Originally planned to be shut down on January 19th, Sony has surprisingly extended the life of Gravity Rush 2’s online features by six months. According to the post made late last week on the game’s Japanese portal, the online leaderboards and challenges, “Photo Ghost” functionality, and the ability to leave treasure hints for other players will now be shut down on July 19th, 2018 at 1am EDT. You can see a screenshot of the in-game message delivered to players above, courtesy of USgamer.
When the original announcement was made the team increased the drop rate of “Dusty Tokens”, an in-game currency that is needed to unlock new costumes and can only be obtained through the online features. The updated post goes on to confirm that the drop rate will stay cranked up through the new July 19th deadline to help more players unlock the exclusive content.
If you’ve been meaning to get back to the game for a while or still haven’t picked it up you’ve got a short but much-appreciated reprieve to catch up! I’ve removed the original calendar entry and added a new one to the Watch List calendar for the updated cutoff.
