So while the new Ghostbusters film is releasing this summer with its all-female cast, publisher Activision has stepped forward to confirm the movie will now be getting its own video game.

The report comes from USA Today who says that the game will be a four-player role-playing game that takes place after the events portrayed in the new movie, so you’ll probably want to see the movie before you play the game. Check out the trailer below.



Despite the movie’s cast being all female, the game will let players choose which gender they would like to play. Players take control of rookies who are called upon to save New York City while the big, bad professionals are away taking care of the major ghosties.

But this game isn’t the only Ghostbusters game releasing this year, because there’s another one hot on the heels of the video game based on the movie and it’s going to come to mobile platforms in July.

While I don’t quite understand the need for an all-female cast in the new Ghostbusters reboot, I do like the idea of a multiplayer game based on the movie. Ghostbusters is a movie series I grew up with as a kid and it’s a big part of many peoples’ childhoods and I’ve seen many games that have tried to tackle the content of the movies, but nothing quite stuck. Hopefully this new game coming from Activision will breathe life into the games again.

The Ghostbusters game based on the movie will be releasing on PS4, Xbox One and PC this summer on July 12, right alongside the movie’s release on July 15. If you would like more information, you can visit the Ghostbusters website.
