Ghostbusters is a third-person action role-playing game featuring single-player and local couch co-op multiplayer for up to four players. Taking place after the events of the film, it stars a new cast of rookie recruits who must explore Manhattan’s most haunted locations to rid them of the paranormal pests infesting the city. There are four uniquely powered heroes to choose from, and each character can be upgraded with new gear and abilities throughout the adventure.
Ghostbusters is expected to arrive on the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam on July 12 for $49.99. A new mobile game – Ghostbusters: Slime City – is also expected to release that week on select iOS, Android and Kindle smartphones and tablets, just in time for the film’s debut in cinemas on July 15.
Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world! The film is produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, based on the film Ghostbusters, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and directed by Ivan Reitman.
