Ghostwire Tokyo Early Access - Release Date and Time

Thus far, 2022 has already provided some of the most important game releases of the last few years. From Horizon Forbidden West to Elden Ring, there's been no shortage of titles to play.

Now, it's time for Tango Gameworks' Ghostwire: Tokyo to take the spotlight, as the massively anticipated action-adventure is set to close out March with a bang.

Originally announced almost three years ago during E3 2019, Ghostwire: Tokyo sees players take control of Akito, a citizen of the Japanese Metropolis who becomes possessed by a detective spirit called KK. Akito is tasked with unraveling a mystery surrounding the disappearance of people in the city. 

With Tango Gameworks developing the title, fans that enjoyed The Evil Within franchise will want to get their hands on Ghostwire: Tokyo ahead of its official release on 25th March. If you're one of those, we have good news for you.

Fans who want to get their hands on Ghostwire: Tokyo can do so by forking out some extra cash. In order to get the game three days ahead of release, you'll need to purchase the Deluxe Edition of it. 

The Ghostwire: Tokyo Deluxe Edition will retail for $79.99 or the equivalent depending on your region. It doesn't just come with three extra days of early access, as it has some cosmetic goodies to take advantage of as well.

Take a look at the extra perks down below:

  • Shinobi Outfit and Kunai weapon
  • Streetwear Outfit pack

With three days of early access, that means you can start enjoying Ghostwire: Tokyo starting on Tuesday, 22nd March.

In an interview with PC Gamer, combat director Shinichiro Hara described the combat of the game as "karate meets magic," partially inspired by Kuji-kiri hand gestures.

"Hara and the combat team at Tango have created an intricate, combo-based system that utilizes movements inspired by traditional Kuji-kiri hand gestures."

With that in mind, donning a classic ninja outfit seems very exciting and might make the Deluxe Edition purchase worth it in its own right. 

It's worth mentioning that Ghostwire: Tokyo will only be available initially on PlayStation 5 and PC with a one-year timed exclusivity set in place. This means Xbox players might get around to trying the action-adventure videogame in 2023.
