As has been the case with some other AAA PlayStation titles, you may be worried about the Ghostwire Tokyo price. Luckily, the game will not be following in the footsteps of titles such as Deathloop, Returnal, and Horizon Forbidden West.

The price of the base game will come in at $59.99/£59.99, with the deluxe edition bumping things up to $79.99/£79.99. The deluxe edition does come with additional cosmetics, an exclusive in-game weapon, and three days early access, meaning you can start playing on March 22
