Ghostwire: Tokyo Releases April 12 for Xbox Series X|S

    Alongside the new Spider's Thread update.

    Bethesda and Tango Gameworks announced Ghostwire: Tokyo releases on April 12 for Xbox Series X|S alongside the “Spider’s Thread” update for the PlayStation 5 and PC versions. The new update is included with the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo for Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass owners receive the game at no additional cost. 

    Ghostwire: Tokyo players may test out their skills in the new Spider’s Thread roguelike game mode, which is separate from the main game. In Spider’s Thread, players must navigate a 30-stage gauntlet assembled from over 130 levels. Players must start from the beginning of the gauntlet if they are defeated, but a portion of the upgrades acquired through a run are retained.

    The Ghostwire: Tokyo release for Xbox Series X|S and new update includes additional story content, new skills, and an expanded Photo Mode. Additionally, the new “Reduced Horror Effects” setting will be introduced to allow even more players to experience Ghostwire: Tokyo.

    Whether you’re a returning ghost hunter raring for more content or a newcomer first stepping into a modern-day Tokyo besieged by paranormal events, we can’t wait to bring players this massive free update to Tango Gameworks’ supernatural open world action-adventure.
    On top of a new game mode, the Spider’s Thread update includes many additions to the main story campaign for Ghostwire: Tokyo. Here are a few of the exciting inclusions you can expect in this free update:
    Test Your Skill in an All-New Game Mode
    Take on a whole new kind of challenge in ‘The Spider’s Thread,’ a new mode separate from the main game and selectable from the main menu. Players must navigate a 30-stage gauntlet assembled from over 130 handcrafted levels with one simple goal: get to the end. It won’t be easy, but making your way through levels and clearing challenges will help you earn crucial upgrades to become stronger.
    But beware: if you’re defeated during a run, you’ll have to start back from the beginning. However, this time you’ll have a portion of your upgrades retained. Descend the Spider’s Thread, unlock more skills, level up and conquer this game mode for skilled Ghostwire fans!
    Uncover More in the Main Story
    The Ghostwire: Tokyo Spider’s Thread update adds new locations to visit in the ghost-riddled streets of supernatural Tokyo, including the eerie Middle School area. There’s something ominous in session inside those classrooms, but for those who really don’t like spooky games, the new “Reduced Horror Effects” setting will replace certain psychic effects with adorable SHIIBUYA HACHI stickers!
    In addition to new missions, the update features extended story cutscenes, granting players more character interaction and insight into the plot as they play through Akito and KK’s journey to stop the menacing Hannya.
    Boost Your Skills to Battle New Foes
    To stop the worlds of the living and the supernatural from colliding, players will need to face the malevolent, otherworldly Visitors seeping into Tokyo’s streets. With the Ghostwire: Tokyo Spider’s Thread update, Akito’s arsenal of skills is bolstered with new combat skills like the Counter-Attack to follow up a successful block, Quick Dodging to evade enemy attacks and the Charge Rush, an evolution of your Ethereal Weaving technique that allows you to augment your Palm Strike into an elementally charged melee strike! Players can also make use of new Tengu Wind and Spiritual Fountain talismans, allowing them to drop a whirlwind to reach new heights or a spring to replenish their Ether reserves when munitions run low.
    All these new tools in your toolbox will come in handy, as new threats have also emerged in Tokyo. Stay alert for malicious new Visitors prowling the alleys such as the fast-moving Retribution, invisible Silent Gaze or the high-flying Sanguine Dancer. With Akito’s new skills and KK at your side, however, there’s no challenge you won’t overcome to save Akito’s family and all of Tokyo!
    Expanded Photo Mode & More!
    That’s not all the exciting content to unravel in the Ghostwire: Tokyo Spider’s Thread update! Capture a souvenir pic with an expanded Photo Mode feature, including stamps to overlay on your images. Use in-game Meika to unlock figures at capsule machines scattered throughout Tokyo to unlock game models that you can even use in Photo Mode for supernatural selfies.
