Who ya gonna call? Probably an ambulance when you trip over your glass-top coffee table while playing this new Ghostbusters VR game for the Meta Quest 2 (Oculus). A trailer for the upcoming virtual reality game just dropped on the movie’s official YouTube channel. It could finally deliver that online co-op Ghostbusters experience we’ve all been waiting for.
Ghostbusters VR takes us out of NYC and all the way to the West Coast. Yep, we’re starting our own bustin’ business in San Francisco! Does this mean we’ll be dealing with poo ghosts? That’s what I call farts – “Poo ghosts.”
The game is being developed by nDreams, the company behind a FarCry VR experience and a PSVR shooter called Fracked. I’ve not played the developer’s titles. So, I can’t tell you what we can expect regarding quality. However, since the trailer looks not to be in-game footage, I’d approach this thing with cautioned optimism. There’s very little else to go on, but the game’s listing over at the Oculus store does give us some insight:
Under 1GB? Ok… No release date. Thankfully it will allow for playing sitting down. I’ve tried a few FPS games in VR and found that being in an office chair or my work stool kept me from getting as dizzy.
Start your Ghostbusters HQ in a new city, San Francisco, and solve a deep mystery across a new chapter in the Ghostbusters universe. Track, blast, and trap ghosts in gripping encounters by wielding iconic equipment. Go it alone, or as a team with up to three friends, in an extensive and engrossing co-op campaign. Continue the Ghostbusters’ legacy, protect the city from fiendish ghosts, and experience all the humor and frights from the beloved franchise.
