Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord VR Game Set to Launch on October 26th
During PlayStation’s State of Play event, developer nDreams made an exciting announcement for all the Ghostbusters fans out there. The highly anticipated virtual reality (VR) game, Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord, is finally set to launch on October 26th.
This news comes as a relief for gamers who have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to step into the shoes of a ghostbuster and immerse themselves in the beloved franchise. With the release date just around the corner, players can expect an exciting and engaging gaming experience.
The game, priced at $55, offers players the chance to pre-order the ‘FULL CONTAINMENT EDITION.’ Those who pre-order on Quest or PSVR 2 will receive not only the full game but also six months of upcoming DLC and bonus content.
In a new trailer released by nDreams, we get a glimpse of the gameplay and the four-player co-op feature. The trailer showcases some of the franchise’s iconic elements, including proton packs, ghost traps, P.K.E. meters, and the legendary Ecto-1.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ghostbusters’ first VR title, here’s how the studio describes it:
“Strap on your proton pack and step into the world of Ghostbusters in immersive virtual reality. Run your Ghostbusters HQ in a new city, San Francisco, and unravel a rich mystery in a new chapter for the Ghostbusters universe. Wield iconic equipment as you track, blast, and trap ghosts in gripping encounters across an extensive and engrossing campaign. Go it alone, or team up with up to three friends in co-op to defeat a ghastly new threat – the Ghost Lord. Continue the Ghostbusters’ legacy, protect the city from fiendish ghosts, and experience all the humor and frights from the beloved franchise.”
Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord is set to launch on Quest 2 and PSVR 2 this fall. While the game’s first trailer was captured on PC, there is a possibility of a release on SteamVR as well, although nDreams has not confirmed this.
In the meantime, eager fans can wishlist the game on PSVR 2 and Quest 2 platforms for a chance to be among the first to experience the ghostbusting action.
This VR game promises to be a thrilling addition to the Ghostbusters universe and is sure to provide a memorable gaming experience. So mark your calendars for October 26th and get ready to don your proton packs and save the city from menacing spirits in Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord.
