New GhostWire: Tokyo gameplay trailer shown during Sony reveal event

Developer Tango Gameworks showed off a first look at gameplay footage from GhostWire: Tokyo during Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event on June 11.

GhostWire: Tokyo was first revealed during Bethesda’s 2019 E3 press conference, where it made a big splash — particularly because of former Tango Gameworks creative director Ikumi Nakamura’s fantastic presentation. Nakamura stepped down from her role at Tango Gameworks in September 2019, however.

GhostWire: Tokyo is expected to an action-adventure game where players must uncover a mystery and save Tokyo from a whole host of creepy spirits. This is fitting, as Tango Gameworks is known for its horror games, like The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2. During the E3 presentation, however, the developer said this wasn’t necessarily a horror game.
