While we all wait patiently for Bill Murray to finally read the damned script and sign off on Ghostbusters 3, things are moving along swimmingly for Atari and their upcoming downloadable title, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime!
Atari is thrilled to introduce the new gang of Ghostbusters paranormal investigators! Even though they’re a bit inexperienced, each one has a place on the team, and they work together as a whole to bring down the bad guys in Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime releasing March 23rd for XBLA, PSN, and PC Download.
Meet the four Ghostbustin’ rookie players:
Practical and hardworking, he has no real background in the paranormal but is the workhorse leader of the team – the others know he’s always there to pick them up after a knock down or help with wrangling a frenzied ghoul. He’s also the steady hand of the team – when things go wrong, he’s the one with the plan.
An optimistic scientist with a positive outlook that keeps the team’s spirits up. There’s no ghost too big or bad that can’t be figured out and then busted. He has a slight advantage with his studies in the paranormal and makes good use of this extra knowledge to help bust the stranger entities that the team comes across.
The tough chick with a fierce determination and a penchant for wisecracks at other’s expense. Like Alan she has no paranormal training, but she is a natural Ghostbuster, always at the forefront of the battles. At times sparks can fly between her and the rest of the team, but the jokes end when there’s work to be done.
The technical genius of the group, he’s also not scared of getting his hands dirty when the ghosts try and get up close and personal. Following in Dr. Spengler’s footsteps, he’s keen to learn more about being a Ghostbuster and make his own mark unearthing more information on the spectral realm and developing his own new technologies.
With the city quaking in fear and no help in sight, who ya gonna call? Atari, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, is once again answering the call for gamers everywhere by delivering the first ever Ghostbusters digital title, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime. In conjunction with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime will be available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and Windows PC Download at Atari.com in spring 2011.
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is a four-player, ghostbusting adventure that will take players on a brand new paranormal experience. Players will suit up with their proton packs and assume the role of a rookie hired by the Ghostbusters to save New York City from a disaster of ghoulish proportions.
The action-packed gameplay progresses as players complete jobs as fearless rookies who explore a series of haunted environments that must be cleared of any ectoplasmic threats. The gripping adventure rages on as players encounter gigantic bosses that require a concentrated effort to defeat using a medley of highly destructive weapons including the Proton Stream, Plasma Inductor, and the Fermion Shock. Rookie Ghostbusters will face the dangers of the eerie world alone or with a ghostbusting team of friends both locally or online through the game’s multiplayer capability.
