Bethesda clarified in a follow-up tweet that all the above specs aim for 30 fps. This isn’t locked down, however – the frame rate isn’t capped on PC and gamers will be able to tweak the settings for higher performance as they see fit. You’ll also need a Steam or Epic Store account and a broadband internet connection because everything is online today. Specific preload and unlock times will be announced at Ghostwire: Tokyo Twitter account.

If you’re still not sure about Ghostwire: Tokyo (which, for the record, I think is pretty cool), maybe our review might help: it’s not the Evil Within-style horror experience it originally appeared to be, but if you’re after “a neon Japanese adventure game where you get cool spiritual powers and pet a bunch of dogs”, it might just be the thing. that you are looking for.
