The Ghost in the Shell online shooter is live now on Steam

    
28

Say this one ten times fast: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online is live today on Steam’s early access platform. The EA packs run from $4.99 to $29.99, though there’s a steep price cut for the middle tiers right now.

Nexon and Neople consider this phase a beta and have asked for feedback; they’ve also addressed why such an iconic IP has been turned into an online shooter:

With such a wealth of great content covered in Stand Alone Complex, picking a genre was no easy feat. However, while watching the series we were particularly excited by Episode 24 of Season One, in which the wrongfully accused team at Section 9 are tested to their limits, forced to take on an opposing Special Ops team in order to clear their names. This episode really made us imagine what it would be like to fight together as a perfectly synchronized team like Section 9, which helped us decide to bring that fantasy to life in a tactical team based shooter.

But we don’t just want to make a game that we want to play, we want to build one that you, the fans do. Our vision for First Assault is to work closely with the community to shape and build the best possible game. We held our first beta test a few months ago and received invaluable feedback about the game experience, maps and modes. Since that test we have been hard at work improving the in-game environment, as well as controls and content, and we’re now ready to reveal the initial results to the community through our Early Access program.

Check out the screens and launch trailer below.

It’s somewhat mind boggling that a F2P game’s beta testing requires player to pay to get in… oh wait never mind I still remember CN BnS beta lol.

CthulhuDawg Not sure what you’re looking at, but they’ve been “Mostly Positive” since the game launched.  Currently 300 Positive, 100 negatives.
