Have you ever wanted to catch ghosts with your friends as a Ghostbuster? If yes, then developer Illfonic is giving you that chance! At an invite-only press event, the studio announced that it is working on Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, an asymmetrical multiplayer ghostbusting game that will release in Q4 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
As part of the announcement, an announcement trailer, gameplay trailers, screenshots, and official information were also shown! As for the gameplay, in one of them the player appears as a ghost hunter, and in the other as a ghost.
Equip the Proton Pod, grab the Ghost Trap and watch the PKE’s loyal meter as a Ghostbuster in a team of four brave men chasing creepy ghosts terrorizing public places. Work together to find the ghost, blast it with particle launcher to tether the vile enemy in place, and close the trap at the right time! Keep the citizens calm and trap the Ghost before there are too many ghosts around.
Play as the Ghost, scaring unsuspecting citizens in various locations. You are not afraid of any Ghostbuster, thanks to the ability to fly and teleport between the faults. Get hold of the items lying in each room to sneak past the wandering ghost hunters and scare the passers-by. If that doesn’t work, slime and summoning ghoul minions will help you. Complete each map to the end as one of several Ghosts with different abilities.
Prepare for every match in the legendary firehouse by customizing your Ghostbuster or Wraith, upgrading your equipment and abilities, and practicing your Particle Launcher and its various modifications. Speak with Winston Zeddemore (voiced by Ernie Hudson) to receive missions before entering the battlefield. Meet new and old friends like Dan Aykroyd’s Ray Stantz, who is willing to share his wisdom with you in Ray’s occult books.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed doesn’t have a release date yet, but it should scare players in Q4 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
