Ghost in the Shell Online Shooter Hitting Steam Next Month

Nexon’s Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online is finally arriving on PC next month.

The game will be coming to PC via Steam some time in December, and it will also be available through Nexon’s own launcher.

Developed by Neople, the game is a team-based, first person shooter that is more akin to your typical FPS than the deeply intriguing and cyberpunk Ghost in the Shell.

    I’m happy to have more GitS-related games but


    I’d rather see Ubisoft have their take on it. Ghost in the Watchdogs or something. Just don’t put any dank memes on it.

    Would’ve been nice to have a Deux Ex style game in this universe.

    The inception style horns and totally serious tone look really weird since while GiTS is serious it has it’s lighthearted moments and characters (Batou, Tachikomas, The Mayor in the manga).

    I forgot about this game. Well I don’t like free to play games so I will pass it up.

    Eww keep Ubisoft far away from it. If Watch Dogs is any indicator then Ubi would do a horrible job.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution, if it had better integrated bosses, would pretty much be begging for Ghost in the Shell license. Currently this looks like Starbreeze made Syndicate FPS with more issues…

    I didn’t want my first comment on the site to go like this, but you totally posted this in the PS3 section lol.

    I do wish we could get a GITS RPG in the vein of Deus Ex though. ):

    Ha, I’ve noticed when Brandon miscategorizes he tags it as PS3. Funny.

    I played the beta and i liked how GITS it actually was, imagine just the shootout parts in the series and that’s what you get here.
