Ghostunner 2 is one of the many games set to fill out the end-of-year period, so you may want to know all about the release date, platforms, and gameplay details for the upcoming sequel.

Ghostunner 2 is the follow-up to the cyberpunk action-platforming game that was released to critical acclaim back in 2020. The game put a focus on fast-paced movement and stylish combat, with dashes, wall runs, grapples, and much more. The sequel looks to take it up a notch with vehicle gameplay and even more variety.

So, read on for more information on Ghostrunner 2 and when you can expect to play it.

The Ghostrunner 2 release date is set for October 26th, 2023, placing it right near the end of the busy October month.

The initial reveal early in the year gave it a vague release window of 2023, so with the October release date, development seems to be on track.

Is there a Ghostrunner 2 demo?

As revealed at State of Play in September 2023, Ghostrunner 2 is getting a fresh demo as of September 14.

While we haven't had unedited gameplay revealed just yet, we have seen a glimpse of what we'll be up to in Ghostrunner 2.

In the reveal trailer, we see the protagonist riding a motorbike through tight, neon-lit corridors. This is all in between parkour segments and slashing enemies with a katana, of course.

The game is set to expand on the gameplay of the first Ghostrunner, upping the ante in almost every way with new powers, upgradeable abilities, traversal mechanics, an expanded narrative, and more enemies.

A big new feature in the game is vehicular combat involving a motorcycle, as there are now levels that take place outside of the city in the sprawling wasteland.

That's all for our explainer of Ghostrunner 2, and now you know some more information about the upcoming action platforming game.
