It’s been some time since we’ve last heard anything regarding IllFonic’s upcoming 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer game Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed.
The developer on Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds confirms that the Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will arrive on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 18, 2022.
The game allows four players to team up as Ghostbusters and track down Ghosts currently haunting several locations. If you’ve ever played Ghostbusters: The Video Game, you’ll be familiar with the P.K.E Meter to snuff out any supernatural entities and even temporarily disable them from escaping. Furthermore, there are hidden rifts hidden in each level serving as spawn points for the Ghosts to appear. You’ll need to seek these out and destroy them then wrangle the Ghost into the trap with your Particle Throwers.
For the player playing as the Ghost, your job is to roam the halls in places like the Museum or the Prison and frighten the locales. You can scare civilians and possess objects to raise the Global Haunt percentage and regain ghostly powers. You can even use slime to stun other players and move between the rifts to be unexpected.
“The reaction from fans of Ghostbusters has blown us away,” said Charles Brungardt, CEO, IllFonic. “Putting a date on and opening up preorders for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed feels like an out-of-body experience, and we cannot wait for everyone to feel the same sensation on Tuesday, October 18th.”
