As part of Epic's holiday giveaway, Ghostrunner for Windows is available as a free download today through the Epic Games Store. Ghostrunner is also available through Steam, and for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S consoles.

Published by 505 Games, the single-player title unfolds through the first-person perspective of amnesiac cyber-warrior Jack the Ghostrunner. A cataclysm known as ‘The Burst’ has decimated the earth's population and wreaked havoc on the natural environment. Jack must utilize melee combat and parkour skills to climb Dharma Tower, the vast skyscraper harboring the remains of humanity.

In keeping with the sleek, futuristic setting of the game, synthwave tracks for the score are by Copenhagen-based music producer Daniel Deluxe, also known as Daniel Alexandrovich. Born in Moscow, the composer was influenced by the aesthetic of science fiction cyberpunk and the synthwave music genre, incorporating a hint of French electro in his original compositions.

The 20-track game soundtrack is available for purchase through Bandcamp and Steam, while streaming is available through Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, and YouTube. Co-developed by Danish company Slipgate Ironworks and Polish studio One More Level.
