Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is the 4v1 hunt or haunt supernaturally-charged video game from the asymmetrical multiplayer experts at IllFonic. Embrace your inner Ghostbuster (or ghost) by putting on a Proton Pack, grabbing a Ghost Trap, and monitoring the trusty PKE Meter with four other players. Work together to find the Ghost, blast them with streams from the Particle Thrower to tether the slimy foe in place, and shut the trap at the perfect moment! Keep citizens calm and corral the Ghost before the environment gets too haunted.
Or, you can play as a Ghost, scaring unsuspecting citizens at various locations. Crafting an experience that takes into account the large history of the franchise, you can fly and teleport between rifts. Possess objects lying around each room to sneak by roaming Ghostbusters and frighten passersby. If that doesn’t work, sliming and summoning ghoulish minions will. Haunt each map to completion as one of the multiple Ghosts with different abilities.
“Ghostbusters is one of the most beloved IPs in the world, so we are pulling out all the stops to make something special and accessible to this diverse fanbase,” said Charles Brungardt, CEO, IllFonic. “If you’re someone who loves the movies or asymmetrical multiplayer games, this was made for you.”
Each match starts in the iconic Firehouse where you can prepare by customizing your Ghostbuster or Ghost, upgrading equipment and abilities, and getting some target practice in using the Particle Thrower as well as its different modifications. Talk with Winston Zeddemore, voiced by Ernie Hudson, and get missions before going out into the field. Meet some new and old friends like Dan Aykroyd’s Ray Stantz, ready to hand down some busting wisdom at Ray’s Occult Books.
Most exciting though is that the game also has cross-platform multiplayer, anyone on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, and/or Xbox Series X|S or One. AI companions can help fill games or enable solo Ghostbusters or a solo Ghost to play offline.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will launch on Epic Games Store for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
