The game’s official description reads:

Here’s the trailer, which at the very least features the voices of Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd:

It looks…pretty basic, especially since this is its debut trailer. It’s being made by Illfonic, who specialise in mid-tier releases like Friday the 13th and Predator Hunting Grounds, so it’ll also probably be a cheaper game.

I have some concerns! For starters, Ghostbusters is a movie that was very much a product of its time (1984) and place (New York City), and pretty much every attempt to carry on with the franchise in other places and/or times since has been a disappointment, whether it’s movies or a succession of bad video games (the wonderful cartoon series being the lone exception).

Next: Illfonic’s track record. Hunting Grounds, Friday the 13th and Dead Alliance all sucked. Then there’s the fact asynchronous multiplayer games always sound better on paper than they do to people who only want to play as one of the sides (though this will support solo and offline play at least). Then there’s the fact that on PC, which will surely be its biggest platform, it’s going to launch as an Epic Store exclusive (it’s also coming to both PlayStations and both Xbox consoles).
