Saber Interactive has announced Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered,
an HD re-release of the acclaimed action-adventure game featuring the original
cast of Columbia Pictures’ classic films. Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Remastered delivers a unique story from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis that
captures the supernatural comedic fun and fright fans love from the franchise,
which celebrates the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year.
As the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew, you’ll team up with your favorite
characters from the films, reunited by the voices of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray
and Ernie Hudson as Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore, alongside Annie
Potts, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Atherton and Max von Sydow. Manhattan is
overrun once more by ghosts, demons and other paranormal creatures unleashed by
a mysterious force, and only the Ghostbusters can drive this evil back to
whatever dimension it crawled from and save the Big Apple.
Hunt, fight and trap a variety of new and familiar ghouls and phantasms, all
remastered in HD resolution. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered equips you
with cool gadgets and upgradeable weapons to play with in huge boss fights and
destructible environments. Scan and analyze targets with the P.K.E. Meter and
Paragoggles, then strap on your Proton Pack to wear ghosts down with the blast
stream before wrangling them with the capture stream.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is expected to launch later this year on
the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and
Windows PC via the Epic Games store. For more information, visit
