The Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex first-person shooter, First Assault, is free for all players to try out this weekend. If you’ve yet to delve into the team-oriented multiplayer game, now’s your chance to do so. Nexon America, the game’s publisher, has announced that the free weekend starts today and runs until May 1.
Participating players (as in, anyone who logs on) will receive a free M4A1 weapon skin for the promotion’s duration. They’ll get to keep that after the period ends, provided they keep playing the game. Anyone who’s interested in playing the game after the free period is over can purchase the Specialist Early Access Pack, which grants players immediate access to the game’s Early Access program, one bonus operative unlock, three weapon skins, and 200,000 GP of in-game currency. The pack is available at a 50% discount this weekend, and provides $35 worth of content for $7.49.
In First Assault, players take on the roles of Major Motoko Kusanagi and the rest of Section 9. The game is based on the Standalone Complex TV series, which aired over a decade ago.
In First Assault, society has embraced new technology, leaving themselves vulnerable to malicious super-hackers. Cyber terrorism has evolved and so must you! Dive beyond humanity as you upgrade and augment yourself into a walking weapon, capable of super human feats. Deliver the first assault by coordinating strategic attacks, hacking enemy weaponry and utilizing SkillSync to link-up and share cyber skills with your allies, in this gripping team shooter inspired by “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex”, the critically acclaimed series based on Shirow Masamune’s original comic “The Ghost in the Shell”.
Check it out on Steam.
