GhostWire: Tokyo has amassed over 6 million active players
Crafted by Tango Gameworks, “GhostWire: Tokyo” was released in March 2022, available on both PC and PlayStation 5. By April 12, 2023, it made its debut on Xbox Series X/S, simultaneously joining the Xbox Game Pass roster.
Recently, Tango Gameworks proclaimed that “GhostWire: Tokyo” has amassed over 6 million active players, celebrating the milestone with a commemorative poster. To put it in perspective, as of June 20 this year, the active player count had just surpassed 5 million. This signifies a remarkable influx of an additional million players in less than a quarter, a commendable feat for a game that’s been on the market for over a year.
“GhostWire: Tokyo” is an immersive first-person action-adventure game with sandbox elements, a magnum opus of Shinji Mikami’s studio, meticulously constructed with Unreal Engine 4. The developers endeavored to depict the amalgamation of Tokyo’s contemporary and historical cultures, seamlessly integrating it with its myriad streets and alleyways. Set against the modern backdrop of Shibuya in Tokyo, the game introduces traditional monsters and spirits from age-old tales and folklore, reimagined and interwoven to epitomize Japanese spectral culture in a novel light.
The PC version of “GhostWire: Tokyo” incorporates a plethora of graphic enhancements, from Unreal Engine’s Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) to NVIDIA’s DLSS and even AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR). It also embraces ray-tracing technologies, such as ray-traced reflections and shadows. Given the game’s predominant nocturnal setting, steeped in ghostly themes, the integration of ray tracing augments its atmospheric depth.
