A new game has been revealed that will be released later this year. Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a four-on-one multiplayer title from IllFonic, the studio behind and † If you are familiar with those two games or the premise of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will feel familiar.
Four players will team up as the Ghostbusters. You use the PKE gauge to detect a ghost and defeat them with the Proton Pack, Particle Thrower, and Ghost Trap. You need to subdue the ghosts before they make a museum, prison, hotel, or other public location too spooky.
On the other hand, as you might have guessed, the fifth player will control the mind. You can fly and teleport between chasms. The mind can possess objects and summon minions. They are also able to slime and stun the Ghostbusters so they can continue their terrifying ways.
In the Ghostbusters fire station, you can customize your ghost or Ghostbuster, upgrade their skills and equipment, and practice firing the particle launcher. Two of the original Ghostbusters reprise their roles. You get missions from Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) and wisdom from Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) in his occult bookshop.
If you don’t feel like playing online (or don’t have a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership to do so), you can play as a solo ghost or Ghostbuster, with AI taking on the other roles. For everyone else, there’s cross-platform multiplayer support on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is expected to arrive at the end of 2022.
