Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a multiplayer action game based on the license of the iconic movie series. It was developed by Illfonic studio, known for such projects as Friday the 13th: The Game or Predator: Hunting Grounds.

Plot

The action of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is set after the events presented in the film Ghostbusters: Afterlife from 2021. Ghostbusters have resumed their activities and the new team is under the supervision of two famous predecessors; they are advised by Winston Zeddemore (played by Ernie Hudson) and Ray Stantz (played by Dan Aykroyd).

Game mechanics

In Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, a team of four Ghostbusters hunt for... well, ghosts. Taking on the role of one of them, we observe the action from a first-person perspective (FPP). To catch the unwanted visitor from the afterlife, we have to not only work closely together, but also make use of futuristic weapons and gadgets at our disposal. We are talking about a detector that allows us to detect an invisible enemy, a proton blaster that allows us to attack a ghost with a beam of energy, and a trap in which we can catch the enemy (provided that we manage to close it at the right moment).

When we take control as a ghost, our primary goal is to scare as many people as possible and not get trapped. The ghosts, presented from a third-person perspective (TPP), can fly, teleport between gaps in the map (which the Ghostbusters can close), and possess various objects. In addition, as one of the slimy creatures, we can use slime and summon helpers, as well as use a special vision mode, thanks to which we can see the Ghostbusters through walls. All this consumes ectoplasm, which regenerates automatically; standing still, however, is not the best idea, because then we are an easy target for opponents.

In the breaks between missions we go to the firehouse, where we can customize both our Ghostbusters (by equipping them with new equipment and skills and upgrading the ones we already have) and the ghost.

Game modes
