As of today, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can try Ghostwire: Tokyo as part of their subscription. Tango Gameworks created Ghostwire: Tokyo, which was published by Bethesda. Even though it was released after Microsoft completed its acquisition of Bethesda, Ghostwire: Tokyo was a timed PlayStation 5 console exclusive for the first year of its existence.
Before Microsoft acquired Bethesda, the publisher of the Elder Scrolls and Fallout signed some exclusivity agreements with PlayStation. These exclusivity agreements were honored even after the acquisition was completed, which meant that Bethesda-published games like Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo were only available on PlayStation consoles for a full year after their release.
Ghostwire: Tokyo’s PS5 exclusivity window has just ended, and it’s now available on Xbox via Xbox Game Pass.
One of the primary advantages of having an Xbox Game Pass subscription is the ability to play first-party games on the day they are released. While Ghostwire: Tokyo was previously released for the PlayStation 5, this is its first appearance on Xbox, and it could still be considered a day-one game. The catch is that Ghostwire: Tokyo is a next-generation-only game, so those who are still on Xbox One and have yet to upgrade will need to purchase an Xbox Series X or S console to play it.
Ghostwire: Tokyo received mostly positive reviews upon its initial release last year, and those playing on Xbox should have a similar experience. The Xbox version of Ghostwire: Tokyo, on the other hand, will receive the Spider’s Thread update, which will include new locations, quests, enemies, skills, a roguelike mode, a Photo Mode, and much more. This update is available on all platforms, so PlayStation gamers who have already played Ghostwire: Tokyo may want to revisit it.
It’s worth noting that Ghostwire: Tokyo is available on both PS Plus Extra and Xbox Game Pass. This should allow PlayStation and Xbox gamers to easily access the game and the new content added with the latest update.
