If you're familiar with Friday the 13th: The Game or Predator: Hunting Grounds, then you pretty much already know what to expect from IllFonic's freshly announced Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed. It's going to be a four vs one multiplayer game where a team of ghostbusters needs to track down and capture a powerful and malicious ghost controlled by the fifth player.

In order to do so the ghostbusters will need to carefully comb through locations like the prison, hotel or museum with their PKE meters to locate the ghost, after which they'll need to subdue it through the use of classic tools like the proton pack or ghost trap. The dastardly ghost on the other hand will be able to summon minions, possess objects and phase through walls, all in an effort to dodge the ghostbusters and eventually force them to retreat by making the location too haunted.

What all of this looks like in action, that you can check out through the recently posted announcement trailer. Have a peek:

No exact release date has been given just yet, but you can expect to see Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed arrive at some point in 2022 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox.

Once more information becomes available, ideally alongside a lengthier gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can keep an eye on any future teasers over at the official website.
