Sony Pictures Virtual Reality has announced the arrival of Ghostbusters VR to PSVR 2, the virtual reality platform under development from Sony, and revealed the Ghostbusters VR Academy.
The new location-based virtual reality game developed by Hologate, Ghostbusters VR Academy will allow players to participate in Ghostbuster training and experience a flying version of the Ecto-1 in a high-speed race to see who is the fastest.
Once the training part is completed, teams of four can tie up a proton beam and go on missions where they are tasked with catching some infested ghosts. The Ghostbusters VR Academy will be playable in 400 Hologate locations around the world by the end of 2022.
Ghostbusters VR – announced in April during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase – aims to create an authentic Ghostbusters experience and can be played alone or in a team of up to three friends. It has its own campaign, as well as access to a lot of equipment based on the tools used in the Ghostbusters franchise.
Ghostbusters is currently experiencing a renaissance as the latest film in the series, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, did well at the box office last year. A new animated series of Ghostbusters is being developed at Netflix and on Friday the 13th, developer Illfonic is working on an asymmetric multiplayer game called Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed.
If that’s not enough content for you, there’s also a 1:1 scale replica of the Ghostbusters Proton Pack to be released next year that looks original enough to be used as evidence in a court case that certainly won’t be interrupted by ghosts who have been sentenced to an electric chair by a judge using hammer.
