Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is the latest Ghostbusters game on the way, and this time it is tapping into the 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer trend. As one might imagine, four people will be Ghostbusters, while one person will be a ghost. The goal for each side will be to outdo the other, with both sides being able to upgrade their skills and equipment.
As this game is tapping into the Ghostbusters series, it will feature a number of cameos and references. You start out in the Firehouse before each mission. Both Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd reprise their roles as Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz. The Ecto-1 car is there, and equipment and uniforms reference the original movies.
Here’s the first trailer. It goes over both story elements and gameplay. Also, while this is ideally a five player game, there will be optional AI companions to help fill matches if someone wants to play alone.
Illfonic is known for its 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer games as of late. Especially ones tied to existing movie series. It created both Predator: Hunting Grounds for the PS4 and PC and Friday the 13th: The Game for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC at the end of 2022.
