The next project from the developer of The Evil Within has been revealed. As part of the Bethesda press conference at E3 2019, GhostWire: Tokyo was unveiled, and it promises to be somewhat on the creepy side from studio Tango Gameworks.
Initially splitting off from Capcom, Tango Gameworks was formed by Shinji Mikami. The creator of Resident Evil went on to create two rather well received horror titles in the form of The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2. As such, many gamers were intrigued to see exactly what Tango Gameworks would have planned next.
That question has been answered at E3 2019. During Bethesda's press conference, Tango Gameworks revealed the debut cinematic trailer for GhostWire: Tokyo, an intense-looking supernatural title that revolves around the strange disappearances of people in Toyko. This initial trailer can be seen below for any interested potential players.
GhostWire is set in a version of Tokyo where a series of mysterious disappearances are taking place. The player is then tasked with finding out the root cause of the problem, which (unfortunately for those involved) happens to be supernatural in nature. From there on in, the player will need to face off against these occult forces, using their own mysterious "spectral" powers and unravelling the questions about exactly why this is happening.
Although details are thin on the ground at the moment, it's nonetheless an intriguing concept, particularly if GhostWire: Tokyo is able to build in elements of conspiracy and urban legend to develop some kind of mystery out of its plot. On top of that, it appears as thought it may have slightly more of an action focus than previous games from Tango Gameworks, which may be a neat extra element to keep long-term fans engaged.
That said, it's worth bearing in mind that gameplay footage is yet to be shown, so it still remains to be seen whether the game is shaping up well. However, the concept itself is one that players will no doubt want to get behind - here's hoping that it can deliver on its potential when the game does finally get a release date.
