Bethesda has confirmed that Tango Gameworks’ Ghostwire: Tokyo will finally be arriving on Xbox Series X|S consoles on April 12th, marking the closure of the timed exclusivity window that previously kept the game off the platform. It’ll be making its debut on Xbox Game Pass, meaning it’ll be free to play for active subscribers on both Xbox Series X|S platforms and on PC.
It doesn’t end there – there’s also a massive update on the way, dubbed the ‘Spider’s Thread’ update, which will bring a whole host of new content to the game. It might be a year old, but that doesn’t mean it has been given up on by its developer, Tango Gameworks.
Ghostwire: Tokyo Will Be Expanded Soon
On April 12th, Ghostwire: Tokyo will be added to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, and across all platforms – including PlayStation 5 – the Spider’s Thread update will drop, and it’ll be totally free for players to consume.
Here’s a super-short teaser trailer published by Bethesda Softworks on YouTube that perfectly showcases what’s coming in the Spider’s Thread update – it looks freaky:
Reportedly, the new update includes an all-new game mode simply titled ‘The Spider’s Thread’, which features a super-challenging, thirty-stage gauntlet. There’s an extension coming to the main story, a broadening of the map, brand-new combat skills, an enhanced photo mode, and a range of other upgrades and updates that Bethesda – and Tango Gameworks – are keeping secret for now.
On the 21st of March, Ghostwire: Tokyo will also be available to play through PS Plus Extra – when combined with the impending Xbox launch and the update, it’s safe to say that Ghostwire: Tokyo is set to see something of a resurgence in popularity.
Recently, Tango Gameworks enjoyed the massively successful launch of Hi-Fi Rush, a surprise title that was released the very same day that it was announced.
