Ghost in the Shell: First Assault Online might have just officially launched

    
11

The Ghost in the Shell franchise is no stranger to highly competent cyborg ninja police officers stealthing around the city in the coolest fashion possible, but did its online game just stealth launch today?

It’s a little hard to tell, but it may have. First Assault Online left open beta at the beginning of the month after a year of testing, and now the game is promoting its major 2.0 release called Renewal.

The (launch?) update overhauled the user interface, added three new playable operatives, revamped the remaining roster, reorganized operative classes, added an Electronics Center map, and introduced an elimination mode for PvP.

The online shooter is available through its website or Steam, and you can check out the official trailer after the jump.

This game promised to have PvE and Co-Op content, but every time I checked it was still just a MOBA. Not even a very good one either.

It was never a MOBA.

I thought the movie was good, but it’s true that the financials were not great. I liked Johansson’s portrayal of Kusanagi and feel the story was a nice hybrid blend of the anime series and a ‘new’ Hollywood story.

The game, however… it’s a shame they boiled such rich content down into just a shooter.

I’m tired of seeing this kind of rhetoric so long after this game’s “release”. Call it a f2p CoD clone with GiTS paint if you want, but you should be glad that Nexon and the developer studio didn’t try to create a game like DXHR (with GiTS paint over it), which the end result would be a much worse game than this shooter currently is.

The Hollywood movie on the other hand, has red flags falling all over it since its official trailer, and coupled with critics reviews, I am glad I didn’t watch it and I have no plan to, either. It is a much larger shame to the franchise than this game is.

You are eright about DXHR, if that was to be an online game, but for a single player game it would’ve been great (at least I think so).

1. The hollywood movie was garbage and an insult to GITS
2. The game was around since October 2015, long before that garbage movie was conceived.

After the movie mega-bomb they probably didn’t want to squander any more money on a franchise not going anywhere fast.

I was talking about the movie’s financials. It was the bomb of the summer so far. Developers and media in general may be moving away from the IP in general.
