Ghostbusters (1984) Come to LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed!
Collect and Upgrade the Ghostbusters Crew in a Limited-Time, First-Ever Crossover Event in LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed
Paris, July 23, 2020 – Gameloft, leader in the development and publishing of games, the LEGO Group, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are thrilled to announce a new adventure coming to LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed starring the original characters from Ghostbusters (1984), available now on App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft Store! Starting today and running for four weeks, players of all levels can unlock Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore, and Slimer in a brand-new story-driven event. Additionally, the Ecto-1 set will be given away to all players who complete the tutorial. This is the very first licensed addition to LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed, and is the largest content update so far.
There’s something bizarre happening in Piptown, currently covered in slime and spooky figures run amok, including a new Green Ghost enemy, with a gnarly portal brought about by dark magic from another source. Upon further investigation, Slimer is eating Piptown out of house and home – literally – and chases our heroes who uncover a devious ploy by Garmadon to resurrect an ethereal army!
It’s up to the Ghostbusters to save the day!
The Ghostbusters team is a powerful balanced group, and is good against pirate and Ninjago foes, and is especially strong against spooky foes too! Make sure to collect your crew to take on a variety of intimidating foes!
“Ever since we announced LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed, players have been asking if we would be introducing any characters from outside the LEGO Universe”, Guilherme Lachaut, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Gameloft. “The Ghostbusters were the perfect set to choose as our first licensed addition. They strike a delightful balance of humor and adventure and fit perfectly in the world we’ve created.”
LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is the first turn-based Role-Playing Game (RPG) from the LEGO Group and allows players to collect and playfully battle with over 60 characters from over 40 years of LEGO minifigure history. Bringing together minifigures old and new, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed gives LEGO fans a new way to play with the minifigures that they know and love.
