The gameplay mechanics have also been enhanced to make the game more engaging and interactive. You can now block projectiles while taking a bit of damage to your stamina. You can also try different ways of fighting the enemies. The makers have left a lot of room for the players to apply their creativity. There’s the new shadow skill that allows Jack to leave a copy of himself to trick the enemies.
Some levels will even feature a motorbike. It will add to the open world feeling of the game challenging you even further. The cybervoids are there too to give you an open-world experience with additional inter-missions.
Overall, Ghostrunner 2 is packed with exciting new changes and some of the old features are redone to better suit the new gameplay mechanics. Bottom line, you’re going to love this one if you enjoyed the original Ghostrunner game.
