Ghostrunner Project_Hel Expansion Introduces New Campaign and Playable Character in January

First-person cyberpunk action platformer Ghostrunner will be getting a new expansion called Project_Hel. The DLC will add a new campaign with a new playable character and players will be able to get their hands on the expansion at the end of January 2022.

Developed in partnership between 505 Games, One More Level, All In! Games, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks, the new expansion was originally planned to be a smaller DLC but is now a “full-blown Ghostrunner experience”. One of the game’s original bosses, Hel, is the focus of the DLC (as you may have guessed with its name). Across six new levels, she’ll be descending Dharma Tower while taking on new enemies and bosses. Hel is intended to be more combat oriented and will have her own ability progression system. To help with this, she also has the capability to survive an extra attack compared to the original Ghostrunner Jack.

The expansion will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Amazon Luna, and PC on January 27, 2022. Before then, the expansion will have a private beta test on unspecified platforms. Those wanting to sign up for the beta can fill out a form but be aware you will need to be a member of the official Ghostrunner Discord and official Ghostrunner subreddit to be considered for selection. The beta will also be under NDA so can not be streamed or shared.

In just a few days time, all players can make use of the free cosmetic Holiday pack that includes festive swords and gloves. Players will get the gift-wrapping inspired Rudolph’s Run and Boon swords, as well as the frosty Solstice katana and the Nini Wonderland blade. Each will have their own matching glove accessory. The DLC pack will be arriving on all platforms in just five days’ time on December 7.
