Activision have announced a pair of new Ghostbusters games coming this year, one for mobile, and one for consoles and PC. With a new Ghostbusters movie hitting the big screen this July, will we be going Ghostbuster crazy, or will these games be a money-spinner?
Let’s start with the console and PC version. Simply titled ‘Ghostbusters’, it is a third-person action role-playing game positively charged for thrilling couch co-op with up to four players locally. As rookie Ghostbusters, players can level up their characters’ gear and abilities by tackling objectives, defeating ghastly creatures and discovering hidden collectibles in Manhattan’s most haunted haunts. There are four heroes to choose from, and each has his or her own unique personality and play style, bringing special strengths to support the team.
The mobile game, Ghostbusters: Slime City, lets players be a Ghostbuster and save New York City from a new wave of threats. Team up with other players in asynchronous co-op, and collect powerful ghosts 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.
Ghostbusters is said to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on July 12th, and on mobile in July at an unspecified date. Will bustin’ make us feel good this summer after seeing the movie? Time will tell.
