Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a 4v1 hunt or haunt game from the asymmetrical multiplayer experts at IllFonic. Spirits Unleashed came out in the latter part of last year, and when the crew at Gaming Nexus played together, there was a lot to enjoy. I have to say, though, I have not been keeping up with Spirits Unleashed. But I have to gie them credit, they are putting out new DLC every quarter since the game’s initial release. And on top of that the DLC is free. The game’s second DLC is set to release on April 20.
Some of the DLC Highlights include:
New Map, The Courthouse - Strange activity is reported at the courthouse, which has made it challenging to conduct legal proceedings. Decades of dark practices and paranormal contact have made the courthouse a hotbed for ghost activity. Halls, offices, and courtrooms all connect to form a uniquely entwined gameplay space.
New Ghost Type - Possessor Ghost Type + 3 Variants - Scuttle, Hellion, and the famous Terror Sentinel provide the Possessor Ghost type with a unique playstyle. Use unique abilities and the Ultimate Possession to take over Civilians and even Busters!
New AI type: Drudges - From the depths of the Ghost Realm, come the drudges to help! Summoned by Tobin, these helpful little entities help the ghost haunt the building and scare humans. Busters would be wise to focus on eliminating these spectral aides, and the Ghost can use the rifts to spawn more!
New Minion Ability: Trap Minions – A singular minion that the ghost plants hidden on the ground or inside of objects will spring to un-life when its stasis field is tripped and latch onto the unsuspecting victim!
Extreme Ghostbusters cosmetics, gear shells, and other customizations - Buster cosmetics and gear shells that harken back to the Extreme Ghostbusters cartoon series that are unlockable through various Side Hustles and Research Contracts. The team also has new footwear, skirts, kilt bottoms, and several makeup styles to choose from. Shirt logos can now be used on appropriate tops.
General Improvements - Gear Upgrade Menu Overhaul, Ghost/Buster Bot Improvements, bug fixes, balance, QOL fixes, etc. to further improve the overall experience!
IllFonic plans to release similar DLC Drops each quarter of 2023 for free, in addition to the continued Quality of Life patches Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed has frequently received.
