Nexon has announced that it will release an online PC FPS called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
in the first half of 2014, in partnership with Kodansha Ltd., the comic book publisher behind the long-running Ghost in the Shell
series.Stand Alone Complex
will be based on the Japanese animated series of the same name
and will offer up a cooperative battle mode, as well as other ways to battle with and against cyborgs. Considering the game is coming from Nexon (the maker of games like Maple Story
, Combat Arms
, and Dragon Nest
), it probably comes as no surprise to learn the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
will be free-to-play and supported by microtransactions.
We've got almost a year to wait for this one, but Nexon also points out that it is only the first of a few different games it will be making with Kodansha as part of a deal announced in December 2012.
