Ghost in the Shell Online confirmed for US, Europe and more regions

Nexon America has announced plans to launch the free-to-play shooter Ghost in the Shell Online in several regions. We recently found out that this game is going to launch in the US first, but now it’s officially confirmed that Ghost in the Shell Online is going to release in Europe, Australia and Latin America, as well as Korea, where the game is being developed by Neople.

Ghost in the Shell Online: First Connection is a first-person shooter based on the popular anime, and characters will have various skills such as speed, support or stealth, among others. A skill share system allows players to share their abilities with other nearby players. The game will include PvE and PvP modes.

Nexon has a very strong catalog for the following years. Besides Ghost in the Shell Online, it includes two more shooters: Splash Damage’s Dirty Bomb and Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski’s Bluestreak, in development at his new studio Boss Key Productions. But Nexon also has the charming Peria Chronicles, the ambitious MapleStory 2, side-scrolling brawler Closers Online, cute retro MMORPG Tree of Savior and a few others, so it’s shaping up to be a great year for the Korean studio.

    Definitely looking forward to this! Not only as a fan of GITS, and not only as a fan of stylized shooters (between this and Overwatch this year, I’m in heaven there), but also because there’s just not enough cyberpunk-themed/augmentation-based multiplayer shooters anymore.

    I remember really enjoying Project Snowblind multiplayer on the Xbox1 back in the day, the shooter that Crystal Dynamics made that was supposed to be Deus Ex: Clan Wars. It was really cool using augmentations in that game; been waiting a long time for another game to come along with that kind of focus.

    Hoping Neople pulls off something really fun with this :)

      I think this can be decent and I’m truly surprised at such a swift announcement for a global release, great stuff. I see this game as a Blacklight Retribution meets Ghost Recon Phantoms, could be a fun little shooter with the added bonus of the anime name. Looking good :)

          Only the korean one, but signups are closed, I think, since the beta has already begun.

            Nothing about that yet, neither about Steam. And knowing it’s Nexon, IP blocks are very likely.
