The upcoming multiplayer Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed has been given an October release date, just in time for the Halloween season.

Developers IllFonic have announced that Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be arriving on Oct. 18, 2022 across PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via the Epic Games Store. The studio is best known for being behind the Friday the 13th and Predator games, with Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed set to follow a similar four-vs-one style gameplay.

According to the game's description, players get the chance to play as either a Ghost or a Ghostbuster, each with their own abilities and functionalities. Ghostbusters operate in a team of four, using Ghost Traps and the Particle Thrower to take down the enemy.

The Ghost gets its own abilities, such as flying, teleportation, and the ability to possess objects and scare the opposing players.

“Ghostbusters is one of the most beloved IPs in the world, so we are pulling out all the stops to make something special and accessible to this diverse fanbase,” said Charles Brungardt, CEO, IllFonic. “If you’re someone who loves the movies or asymmetrical multiplayer games, this was made for you.”

Pre-orders for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleased are now live across all available platforms.
