Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed's 4v1 Multiplayer Ghoul-Zapping is Coming to Xbox in October

Friday the 13th: The Game developer IllFonic has announced that Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be releasing this October, bringing another asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer experience to consoles and PC.

In Spirits Unleashed, you'll form a team of four Ghostbusters to take on hordes of Ghosts haunting a variety of maps, using your PKE Meter to track them down, before deploying a Particle Thrower to wrangle and then trap the malevolent supernatural creature. One player controls the Ghost, roaming stages like the Museum, an abandoned Prison, and “other spooky locations”.

Between matches, you can explore the Ghostbusters' Firehouse HQ, where you can assemble for a mission with friends, via online matchmaking, or with AI bots online or offline in solo mode. You can personalise your Ghostbuster's gear, engage in target practice, and visit Ray's Occult Books to tinker with other customisation options.

The Ghost, meanwhile, can also frighten civilians, possess objects to raise the ‘Global Haunt’ percentage to regain ghost power and cause mass hysteria, use slime to stun Ghostbusters, or use moveable rifts to wrongfoot your foes. You can even summon minions to keep the Ghostbusters occupied while you escape.

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on 18th October, with pre-orders available now, offering early access to Slimer, a Custom Particle Thrower and Proton Pack, and special clothing colourways as digital bonuses.

  • Who you gonna call?
  • He-Man!
  • He probably has a newer phone than me.
  • Ditch the the 4v1, make it 4 player coop and I'll buy it.
  • I was excited when I first saw this in coming soon on the Xbox store, then I saw 4v1 and all enthusiasm evaporated out the window.
