Developer IllFonic has announced Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, a new asymmetrical multiplayer title in the Ghostbusters universe.

Developed by the team behind Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will see players teaming up with fellow new recruits as they set out to trap ghosts in locations like museums, prisons, hotels, and more. You'll have to use PKE Meters, Proton Packs, and Ghost Traps in order to find the ghosts and trap them before the haunting gets out of hand.

Of course, you can also choose to play as the Ghost instead, using your abilities to hide from the ‘busters, sneak up on them and surprise them, scare them, and even slime them. Do this enough to the Ghostbuster team and civilians, and you’ll win the round.

With a trailer featuring Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz from the original Ghostbuster films, this is almost certainly the new Ghostbusters game that Ernie Hudson was referring to late last year.

“Ghostbusters is one of the most beloved IPs in the world, so we are pulling out all the stops to make something special and accessible to this diverse fanbase,” said IllFonic CEO Charles Brungardt. “If you’re someone who loves the movies or asymmetrical multiplayer games, this was made for you.”

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is launching on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC in Q4 2022. You can check out the announcement trailer down below.

  • Yes a new Ghostbusters game...oh wait it's a 4v1 MP game that kinda looks like a launch X1/PS4 title? Yeah nah yeah, I'm out.
  • 4v1 can be fun but it's not really what I want from a new GB game.
  • Way to judge a book by its cover.
    I'm looking forward to this next project by the people that brought is Friday the 13th and Predator

    “If you’re someone who loves the movies or asymmetrical multiplayer games, this was made for you.”

    It does seem pretty obvious what we're getting here, Blade.
  • So is Illfonic the next Tell Tale Games in that they're just a one trick pony, using licensed franchises?

    They did a 4v1 of Friday the 13th, a 4v1 of Predator, another 4v1 of Ghostbusters, and they're also working on a 4v1 of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
  • Seems that way.
