Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex was announced a while back by developer NEOPLE. Publisher Nexon has now confirmed that the MMOFPS is due to launch in the first half of 2014.
In a new statement today, Nexon confirmed that the game was, “Developed as a first person shooter game featuring fierce hacking battles between cyborgs fighting over strategic resources.”
It added, “In addition to the dynamic gunfight action between cyborgs, the game also incorporates cyberization and various other concepts that are present in the original work. It also provides diverse contents such as cooperative battle mode, a new concept that integrates artificial intelligence with the player.”
If you haven’t seen Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, you should really give it a whirl. It’s a twisting cop drama set as a spiritual prequel to both feature films. It also has a rather amazing intro sequence:
