Destruction has summarised Game Informer’s preview of the upcoming Ghostbusters games from Vivendi (Activision Blizzard, whatever), including this:
- There are two, semi-separate ghostbusting projects at this time, one for a Wii/PS2 release, the other, grander effort being saved for the 360, PS3 and PC.
- The big project is being developed by Terminal Reality, and has realistic graphics running on a proprietary engine. The focus is on the single-player campaign mode, and details about the multiplayer are still TBA. It doesn’t look good for we co-op PS360 enthusiasts, though.
- The secondary release on Wii and PS2, developed by Red Fly, is a slightly dumbed-down version that will focus on multiplayer, and has cartoony graphics instead of the main project’s realism.
There’s also news of a gun that fires double-ended “snot” laces for sticking across passageways and the like. The mind boggles. No release date on any of this yet, aside from “autumn 2008”.
