Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed
The release date for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is set again and we can start the preorder process to become a Ghostbusters in October
It is almost time to make the call with Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed launching on October 18th here for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. This is the latest 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer title from IllFonic that will let us all strap on the proton packs and head out to bust some ghosts. That or to take on the role of the ghost and make the lives of the Ghostbusters a pure hell along with the locations we are going to be able to haunt out there. With all of that said, you can now head out there and make sure you are going to be able to answer the call on that day by preordering the game. It also will give you a few fun little extras if you so choose to.
As of right now, you can head out there and preorder Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed for your selected platform. Doing so will not only get you fully ready for the game to launch out there but will also unlock a few cosmetics and a ghost right from the start. These being Slimer for the ghost, a custom particle & proton pack, and finally some clothing cosmetics to add to your match. It follows along the way that the other games from the developer have gone thus far, just with the Ghostbusters theming around it all. Although, it does feel like Slimer could be something bigger to have if the ghosts have a whole lot of different playstyles to them instead of just skins. Maybe we will get to see some of that soon with some gameplay.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, a 4v1 hunt or haunt action-packed asymmetrical multiplayer is available for pre-order, August 18, 2022, 8 a.m. PT. The latest game from IllFonic will be playable Tuesday, October 18, 2022, on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
Form a team with up to three other Ghostbusters to track down Ghosts haunting a number of locales. Sniff out paranormal activity with the P.K.E. Meter and charge it to unleash a short-range pulse disabling Ghost movement. Unveil hidden rifts acting as the Ghost’s spawn points and teleportation portals, and destroy them. Use the powerful Particle Throwers to capture the Ghost, deploy a trap, and wrangle them into it before they escape!
Meanwhile, the Ghost works alone, roaming around stages like the Museum, an abandoned Prison, and other spooky locations, including a new one to be revealed at Gamescom. Frighten civilians to scare them away. Possess objects to raise the overall Global Haunt percentage, to regain ghost power, or just cause mass hysteria. Use slime to temporarily stun Ghostbusters. Move the rifts to keep them guessing, summon minions to make an escape, and show the Ghostbusters they should be afraid of this Ghost!
Explore the Firehouse, a familiar home base filled with new and recognizable characters alike, before departing on a mission with any combo of friends, random matchmaking, and/or AI bots online or offline in solo mode. Personalize your Ghostbuster’s equipment at the workbench and test out the changes with some target practice in the neighboring alley. Visit Ray’s Occult Books to enter the spectral realm and customize the Ghost’s loadout, skin, and various otherworldly options.
Pre-orders for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed starts Thursday, August 18 on Epic Games Store for PC, PlayStation 5|4, Xbox One, and Xbox X|S. An Internet connection is required for cloud save and online play. Multiplayer functions also require a PlayStation Plus subscription and/or an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
