Ghostrunner Expansion ‘Project_Hel’ Announced, January 2022 Release; Free Festive Cosmetic DLC

Publisher 505 Games alongside developers and partners at All In! Games, One More Level, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks have announced that their cult classic first-person cyberpunk parkour action game, Ghostrunner, will be receiving an expansion introducing a new playable character. Titled Project_Hel, players control the titular Hel, one of the original game’s bosses, on her own personal quest where combat is the name of the game. Further, she can take one more hit than the Ghostrunner while also being purposefully designed for veterans and prospective new players.

Additionally, expansion was initially meant to be a smaller-scale DLC before becoming its own, fully-fledged beast. There are 6 new levels, with 6 new music tracks composed by Daniel Deluxe and several new enemies and boss battles. Lastly, intrigued players can sign up for the title’s private beta, where participation guarantees a spot in the game’s credits.

Lastly, players can look forward to a new free cosmetic holiday pack for Ghostrunner on December 7, including Rudolph’s Run and Boon swords, the Solstice katana, and the Nini Wonderland blade. Each weapon can also be accessorized with matching gloves.

Project_Hel is releasing for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Amazon Luna, and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG on January 27, 2022, for $14.99.
