According to previous IllFonic titles – such as Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds – and in collaboration with Columbia Pictures and Ghost Corps, players will be able to control either one of four Ghostbusters or a singular terrifying specter.
By joining the newest Ghostbuster in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed – and inheriting the position of original member Winston Zeddemore (repeated by Ernie Hudson) – you’ll be armed with a Proton Pack, PKE Meter and Ghost Trap.
Players must work together to keep the citizens calm and prevent the environment from becoming too haunted. Track down the ghost, use the particle launcher to hold it in place, and close the trap at the right time.
However, thanks to Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd) and Tobin’s Spirit Guide, you can embody the ghosts. Among several ghosts to choose from – each with their own unique abilities – haunt a location, scare people, and escape Scott by flying or using teleport between rifts.
Own items to sneak around a little easier with Ghostbusters, or resort to slime and summoning ghouls to save yourself in one-on-one battle.
Between matches, players can customize their Ghostbuster or Ghost at the Firehouse, upgrade their gear and abilities, and can practice using the Particle Launcher and its modifications. Get your missions from Winston before heading out to your next game.

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed aims to launch Q4 2022 on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The game will also support cross-platform multiplayer, AI allies to fill games, and single-player offline play as Ghostbuster or Ghost.

If you are someone who loves movies or asymmetrical multiplayer games, this is for you.
Additional information that may appear in the trailer includes map locations. These appear to be Alcatraz (a prison-turned-museum, or something inspired by it), a hotel (judging by the piano, bar, and luggage cart), and the Metropolitan Museum of Nature & Science.
Besides Hudson and Aykroyd, other Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed voice actors have been revealed. Rahul Kohli (Midnight Mass, Scarecrow as Harley Quinn) announced his involvement on Twitter.
“I can finally reveal that I’m secretly working on a new project, #GhostbustersSpiritsUnleashed! I can’t tell you who I’m voicing,” Kouhi teased“That’s for another time, but you *can* watch the first trailer right now!”
Another voice actor announced for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is journalist and video game presenter Greg Miller, announcing his involvement but not his role through Twitter and two podcasts.
Miller tweeted: “There is a new Ghostbusters video game. I played it, I dug it, and I am a voice of it!
While neither has confirmed their roles, it seems unlikely that they’ll just voice a few soundbites of otherwise hollow playable characters. Writer red against blue James Willems and his wife and writer of Armageddon Elysee Willems announced that they would be writing for the game, suggesting that a larger narrative would unfold.
