Free-to-play shooter and Ghost in the Shell fans will be treated to a brand new game combining the two, at some point this year.

A free-to-play Ghost in the Shell shooter is set to head over to western shores some time this year, as announced by Korean publishers Nexon.

The shooter will hit the US, UK, Europe, Latin America, and Australia in 2015, as confirmed by Nexon America in the tweet below.

Nexon's most recent western title is Dirty Bomb, a team-based shooter that's currently in closed beta over on Steam.

Ghost in the Shell isn't yet released in Korea, but it's due to launch there first at some point in 2015. The game is based on the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime.

The game is said to feature cyborg customisation with over 5,000 variations on layout, along with players being able to share skills with nearby allies in PVE and PVP settings.

A trailer from last year is below, and it looks pretty darn good if you ask me. Check it out!
