The game is developed in partnership with VR developer and publisher nDreams (Far Cry VR: Dive into Insanity) and published by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality.
Players or going west this time around, putting on the boilersuits of a new cast of characters at the start of their journey running their own ghost-busting headquarters out of San Francisco.
“Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord pits you and your proton pack against the newest, biggest villain inside a totally immersive VR Ghostbusters universe. We’re excited to give fans this first look,” said Jake Zim, Senior Vice President, Virtual Reality, at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Along the way, players will interact with real landmarks from across the city, such as the Golden Gate Bridge — as shown in today’s art release.
There’s seemingly no solo tax here. Players can go it alone or team with up to three friends in co-op to stop the powerful Ghost Lord and his band of malevolent ghosts from causing chaos throughout the city.
“We love collaborating with the Sony Pictures Virtual Reality team to bring the world of Ghostbusters into VR through a new story that will delight Ghostbusters fans, both old and new,” says Tomas Gillo, chief development officer of nDreams.
