Today, publishers 505 Games, alongside developers and partners One More Level, All In! Games, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks proudly present Project_Hel, an expansion for the million-selling first-person cyberpunk action game starring a new character. Project_Hel launches January 27, 2022, but eager fans can sign up here for a chance to enter an early private beta. On December 7, players can embrace festive cheer with a free new cosmetic Holiday pack.
Initially planned as a smaller DLC, Project_Hel has grown into a full-blown Ghostrunner experience. Take control of Hel, one of the original games’ bosses, as she descends Dharma Tower on a bloody quest of her own. Designed to appeal to new players and veterans, she’s more combat-oriented and can survive an additional attack compared to the Ghostrunner.
Run-on walls soar through neon cityscapes and slice through six levels while mastering Hel’s powers through her own ability progression system. Battle new enemies and bosses to the beat of six fresh tracks courtesy of electronic musician Daniel Deluxe. Anyone who wants to play sooner than January can sign up for the private beta launching later this year. Those selected to participate will be included in Project_Hel’s credits.
To commemorate the upcoming holidays, enhance Jack’s look in the original game with a free festive sword and glove bundle on December 7. Paint the town red with the Rudolph’s Run and Boon swords, both inspired by gift-wrapping. Wield the frosty Solstice katana or slice and dice with the Nini Wonderland blade and accessorize each one with its own matching glove.
Project_Hel will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Amazon Luna, and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG on January 27, 2022, for $14.99/€14,99/£12.49.
