Atari’s told MTV that Terminal Reality’s upcoming Ghostbusters title is essentially a casual take on Gears of War.

“We’re trying to make this pretty mainstream as far as a third-person shooter goes,” said senior producer Garrett Moehring.

“Because that’s really what it is for the most part, it’s an action-shooter — Gears of War lite, in a way. But it’s not as complex.”

Moehring explained that sincere efforts have been made to increase the game’s pick-up-and-playability.

“Since we’ve gotten the game, we’ve made whatever strides we can to make it more accessible,” he added.

“Controllers, layout, and what the actual player felt like when they were moving the character around was one of the hallmarks of where our focus was.”

It’s out for every platform in the world on June 19.
