The release date for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is set and the time for launch is approaching very fast. Here’s everything you need to know about IIIFonic’s upcoming 4vs1 asymmetrical ghost-hunting simulator- Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed.
Ghostbuster allows players to play as ghostbusters (the people who catch ghosts) or spirits (ghosts) in an asymmetrical format. Players need to trap the ghosts while ghosts have to possess things, scare people, and make frightening noises.
Ever since the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed launched, fans are hyped to play the multiplayer ghost-catching simulator. The game is finally coming for all the major platforms.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Release Date and Time
IIIFonic has confirmed that Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, the game based on the Ghostbusters media franchise, is coming on Tuesday, October 18, 2022. The release date for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed was confirmed in August 2022 after its Steam listing.
Previously, we only knew that the game was scheduled to launch in the fourth Quarter of 2022. We have a specific date to look forward to now. Coming to the time, the game will likely be available at midnight ET.

This means the game will be available sooner for certain players as compared to others. For instance, players in the NA region will be the first to jump into the haunted places and bust spirits roaming around the area.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Platforms and Cross-play Support
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store). The game will be available across all major platforms with full crossplay support.
Unfortunately, the game won’t be available on Nintendo Switch, as we previously hoped for. Other than that, players across all platforms can play the game with or against each other without any restrictions.
However, you’ll still need a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership to play the game online on the respective consoles. You can choose to play solo as either a ghost or Ghostbuster and AI bots will fill the remaining slots.
Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Editions & Prices
Ghostbusters: Unleashed will be available in two editions- Standard Edition and Collector’s Edition. The former costs $39.99 across all platforms while the latter is priced at $69.99.
When you buy the Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Collector’s Edition, you will get the following rewards:
- Advance access to ‘The Bashir Ghost’, a rare Ectoplast skin, remote trap vehicle kit, and a special P.K.E. meter.
- Tobin’s spirit guidebook replica case with display stand
However, you’ll have to pay additional dollars. Both editions of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed are available to pre-order right now. You can also unlock the following bonuses by pre-ordering the game right away:

You still have time to pre-purchase the game and claim these rewards.
