What Is Ghostwire: Tokyo?

It takes place in an apocalyptic event.

There’s isn't currently a huge amount of information on the game but a teaser and a gameplay trailer have been released (see below).

Bethesda stated, “Tokyo is overrun by deadly supernatural forces after 99% of the city’s population vanished.”

From the looks of things the main character is the hero of this story and you as the player must fight against paranormal entities and cleanse the city of evil.


Release Date

GhostWire: Tokyo is believed to launch sometime in 2021 - this is according to the gameplay reveal viewed in the PlayStation 5 showcase event.



In the release trailer, we see civilians going about their daily lives, crossing the busy Tokyo streets, getting the train, something to eat.

Then suddenly they vanish, leaving only their clothes behind.

Ghostly and paranormal beings appear in the streets and start tormenting the few people left.

That's when we see the character the player will control.

A masked man, with no real clues as to who he is apart from his supernatural powers.



A gameplay trailer premiered at the PS5 reveal event on the 11th of June.

We get a preview as to what the enemies will look like and there's a really diverse amount of them.

The combat system is also shown which almost looks like a cinematic due to the amount of detail and smoothness of the animation.
