The rumor has been circulating for several months and it finally became a reality today. Indeed, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed has just been made official. But this new game will probably not please everyone.
Last December, an actor of the famous saga spilled the beans by declaring that a new Ghostbusters video game was in preparation. We now have confirmation of it since this title has been announced this week by Illfonic. The American studio recently launched Predator: Hunting Grounds and Arcadegeddon on Sony consoles and PC.
This Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is an asymmetric 4 vs 1 multiplayer title. The player will be able to take control of one of the four Ghostbusters whose objective will be to catch the ghost roaming the map. A fifth player will have the opportunity to control this famous ghost who can teleport, possess objects and even summon ghostly allies. The appearance of all of them will be customizable and their equipment can be upgraded.
It is important to note that playing offline will also be possible. In this case, bots will replace the missing players. Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be released at the end of the year on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This last version will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.
