Ghostwire: Tokyo Spider’s Thread Update
In addition to the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo Xbox edition, a new update is available for all formats. The Spider’s Thread Update brings an all-new game mode, new areas to explore, extended story cutscenes, and expanded combat options.
The Spider’s Thread adds a roguelite element to the game. The mode tasks players to navigate a 30-stage gauntlet selected from over 120 hand-crafted levels. Some stages are straightforward, such as tackling a combat arena of Visitors, while others require a variety of other essential ghost-hunting skills to surpass like stealth and navigating Tokyo’s rooftops. As you make your way through the increasingly intense stages and clear special challenges, you’ll earn Nekomata Koban to become stronger. This can then be exchanged with the friendly feline shopkeeper for crucial skill upgrades, beads and enhancements. Should you be defeated, some of those upgrades you’ve earned will be retained, making you stronger for your next run.
Ghostwire: Tokyo is available now for Xbox Series X|S. The game is offered as part of a Game Pass subscription. The Spider’s Thread Update is free for all players on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
