The developers behind Friday the 13th and Predator: Hunting Grounds are about to give another movie franchise a shot.
Today, the company confirmed a release date for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, which will arrive on current and previous-gen consoles on October 18th – just in time for Halloween!
In addition, pre-orders are opening up today, providing access to a special Thrower and Proton Pack, as well as the one and only Slimer.
“Form a team with up to three other Ghostbusters to track down Ghosts haunting a number of locales,” the company noted. “Sniff out paranormal activity with the P.K.E. Meter and charge it to unleash a short-range pulse disabling Ghost movement. Unveil hidden rifts acting as the Ghost’s spawn points and teleportation portals, and destroy them. Use the powerful Particle Throwers to capture the Ghost, deploy a trap, and wrangle them into it before they escape!”
The game will feature “stages like the Museum, an abandoned Prison, and other spooky locations,” along with a new one that’ll be revealed at Gamescom later this month. “Personalize your Ghostbuster’s equipment at the workbench and test out the changes with some target practice in the neighboring alley,” the overview continues. “Visit Ray’s Occult Books to enter the spectral realm and customize the Ghost’s loadout, skin, and various otherworldly options.”
It sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun, so we’ll see what’s in store in just a few weeks!
