According to a Nexon press event held in Japan, the PC game will be out within the first half of 2014. The MMO shooter will allow players a choice between two factions: the cyber terrorists or Section 9, and character customization that determines how mechanized an avatar can be.

Players can also hack terminals and objects to change up the battlefield and even help teammates during PvE and PvP matches. Narrative-wise, the game will use elements from the anime Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society.

The game is developed by Neople, the same team behind online MMO Dungeon Fighter Online. There are currently no details on whether the game will be localized or published outside of Japan.
