Cyberpunk parkour game Ghostrunner‘s long-awaited DLC Project_Hel launches on Switch today! While PC and console owners have been able to dive into this new content since the beginning of March, we’ve had to be just a little bit more patient to see what Project_Hel has in store for us.
This DLC is a prequel to the base game and focuses on Hel, a combat android who is fuelled by her hatred of her creator. She is supposed to be on a mission to stop a rebellion at the base of the city. She is not built the same way as other Ghostrunners, which makes her unstable and impulsive, but she tries to stay on mission while looking for loopholes and a way to kill her creator.
Hel controls very differently from Jack, as she uses the Rage Bar to build up to deadly attacks and a Super Jump to move around effortlessly. This DLC will let you slice your way through four new enemy types and two new exciting bosses across seven brand new levels. And there’s also some more outstanding music from returning composer Daniel Deluxe.
In our review of Ghostrunner, we gave the base game a 6 out of 10, lamenting the performance and the difficulty while praising the fast-paced combat. Hopefully, the DLC has learned some lessons and will perfect the adrenaline-pumping Ghostrunner formula. You can pick up the prequel for $14.99 / €14.99 / £12.49 on the eShop.
For now, check out the launch trailer from the DLC’s Steam launch last month:
