New info and images of Ghostbusters: The Video Game

EDIT: There was a typo when we originally posted this. The game actually takes place in 1991, not 2001.IGN has posted a new article with new information on the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game.

Some new info we pulled from the article:

  • You play as a new recruit to the Ghostbusters unit.
  • The game takes place in 1991, two years after the events of Ghostbusters 2.
  • A Gozarin Exhibit is due to open a few days after you start the game. It will probably lead to some events during the game.
  • Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver in the movies) won’t be in the game.
  • An all-new female lead is being introduced and will make a big impact on the game’s storyline.
  • Some of the ghosts that will be returning are: Gozer, Slimer, Stay Puft, the Gray Lady Librarian, and the executed brothers.
  • Your fellow Ghostbusters will help out with captures of ghosts.
  • You’ll get a ‘damage done’ total at the end of every mission.
  • It will run at 1080p.
  • We will be adding the new images to our Ghostbusters Section soon.
