Ghost in the Shell Online shows off game modes and characters

Well, I mean... all right.

The first beta test for Ghost in the Shell Online is just around the corner, and it’s going to feature a lot of shooting. But how will the various characters in the game play? What game modes will be available? New videos from the official site answered those questions, and Steparu helpfully compiled them so that you can sit down and watch the whole loadout at once.

Each of the eight playable characters has a unique skill of some kind, ranging from sentry turrets to mobile bombs to a stealth cover shield. The game modes also look unique, complete with some deployments of the series’ trademark Tachikoma units. Check out both videos past the cut. The game is confirmed for a North American release sometime in 2015.

Hmmm… When I think of a Ghost in the Shell MMO, the last thing that comes to mind is a lobby shooter. For the amount of lore in the series I thought the developers would try for something closer to a open world MMO with Shadowrun type mechanics.

One of the coolest properties to ever get wasted on crap games.

jgauthier45 Same reason they report on a lot of online only non-MMO games. Because they cover more than just strictly MMO’s and will cover news for popular online games that people read. There’s simply not enough MMO news people care about to fill every single day with stories, they’re going to have to dig deep into the, “Bullshit news story about a bullshit game nobody cares about and will bitch about in the comments section.” bag to do that, so instead they cover news for a game like this or Diablo 3 or League of Legends. They’re not MMO’s by any means, but they’re online-only games that people give a crap about and will click the headlines to read about.

jgauthier45 I don’t mind them reporting on non mmos but I agree nothing about it seems mmoish at all. It just looked like an arena shooter. The name “ghost in the shell ” isn’t enough to make me want to play a game like that.

Not an MMO on any level.  It’s just a Counterstrike style shooter with, classes like TF.  Including 3 game modes: Demolition, Team Death Match, and Conquest (team tactics).  Not really sure why MOP is reporting on it at this point, other than that Nexon is trying to label it as an MMO, which it isn’t.  In any sense of the word.

I mean it looks neat enough for me to give it a shot if it comes out here.
Although for now the only Nexon shooter which has me interested is Dirty Bomb.
But this looks like it could have potential to be cool.
