It’s finally Halloween, time for kids to run around their neighbourhood trick-a-treating while all the adults not keeping an eye on the sugar intake sit down to a scary movie – or possibly a virtual reality (VR) experience. If you are out and about then you may want to get in on the spooky fun with Ghostbusters World which recently launched this month. The augmented reality (AR) title is holding a special event just for today, where ghostly bosses become more prevalent.
Called the Big Boss Breakout, the one-day event will have Big bosses spawning more frequently than ever before on Halloween. No matter where you are in the world you’ll be able to come across the odd spectre or two, with it being useful to team up with a few mates when those larger corporeal beings start appearing like the Stay Puft marshmallow man.
If you’ve not tried Ghostbusters World yet it’s very similar to The Walking Dead: Our World or Pokemon Go, where you need to get up and out the house to explore your neighbourhood for ghosts, capturing as many as possible. Once you’ve done so then you can start testing out the other game modes available.
There are single-player AR battles and multiplayer role-playing game (RPG) elements, players need to find hundreds of different ghosts, all with their own special attributes. These can then be used in the Story and PvP modes, which involve turn-based tactical combat. Ghosts can be levelled up in the single-player section before taking into multiplayer, helping ensure those wins.
The PvP mode is in the Ghost Dimension which also features Gozer’s Tower and the Daily Haunt for more gameplay options.
Ghostbusters World is free to download for iOS and Android devices which are AR compatible. For further updates on the videogame from Ghost Corps and 4:33 Inc, keep reading VRFocus.
