With previous credits including Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds, Studio IllFonic clearly has a knack for licensed asymmetric multiplayer. However, the next IP the studio is tackling is quite different from the franchises above, while still being a popular series. Get ready to have them ghostbusters Topic stuck in your head again – IllFonic announced Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed at GDC 2022.
It’s easy to figure out the premise yourself: four players will be in the shoes of Ghostbusters, and a fifth player will take on the role of the ghost. The ghost’s goal is to haunt the map, which will have wandering civilians that are fairly easy to spook. The Ghostbusters’ role is obviously to capture the ghost.
IllFonic advertises a level of customization that players can take advantage of – players can create their own Ghostbuster characters and choose from a variety of cosmetic options, but they can also choose from a variety of upgrades for their gear, which include recognizable tools like the Proton Pack and the PKE meter. Meanwhile, there are various Ghost characters to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and strategies.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is set after the events of Ghostbusters: Life After Death, the 2021 film that saw the return of the original Ghostbusters crew. Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd return as Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stanz, respectively, leading the new Ghostbusters recruits; The game by IllFonic will also have its own original supporting cast. Spirits Unleashed is coming sometime in the last quarter of 2022 and will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with full crossplay support – get it now before whatever jokes about it happens to traverse the streams banal.
