New Ghostbusters Game Won’t Feature Reboot Film Cast

Activision has unveiled a new Ghostbusters game, billed as a tie-in to the up-coming all-female movie reboot, directed by Paul Feig, and yet it doesn’t feature any of the cast members from said film. Rather than focus on the new cast of characters, played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, the game – confusingly titled just Ghostbusters – introduces a new team of two guys and two girls.

The game is a third-person action RPG, featuring Diablo-esque four-player co-op, and is set for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. An additional mobile game, Ghostbusters: Slime City, is being released on iOS and Android.

“This July, Ghostbusters returns to screens both big and small,” the Activision announcement reads. “That’s right, in addition to the new film from Sony Pictures, this July we’re introducing two all-new Ghostbusters adventures for consoles and mobile devices — Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters: Slime City, respectively. Both games will feature new casts of rookies as they fight rogue sprits while the now-famous Ghostbusters are off stopping high-profile poltergeists.”

“On PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, there’s Ghostbusters, a third-person action role-playing game with up to four-player local co-op,” the Activision blog adds. “Each player can level up their character’s gear and abilities by battling ghosts, completing objectives, or discovering hidden collectibles. Players will have four heroes to choose from, each with their own unique personality and play style that benefit the overall team.”

Ghostbusters is set for release on the same day as the film reboot, 15th July.
