Ghostbusters fans should remember the notable Ghostbusters: The Video Game which originally released in 2009. Since then, Saber Interactive went on to develop a remaster exclusively for the Epic Games Store. The remaster includes visual enhancements that are all geared towards 4K target resolutions, meaning Sony Pictures clearly wants this one to hold up for years to come. With another new film also in the works, it makes sense that Sony wants to keep the franchise popping. On that note, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered will expand to the Steam store on November 17.
The game itself should be a treat of nostalgia for any fan of the series. It features the original characters, cast, and even the writers. The result is a game that feels like an extension of the films. It’s not all praise though for this game. While there are a lot of appreciable details and themes going on, it does seem to fall short as a video game. You won’t find anything all that original about this game, while the mechanics and AI may grow tiring to you after the initial thrills wear off. That’s not to say that the game is terrible, but you might just leave it be after a single playthrough.
Of course, a single playthrough and some decent nostalgia may be all you’re looking for with all of the next-gen games coming out soon. If you’ve kept up with our Epic Games Store free games features, you might have even grabbed this title for free the other week. Still, there are those that refuse to use the Epic Games Store despite its many perks and that’s fine.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is sure to sell more copies on Steam. Those who spend the money there will feel the satisfaction of knowing their cash is going towards more noble pursuits like sending gnomes into space, rather than market domination per Epic Games. Steam pricing is yet to be listed, but we can assume Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered will go for the same $24.99 USD as is the case on EGS.
