Ghost in the Shell Online Shooter on the Horizon


Publisher NEXON announced that they plan to launch their "PC online game service of Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX in the first half of 2014." According to the press release, this is going to be a first person shooter and will feature "fierce hacking battles between cyborgs fighting over strategic resources."

There's also talk of "dynamic gunfight action between cyborgs" and other cool things that were present in the original work. Other features were mentioned like "cooperative battle mode, a new concept that integrates artificial intelligence with the player."

The project is in the hands of development studio NEOPLE, which was responsible for titles like Dungeon & Fighter and Cyphers. Apparently, Dungeon & Fighter has 400 million members worldwide and has a 3 million concurrent players in China.

Why an online shooter? Why??

Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite movies. I'm sure most of you know about it, so be honest, are you truly happy about this?

Yeah, shame it's going to be an online shooter really, :/ it's a good world to work with. Deus Ex has a lot of nice Ghost in the shell-feeling though.

Yeah, Deux Ex HR has that Ghost in the Shell feel to it, neatly set against a Blade Runner-ish backdrop.

there seem to be so many good ideas, like DC Universe and this one that just go to waste because they turn into another online piece of crap in a see of crap on a planet full of crap.

Only if they get naked to cloak like in the movie.

There was a UT2k4 mod that was based on GITS at some point...... Neotokyo or something. Google it.
