Ghostbusters the franchise is very near and dear to many fans and the series keeps on reviving itself with newer movies and games, though we try to forget the 2016 reboot ever existed. The recent Afterlife movie has sparked the interest back in this franchise again and the gaming world is out to get its share of the pie.
Announced in a recent GDC 2022, the developers behind Friday The 13th and Predator: Hunting Grounds, Illfonic, is making a Ghostbuster asymmetrical multiplayer game called Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed. Hearing this fans are wondering whether this game will be playable over crossplay across platforms?
Do Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Support Crossplay?
Ghostbuster: Spirits Unleashed features full crossplay between consoles and the PC. The consoles include the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. As an asymmetrical 4 vs 1 multiplayer game, each player can play on their respective platform of choice.
For people who are unable to fully populate their squad then you can do so with AI-controlled characters. Though this is not under the heading of crossplay, this feature is a welcomed addition for players with bad internet and no friends.
In a similar way they have handled the previous Friday the 13th, the license appears to be used quite effectively and not just a cash grab. The main team of this Ghostbuster ensemble is a bunch of customizable characters, though Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson reprise their iconic roles as Ray Stanz and Winston Zeddemore, helping the players through their ghostbusting journey. Interestingly, it appears to follow franchise cannon, with the developers stating that it takes place after Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
