There was a drought of good Ghostbusters merch for a long time after the early ’90s. Sure we got the ‘Extreme Ghostbusters,’ but that onslaught of cool stuff just ground to a halt.
Many of us would mod ‘DOOM’ or ‘Duke Nukem’ to make them into off-brand ‘Ghostbusters’ games for a while. Sometimes it turned out cool. Yes, it was a long hard road until the official video game came out in 2009.
Since then, we’ve seen all sorts of cool GB stuff hit the digital space. Pinball games, mobile games, VR games. Now, even roller coaster sims are getting in on the paranormal action. Well, PC owners of ‘Planet Coaster’ have already had the honor of playing the game’s ‘Ghostbusters’ DLC. Console fans have had to wait. That is until the 29th of April! Thanks to EGM for the tip-off!
From Planet Coaster’s official website:
Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters adds a brand new rollercoaster, an interactive Ghostbusters™ dark ride and a fully voiced narrative campaign with Dan Aykroyd and William Atherton!
Is your theme park plagued by paranormal phenomena? Have you seen manifestations appear on your roller coasters? Are you looking for a way to protect your guests from ghostly apparitions? Then look no further; the Ghostbusters are here to help! Under the guidance of Dr. Raymond “Ray” Stantz and the Ghostbusters, free your attractions from ghosts and restore fun and excitement to your entertainment parks.
Planet Coaster is proud to introduce its most ambitious content pack, Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters. The pack boasts a brand new, story-driven scenario and employs the talents of Dan Aykroyd and William Atherton, who voice their roles as iconic Ghostbusters’ co-founder, Raymond Stantz, and Special Agent Walter Peck, from the 1984 classic.
The price of the console expansion is $14.99. If you already have the PC version of ‘Planet Coaster,’ then the DLC can be picked up Steam or the Frontier Store.
