Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR) has revealed the name of their hotly anticipated VR game based on the Ghostbusters franchise, GHOSTBUSTERS: RISE OF THE GHOST LORD, coming to Meta Quest 2 and PlayStation VR2 in 2023. Brand-new art revealed today gives players a glimpse at the adventure that awaits them next year.
GHOSTBUSTERS: RISE OF THE GHOST LORD, developed by award-winning VR developer and publisher nDreams and published by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality, was first announced at the Meta Quest Game showcase in April 2022. This exciting new chapter in the world of Ghostbusters will see players step into the boilersuits of a new cast of characters at the start of their journey running their own ghost-busting headquarters out of San Francisco.
Legendary locations in the city such as the Golden Gate Bridge will be brought to life across an extensive and engrossing campaign where players can go solo or team with up to three friends in co-op to stop the powerful Ghost Lord and his band of malevolent ghosts from causing chaos throughout the city. With the ability to wield and upgrade iconic Ghostbusters equipment and customize elements of their characters’ look, the game lets players truly live the life of a Ghostbuster with all of the fun and frights that come with it.
“Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord pits you and your proton pack against the newest, biggest villain inside a totally immersive VR Ghostbusters universe. We’re excited to give fans this first look,” said Jake Zim, Senior Vice President, Virtual Reality, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
“We love collaborating with the Sony Pictures Virtual Reality team to bring the world of Ghostbusters into VR through a new story that will delight Ghostbusters fans, both old and new,” said Tomas Gillo, Chief Development Officer, nDreams.
