Sierra Spring Break 08: No online co-op for main Ghostbusters campaign

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 28 April 2008 12:59 GMT

Speaking to videogaming247 at the Sierra Spring Break 08 in Mallorca last week, Terminal Reality studio director John O’Keefe said that there will be no online co-op enabled in the main Ghostbusters campaign, but that the various side-missions will include this feature.

“If you remember, the comedy and scares were really important to the feel of the movie and we really wanted to replicate that,” he said. “We want you to feel like you’re a Ghostbuster, and so co-op with your friends playing the other Ghostbusters we wouldn’t be able to control that comedic timing and delivery of lines.

“Even though co-op would be an interesting aspect we made a conscious decision because we wanted to capture the Ghostbusters experience, but there is an online component of the game that is cooperative but it’s nothing to do with the story.”

As far as online play goes, you can compete against one another to see who can catch the most ghosts, or play together and deal with onslaughts of ghoulies in separate sections.

Ghostbusters releases in October.
