Ghost in the Shell: First Assault Online rolls out the big guns ahead of launch

Jul 28 // Christian Chiok
As a Ghost, you’ll be utilizing the Therm-optic Camo, making you invisible to the Cyborgs. It’s really useful since it saved my skin when I was close to the Cyborgs although they could still detect me with their radar. You also have around 20 bullets to your disposal but unfortunately you can’t melee the Cyborg. As for the Cyborg, you’ll have six bullets to kill a Ghost, after that you’ll have to rely on melee and stealth attacks. You will have radar at your disposal which allows you to see if a Ghost is nearby. I had a blast playing this mode, especially a full room with other 15 more players, though it makes things harder but still an enjoyable experience. For my own sake, I personally enjoyed playing four against four since it was the perfect balance between not making it too hectic or too boring.  As the Ghost, it allowed me to stay hidden well but it also gave the opponent a fair chance to find me as there were many times we crossed paths. I can fairly say that both my teammates and opponents had the same experience. While it was fun, playing the game with eight players made the experience too hectic, thus enjoying the role of a Ghost a bit less. While playing through Ghost Assault I also had the chance to try out the new maps, Headquarters, which is currently in prototype, and the Underground base, a permanent map featuring the changes from the community feedback. Personally I never played the Underground Base map in its prototype stage (or don’t recall the map from my first time playing it) but I thought that map was too small for Ghost Assault and I didn’t have the opportunity to play it in any other mode. I really liked Headquaters in Ghost Assault however since it offered nice hiding spots and had different paths that made avoiding the enemy easier. I didn’t have the opportunity to try this map in any other mode however. Lastly, there’s Kuro, the newest operative who will be available once Open Beta launches this week. Kuro specializes in incapacitating enemies with short-range pulses using focused EMP devices. Considering we can’t use their skills in Ghost Assault, we played a few Team Deatmatch matches, though not in the new maps. I really had fun using Kuro and using his skill net me and my teammates a lot of kills since a few times multiple enemies were within the range, making them sitting ducks for a few seconds. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience in this open beta and might go back to it when it officially releases. Ghost Assault is definitely what I enjoyed the most. The game is now available for free to everyone via Steam and the Nexon Launcher. You can check out Ghost Assault in action below: [embed]35172:5750:0[/embed]
