Ghostwire Tokyo is Heading to Xbox Game Pass Alongside a New Update

Ghostwire Toyko Free Update

Ghostwire Tokyo is heading to Xbox and Game Pass, after its year-long PlayStation exclusivity has expired.

Ghostwire Tokyo, which hit the PC and PlayStation 5 last year, tasks your protagonist with ghostbusting their way round part of the city. That’s ghostbusting with a lower g – there aren’t any proton pack in evidence but your character has their own anti-spook arsenal.

Now, after its console exclusivity period has expired it’s coming to Xbox Series X|S and it’s also landing on PC and Xbox Game Pass. Should you care? Absolutely. In our review, we awarded an 8 out of 10, remarking that “.. it may feel like virtual tourism during a cataclysmic event at times, but that’s the charm of it.”

However, the Xbox release isn’t the only big Ghostwire Tokyo news. The same day that the game launches, a big, free update will hit all platforms. The update, dubbed the Spider’s Thread update, adds a new linear game mode, extra main game locations and new talisman.

Photo mode will also get a boost, if snapping spooks is your thing. And even if you’re not after photographing ghosts, the game’s scenery is pretty gorgeous, in a spooky, moody kind of way.

Ghostwire Tokyo arrives on Xbox Series X|S this April 12th, alongside the update. It will be available on Game Pass you’ll also be able to purchase it outright for $59.99/£59.99. If you’ve got a PlayStation Plus account you can also try a PlayStation 5 demo right now.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
