There’s a new Ghostbusters film on the way and so that means there just has to be a game to go alongside it. Thank god for Activision!
Announced today, Activision and Sony Pictures have confirmed that a couple of new Ghostbusters games will be arriving this summer. And whilst a mobile title is all well and good, it’s the confirmation of a new Xbox One game that really gets us excited! Taking place after the events of the new movie, both Ghostbusters games introduce new casts of rookies keeping watch over the station while the now-famous Ghostbusters tour the country stopping high-profile poltergeists. When paranormal phenomena unleash apparitions across New York City, these new squads of recruits must don their proton packs and wrestle those rogue spirits back to the afterlife!
The main console title will be a co-operative third person action role-player, in which players will get to take charge of the Ghostbusters, leveling up their character’s gear and abilites by taking on objectives, defeating ghosts (obviously) and discovering Manhattan’s most haunted haunts. You’ll be able to pick from four heroes, each with their own unique personality and play style as the team becomes one. Just remember…no I in Team!
Ghostbusters is currently slated for a 15th July 2016 release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
If you’d prefer to check out the mobile title, then Ghostbusters: Slime City is the one for you. Become a Ghostbuster and save New York City from a new wave of threat as you team up with other players in asynchronous co-op, collecting powerful ghosts in your quest to rise to the top of the leaderboards. Players can also craft their own proton packs from any number of combinations of components, as well as upgrade their own headquarters and complete jobs around the city for new weapons and rewards. Slim City will launch in July on iOS, Android and Kindle.
We will of course bring you more details as and when we can. We ain’t afraid of no ghosts!
