Ghostbusters Remaster will be Released in Plenty of Time for Halloween
A few weeks back, it was announced that 2019’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game would be getting a remaster courtesy of the folks at Saber Interactive, and now we know when the game will be haunting shelves this October. You can check out a new snippet of footage featuring the game’s big Stay Puft Marshmallow Man battle, below.
For those unfamiliar with the 2009 Ghostbusters game, many fans essentially consider it an unofficial Ghostbusters 3, seeing as it features a story partially written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and the voices of entire original cast, including Aykroyd, Ramis, Ernie Hudson, and Bill Murray. Here’s an official rundown for the remaster:
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered delivers a unique story from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis that captures the supernatural comedic fun and fright fans love from the franchise. As the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew, you’ll team up with your favorite characters from the films, reunited by the voices of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson as Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore, alongside Annie Potts, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Atherton and Max von Sydow. Manhattan is overrun once more by ghosts, demons and other paranormal creatures unleashed by a mysterious force, and only the Ghostbusters can drive this evil back to whatever dimension it crawled from and save the Big Apple.
Hunt, fight and trap a variety of new and familiar ghouls and phantasms, all remastered in HD resolution. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered equips you with cool gadgets and upgradeable weapons to play with in huge boss fights and destructible environments. Scan and analyze targets with the P.K.E. Meter and Paragoggles, then strap on your Proton Pack to wear ghosts down with the blast stream before wrangling them with the capture stream.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered floats onto PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch on October 4. The PC version will be Epic Games Store exclusive.
