IGN continues to maintain its symbiotic position as kings of info related to the Ghostbusters video game – this time they’ve posted a new preview and five new screenshots.
There are some nice details on upgrading your equipment, the types of achievements/trophies you can earn, but best of all are the details on multiplayer play, which sees players working together, yet competing to score the best (basically, who’s Ghostbuster of the Year. Nyuk)
And oh yeah… you can play as the original four;
What’s interesting about these modes is that they provide you with the opportunity to play as both the single-player star known only as the rookie and the four original Ghostbusters. Also cool — or at least sounds like it could be cool — are the six possible job types you’ll face in a multiplayer game. Survival pits you against a “paranormal onslaught;” Containment is all about capturing every single ghost out there; Destruction charges you with destroying a bunch of ghost-spawning artifacts; you’ll need to protect Egon’s devices in Protection; Thief wants you to stop ghosts from stealing artifacts and Slime Dunk asks you to “dunk the most slimers,” which I’m assuming means slamming them into the ghost traps. Helping you tackle these jobs are six power-ups such as the Ghost Shrinker and Ethereal Shield.
IGN Wii also posted their hands-on and 5 new pics for the sub-next-gen version of the game.
Big ups to Justin, Mark, Lila, et al for the heads up.
