner II will test your skills and reaction times to the limit. While the early stages are challenging, once you get your head around the mechanics there's quite a logical flow to the gameplay and controls. If you were a fan of the first game then I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how the developers have improved almost every aspect of the gameplay. And, if the running around slicing enemies starts to get boring, wait until you're introduced to your bike. This adds an extra layer of mayhem and fun.

It's fast, frantic and a whole lot of fun. It also has that... "Just one more go" element that means that you'll stay up playing it way longer than you intended. This game is a total blast from start to finish.
