The new Ghostbusters video game leads the launch of several new titles on Microsoft’s Xbox One console today.
The new Ghostbusters video game is a kind of sequel to the new movie that’s in cinemas this week but with all-new characters and some new locations. It features a multiplayer mode, additional story content, and some additional classic Ghostbusters DLC.
Here’s the official game description: Have you and your friends been experiencing paranormal activity? Grab your Proton Pack and join the Ghostbusters as you explore Manhattan, blasting ghosts, and trapping those runaway ghouls.
Thrilling Multiplayer Experience: Play alongside your friends as the Ghostbusters in the 2-4 player local co-op campaign! Terrifying Ghost Trapping: Battle new and classic Ghostbusters characters, including Slimer, Gertrude Eldridge, Sparky and many more!
Also out today is Song Of The Deep, an action-adventure title set in an underwater setting. Here’s the description: Song of the Deep is a metroidvania-style action-adventure game following a young girl’s quest into the unknown to find her missing father. Combining discovery, skill, and suspense with an unforgettable narrative, this underwater journey will challenge players to explore, experiment, and skillfully navigate a vast ocean landscape.
Super Mutant Alien Assault is and old school platformer with modern game mechanics and multiplayer. Here’s the official game description: Dance with death through randomised rooms to clear your space freighter of irradiated aliens in a brutal arcade platformer shooter stuffed to the brim with unlockable weapons, explosives, special abilities and defense moves.
Intense and brutal action – rapid fire levels give you no rest as hordes of enemies arrive, hell-bent on your destruction. Clear the objective quickly and be sure to kill each enemy before it has the chance to mutate into a bigger, nastier version of itself. Take a tiny breather and then it’s on to the next room.
The fourth game out today on Xbox One is, Anarcute, a cute action and adventure title with an expansive level design. Here’s the description: Anarcute is an adorably cute riot game with catchy art direction and unique crowd-beat’em all gameplay!
These are dark times. A group of evil corporations has taken over the world’s major cities. They’ve taken over the media, brainwashed the police and are now shamelessly running citizens’ lives from the security of their skyscrapers.
It is time to act! Take control of the revolution to confront the terrible Brainwash Patrol who are dominating the world! United we stand!
In Anarcute you’re not controlling one single character but a whole crowd instead! The bigger the crowd, the more powerful it gets. Wake up your fellow rioters throughout the cities and increase the scale of the revolt to unleash devastating abilities!
