Ghostwire: Tokyo celebrates Xbox arrival with free DLC

Much like Deathloop before it, Ghostwire: Tokyo will be getting a free update once it comes to the Xbox Series S/X.

Tango Gameworks' Ghostwire: Tokyo is officially coming to the Xbox Series S/X and the Game Pass on April 12. To celebrate its arrival on the Xbox platforms, the studio is releasing a DLC-sized update for the game, Spider's Thread.

It's a shame Ghostwire: Tokyo didn't do as well as expected - it deserves to get a sequel.

This free update will add several new features to the game, including a new game mode with 120 new levels and collectible upgrades. Players can also explore a new middle school area with extended cutscenes available for first-timers and to those who fancy a replay.

Finally, the Spider's Thread adds two more enemy types named "the invisible Silent Gaze" and "elusive Retribution", which sound a lot like the stuff of nightmares that fill Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Tango promises to add several quality-of-life improvements alongside the Spider's Thread update to make a return trip to the haunted Tokyo more worthwhile.

Tango Gameworks is now branching out to different genres after being primarily known for survival horror games.

Ghostwire: Tokyo was one-half of the two PlayStation 5 exclusives developed by Bethesda Softworks' subsidiaries. The other one, Deathloop, was by Arkane Studios and received critical acclaim when it came out two years ago.

Although Ghostwire: Tokyo did not receive similar acclaim, horror game fans enjoyed it nonetheless. It was also one of Shinji Mikami's last two projects with Tango Game works, the other being Hi-Fi Rush, before leaving the studio.

Fans of the twisted and horrific will have a field day over the next few weeks. In addition to Ghostwire: Tokyo's new update and Xbox port, the Resident Evil 4 Remake, which is reviewing well, is also coming out on March 24.
