With the release of Ghostbusters (2016) Activision will be launching not one, but two different Ghostbusters video games! Or adventures.
Scott Lowe, Activision’s Communications Manager wrote on the company’s blog:
This July, Ghostbusters returns to screens both big and small. That’s right, in addition to the new film from Sony Pictures, this July we’re introducing two all-new Ghostbusters adventures for consoles and mobile devices.—Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters: Slime City, respectively. Both games will feature new casts of rookies as they fight rogue sprits while the now-famous Ghostbusters are off stopping high-profile poltergeists.
On PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, there’s Ghostbusters, a third-person action role-playing game with up to four-player local co-op. Each player can level up their character’s gear and abilities by battling ghosts, completing objectives, or discovering hidden collectibles. Players will have four heroes to choose from, each with their own unique personality and play style that benefit the overall team.
For Ghostbusting on the go, we’re introducing Ghostbusters: Slime City. Launching for select iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, and Kindle devices, Ghostbusters: Slime City lets players collect powerful ghosts and rise through the leaderboards. As you progress, you’ll collect components to craft your own proton packs, upgrade your own headquarters, and complete jobs around the city for new weapons and rewards. Players can also band together to save New York City through asynchronous co-op or compete in special PVP events for bigger rewards and bragging rights.
Ghostbusters for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is expected to launch on July 12—just a few short days before the debut of the new film on July 15. Ghostbusters: Slime City is also expected to launch in July.
