A new game based on the cult manga and anime franchise Ghost in the Shell has arrived on Steam Early Access. The game is a tactical, squad-based multiplayer first person shooter and it has a rather unweildy title Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online.
For now, the game has five maps and three game modes, with more features planned for the future. Interestingly, while the Early Access version costs 5$, the full release will be free-to-play.
Unfortunately, it is going to feature microtransactions, although it is still unknown how much impact they’re going to have on gameplay (the developer’s previous game, Dungeon Fighter Online, has been both accused of being pay-to-win and praised for avoiding it).
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online can be bought on Steam.
