I remember chatting about a possible Ghost in the Shell MMO YEARS ago on a Free to Play Cast when Nexon had secured the rights for the popular Stand Alone Complex anime back in 2012. It was originally slated for a 2014 release and, other than that, not many details were ever released about what the game would be.
At G-Star 2014 this past week, Nexon finally dropped new information, including the trailer above. Ghost in the Shell Online will be a MMOFPS and now has a release window of "sometime in 2015" on PCs. From the trailer it looks like players will be able to turn invisible using thermoptic camouflage, share skills between players, and (of course) power armor makes an appearance.
Fans of the series have been chomping at the bit for a Ghost in the Shell MMO of any type for some time now. All that's let to find out though is exactly how Nexon decides to monetize the game, and how much that model impacts the "free-to-play" experience.
