The platforms in question that have been feeling generous as of late are Green Man Gaming and Fanatical.

On a side note, Ghostrunner 2 is off to a solid start, having its launch trailer pop up in recent times and showing Jack back in full flight. Players have been hooked to the title ever since the 2023 State of Play event dropped a playable demo for the action platformer, encompassing rip-roaring throat-slashing gameplay along with a sequence that saw Jack riding a motorbike—a first for the franchise. 

Ghostrunner 2 was released on October 26, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, with no port for last-gen platforms. The first game has sold over 2.5 million copies to date, and now, a significant bump to that figure is expected with the launch of the sequel. At the moment, the title’s off to a fantastic start, gauging its reviews from all across the spectrum as it sits at 80 Metascore on Metacritic
