A new Ghostrunner update has dropped, adding new modes and cosmetics to the game. 

A new update has been released for Ghostrunner, bringing two new modes with it (via TechRaptor). The first mode that has been added is Wave Mode. This mode has a good amount of randomization through its use of procedurally generated enemies and formations. If players can complete all 20 waves, they will be able to unlock an exclusive new sword. The second mode that was added to the game is Assist Mode. This mode adds three toggleable options that will make gameplay easier. The options are shorter cooldowns on abilities, slower gameplay, and an extra life. 

The new Ghostrunner update also added the Neon Pack. The Neon Pack gives gamers access to four sets of gloves and katanas. This cosmetic DLC has been delayed on the Nintendo Switch, and is expected to release for the system in the coming weeks. The Neon Pack will be included in Jack's Bundle, a collection that includes all cosmetics in one bundle. The collection is available for players to pick up starting today. A separate Summer Collection bundle will be released on September 7th. 

Ghostrunner will be making its way to next-gen consoles in late September. These versions of the game will support post-processing HDR, 3D audio, 4K resolution with 120 fps gameplay, and a ray-tracing fidelity mode. The PlayStation 5 version of the game will make use of the DualSense's haptic feedback. All of the modes that have been released for Ghostrunner since its release on PC and current-gen systems will be included in the next-gen version, including the Wave and Assist modes. 

Ghostrunner is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. The game will come to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on September 28th.
