Ghostwire: Tokyo gets a visual novel prelude—and it’s free
In something of a surprising announcement, Bethesda and Tango Gameworks today revealed Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude, a visual novel for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 that serves as an introduction to what awaits in Ghostwire: Tokyo.
The good news is that the game is available now—and the even better news is that it’s free.
“Dive deeper into the world of Ghostwire with the Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude,” reads the announcement. “In this exciting visual novel adventure, players will join the mysterious KK and his team of supernatural detectives as they investigate an unusual disappearance. However, along their journey they’ll stumble upon something even more sinister. Players can choose different interactions with KK’s associates to piece together their stories in Ghostwire’s unique prequel.”
I had the chance to get an early look at Ghostwire: Tokyo recently, and came away legitimately excited for playing the full game. While I’ve spent no time with Prelude just yet, it’s always neat to see effort put into bonus games such as this that help expand upon the story of a bigger title.
Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude will also be coming to Steam and the Epic Games Store on March 8th. Meanwhile, Ghostwire: Tokyo itself hits on March 25th.
