Following the recent release of its Early Access program for First Assault, publisher Nexon America and Neople have released the first major content drop, which introduces an all-new character to the “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex” universe! Along with the new content, Early Access packs are discounted on Steam for up to 40% for a limited time.
Created in cooperation with Production I.G. and Kodansha Ltd., the license-holders of “The Ghost in the Shell,” Maven is a playable operative joining the iconic Section 9, an elite force of cybernetically enhanced combat operatives responsible for protecting society and fighting cyberterrorists on the neon-drenched streets of a futuristic Japan. Also included in this update is a new map “Port,” an early version of the Ghost Screen stat tracking feature, a host of new weapons to unlock and more. Throughout the Early Access period, Neople will consistently be adding and testing new content to gather player feedback.
The newest Section 9 operative, Maven, is an expert in guerilla warfare and topography, stemming from her time in the South American military. Maven first came to Chief Aramaki’s attention during an operation in which she single-handedly held off an insurgent attack after her entire squad was killed. Afterward, she joined Section 9, where she has proven to be both resourceful and deadly. However, her troubled past is never far away; she has vowed to destroy the rebel group that ravaged her country and killed her family.
Maven’s cyberskill is a therm-optic barrier capable of obscuring sight. At Tier 2 of this ability, the size of the barrier increases. However, barriers can be destroyed by enemies.
