Ghostbusters Spirits Unleashed - Release Date, How To Preorder, More

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is an upcoming asymmetrical action-adventure game by IllFonic, the developers of Friday the 13th: The Game.

Not a lot has been announced about the game since its reveal back in March 2022, but that has recently changed, with developers offering more news about what it will be like to play as a Ghostbuster or Ghost in the Ghostbusters universe.

Here is everything we know about Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed so far, including its gameplay, planned release date, and how to pre-order now.

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Gameplay

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed puts players into the Ghostbusters world, allowing them to take on the role of one of the Ghostbusters in a team of up to four, or take on the role of a Ghost.

The Ghostbusters' gameplay is in first-person, in an effort to make the game more immersive. The Ghosts are in third-person, allowing them to manipulate the environment and terrorize the Ghostbusters more freely.

Unlike Dead by Daylight and other popular asymmetrical 4v1 games, the goal for the Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is not to escape, but to capture the Ghosts and undo the damage and chaos they caused.

You can check out the official Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed trailer here:

The reveal trailer gives a little taste of both the game's gameplay and story, referencing the original Ghostbusters franchise with its dialogue. It's impressive in its graphics, and the gameplay looks innovative and creative; it's hard not to be excited about this upcoming game by Illfonic.
