Project_Hel originally started as a smaller add-on for Ghostrunner, which released in 2020. The expansion later became its own “full-blown Ghostrunner experience”. The player will control Hel, one of the antagonists of the main story, as she goes through Dharma Tower defeating enemies and bosses. Unlike the original Ghostrunner, Hel will be able to withstand an extra attack. Furthermore, developer One More Level is currently developing the sequel title Ghostrunner 2.
In other news, Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 2 has also been delayed. Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard has also caused Sony’s stock to tank almost $20 Billion in value.
