Fresh off of the disappointing outing that was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Activision is back with another co-op title in Ghostbusters to prey on our nostalgia.
Ghostbusters is out as of today, and features with it a third-person action RPG for up to four players. Let’s hope that all your fellow ghost busting friends are local though, as co-op is couch online – nothing online. The plot is this, “Taking place after the events of the film, players command a squad of rookie Ghostbusters through Manhattan’s most haunted environments, discovering hidden collectibles and ridding the city of rogue spirits.”
The game features four different characters to choose from, each with their off class distinction and abilities. The four characters are newly crafted, and have no connection to any of the film series’ crew. As of yet, there isn’t a single review on Metacritic.com. Typically this isn’t the best of signs for a video game, as if they developers and publishers were truly eager for critical reception they would have sent review copies out long ago. This doesn’t appear to be the case for Ghostbusters, but I guess time will soon tell for sure.
The game is available at a slightly discounted fare of $50 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can check out the new trailer below to get a feel for how the new Ghostbusters entry plays.
