Updated on
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed releases for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on October 18, 2022.

As kids, the original Ghostbusters movie made us all wish we could fight ghosts and ghouls for a living. That’s why, back in March, when Illfonic announced Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, the little kid inside of us jumped for joy. And now there’s even more reason to be excited: the game’s release date, which has been set for October 18, 2022.

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is releasing on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Of course, it’s also coming to PC, however, it will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Alongside the announcement of the game’s release date, pre-orders have opened up and can be purchased across all console stores. As an added bonus, those who preorder before October 18 will gain access to Slimer, one of the game’s playable ghost characters. You’ll also receive a Custom Particle Thrower, Proton Pack, and Unique Clothing Colorways for your character.


Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Dev Stream

To go with the game’s release date, and pre-order access, eager fans can catch the developer live stream that’s taking place today, August 18th, at 11:15 AM PT. Hosted by Illfonic live on their Twitch channel, the stream will give eager fans a look at gameplay, game features, and more.

But, like other Illfonic games like Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Ground, Ghostbusters Spirit’s Unleashed will be a group multiplayer game that pits four players as the “Ghostbusters” against one player as one of the ghostly entities featured in the films. Other notable items from the film, such as Particle Throwers and traps for ghosts, will also be included in the game. But keep an eye an eye out as we get closer to launch, as more information will undoubtedly emerge.
