Action-horror title GhostWire: Tokyo is what may be the final timed exclusive from Bethesda that PlayStation may ever see following the acquisition of parent company ZeniMax Media by Microsoft last year. In GhostWire: Tokyo, Tokyo is overrun by deadly supernatural forces, perpetrated by a dangerous occultist known as Hannya, causing Tokyo’s population to vanish in an instant. Akito, a young man critically injured in a car accident minutes before the entire ward of Shibuya has their spirits ripped from their bodies. Allying with a powerful spectral entity that calls itself KK, a quest for vengeance and mastery of a powerful arsenal of abilities awaits and it’s Akito’s job to unravel the dark truth behind the disappearance as they face the unknown.

This first-person, open-world title will have players traversing the map, hitting landmark after landmark to rid the Shibuya District while combatting the various apparitions that are thrown at them. Akito has control of elemental attacks (Water, Fire, and Wind) which will handily take care of foes and can also fall back on paper talismans and a bow and arrow for combat.

The stylish combat, vivid colors, and unique animations in GhostWire: Tokyo is sure to make the latest game from Shinji Mikami’s Tango Gameworks studio a hit for gamers this spring.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is the newest installment in the Borderlands franchise. Players embark on an epic adventure full of whimsy, wonder, and high-powered weaponry!
