Ghostrunner will be getting a free upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S next year in 2021.

The announcement of the free upgrades for Ghostrunner was made earlier today through the official Twitter account for the game. Everyone who purchases the game on the Xbox One or PS4 will receive a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or PS5 next year in 2021, when the next-gen port for Ghostrunner eventually releases.

Currently, there's no precise release date for Ghostrunner on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Developer One More Level also hasn't announced whether you can carry over your progress to the next-gen consoles, or whether you'll be able to carry over your platform-exclusive katana to next-gen. Every current-gen platform for Ghostrunner has an exclusive katana, and you can see each one just below.

Ghostrunner, if you're unaware, is a cyberpunk-esque action game that's brutally quick. You spin, slash, jump, and wall-run your way through levels with precision, to beat certain missions as quickly as possible. At least, that's what the hardcore players have been trying to do already, a group of players that developer One More Level is actively making the game for.

Ghostrunner launches on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this month on October 27. There's actually less than a week to go now until Ghostrunner is finally available on all four platforms.
