Ghostrunner: Story-Driven Project_Hel DLC Announced, Launching January

Next year, a new story-driven DLC is coming to first-person cyberpunk action-platformer, Ghostrunner, and it’s called Project_Hel. 

IGN revealed the news yesterday after developer 505 Games teased the “Ultimate DLC” last week. It turns out that “Ultimate DLC” was Project_Hel, the upcoming story-driven DLC where players will control Hel, one of the bosses from the game. Project_Hel will go live in January, but before that, some players will have the chance to go hands-on with it during a private beta held sometime before the DLC’s launch. 

Hel will be a “combat-oriented character designed to appeal to ‘new players and veterans,’ and will feature her own ability progression system,” according to IGN. Project_Hel is a story that takes place in six new missions. Hel has to descend from Dharma Tower which was heavily featured in base game. Project_Hel will feature six new songs by Daniel Deluxe, as well as new enemies and bosses. 

505 games IGN that it was initially planned as a smaller DLC before becoming a “full-blown Ghostrunner experience.” The studio also revealed that a new Holiday Pack would hit the game on December 7, and it’s a free cosmetics pack that includes holiday swords with matching gloves and more. 

As Project_Hel waits to launch in January 2019, you can read how the native PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S Ghostrunner versions launched in September. Then, check out this flashy neon pack that launched back in August alongside new assist options and a roguelike wave mode.
