Ghostrunner Update Adds Two New Modes and More

Ghostrunner turns roguelite with a softer core in the latest update.

The latest Ghostrunner update adds more costumes, a roguelite mode, and, at the spectrum’s other end, an assist mode. The two modes are free and available now on all platforms, though the Neon Pack costs $4.99 and will release on Nintendo Switch in a few weeks.

Ghostrunner‘s Wave mode is the new roguelite experience, one that drops you in a closed-off arena and pits you against relentless enemy hordes. Clearing one wave unlocks perks that carry over to the next round, and should you manage to survive them all, you get a fancy new sword.

Assist Mode includes three options: one extra life, shorter cooldowns, and slower gameplay overall. It’s still a one-hit death scenario, but one that offers greater control over how you experience it.

Finally is the Neon Pack, a new DLC set that gives you Neon Night, Afterglow, Luminescence, and Glint.

All this will be available in Ghostrunner‘s PS5 and Xbox Series X|S-native version when it releases on September 28. And don’t forget that Ghost Runner 2 is in the works.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
