Ghost in the Shell Free to Play shooter coming to Steam next month

The Class-based Free-to-Play shooter based on the ever popular Ghost in the Shell series, titled Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex – First Assault Online, will be coming to Steam and Nexon’s launcher in December according to the game’s Steam Page.

The game seems to take away the philosophical thriller tone of the original anime series in favour for a multiplayer only squad shooter in which players take control of Section 9, the cybernetic anti-terrorism group, against a terrorist cell that is equipped with similar abilities.

To be honest, a Free-to-Play shooter isn’t what I expected for a Ghost in the Shell game, but the series does lend itself to some cool gadgets and abilities that could make a decent shooter. We like to be hopeful.
