Ghost In The Shell – First Assault Now Available on Steam Early Access

Nexon’s take on the Cyberpunk world of Ghost In Shell: Stand Alone Complex, titled Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault, is now available via Steam Early Access.

Set in the year 2030 players are put into the role of Section 9 special forces member as the nation of Japan is under siege by members of a cyber terrorist organization. In order to combat this threat the player has been augmented with cybernetic enhancements that allow them to exceed current human limitations – deploy turrets, see in the dark with infra-red vision and more!

The game will eventually go free-to-play but for now it is available in as an early access build for a minimum of $5. As with other games that Nexon has published – expect some form of microtransactions with this title. There are a number of different buy-in tiers for early access beyond the initial $5 investment that will unlock some extras:

  • Recurit Pack ($5.49 CDN) – Access to the closed beta + one exclusive weapon skin.
  • Operative Pack ($7.69 CDN) – Access to the closed beta + Two exclusive weapon skins + 100,000 GP for early access and 100,000 GP for the eventual open beta.
  • Specialist Pass ($10.19 CDN) – Access to closed beta + three exclusive weapon skins + one extra character slots + 1000,000 GP bonus for closed & open beta.
  • Elite Access Pass ($32.99 CDN) – Access to closed beta + three exclusive weapon skins + three extra character slots + 500,000 GP bonus for open & open beta.

Nexon has also released the recommended system specs for the game.
