‘Ghostbusters VR’ takes the supernatural series to San Francisco

Prepare to bust ghosts in virtual reality

Ghostbusters VR is a single-player and co-op virtual reality take on the film franchise coming to the Meta Quest 2 some time within the next year.

Revealed during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase yesterday (April 20), Ghostbusters VR will be a “new chapter in the Ghostbusters universe”.

According to the game’s new Oculus listing, Ghostbusters VR can be played alone or with up to three friends in co-op across the campaign. Developed by virtual reality game studio nDreams, the title will include “all the humour and frights from the beloved franchise”.

“If you’re looking to create a big, engaging multiplayer VR game that has to be experienced to be believed, who you gonna call? nDreams,” said Jake Zim, senior vice president of Virtual Reality, Sony Pictures Entertainment, who will be publishing the game.

“Virtual reality on Meta Quest 2 truly allows us to live out our dream of being a Ghostbuster. The world, the ghosts and the iconic tools and equipment deliver the ultimate VR adventure. And most importantly, busting ghosts with your friends is fun!”
