A brand new Ghostbusters augmented reality game is in the making. “Ghostbusters World” should be available on Android and iOS devices in 2018. The games was announced today as part of Google’s ARCore announcement.
Ghostbusters World was born as part of a collaboration between Sony Pictures Entertainment Consumer Products, Ghost Corps and publisher FourThirtyThree Inc. The game will use latest features AR has to offer and the developers are promising skill-based gameplay. There was a short announcement trailer released as well, but nothing more was unveiled at this point.
Ghostbusters World gameplay will enable players to battle and capture hundreds of ghosts from all dimensions of the franchise, including the films, TV shows, comic books, theme parks, and video games. The game will also feature new and unique ghosts to the franchise. “The Ghostbusters Universe is rich in characters and Ghostbusters World is the perfect medium to get to know these characters in a whole new dimension,” said Ivan Reitman, Principal, Ghost Corps, and Director & Producer of the original Ghostbusters movie.
“Ghostbusters is a legacy brand and we are excited to work with 4:33 to expand the Ghostbusters Universe into an AR mobile game. Ghostbusters is the perfect brand and best content to utilize AR technology,” said Jamie Stevens, Executive Vice President Worldwide Consumer Products, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
That’s about everything we know so far. More info should be available at the developers conference next month.
