Epic Games Offers Ghostbusters to Players For Free

If you use the Epic Games launcher, you can snag the remastered version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game for free until November 5, 2020.

Long time fans of the Ghostbusters film franchise are sure to enjoy their entry in the video game world. Ghostbusters: The Video Game allows players to “strap on your proton pack once again and join the Ghostbusters on the adventure with the voice and likeness of the original crew as you battle to save New York!” Released in June, 2019 Ghostbusters: The Video Game was initially playable on Windows, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, and Nintendo DS, however, the 2019 remaster brings the game to current generation consoles such as Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.

While fans of the films may enjoy the game, it seems as though most people are in agreement that the game is…subpar.

“Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered gets some visual improvements, but not much else. Strong nostalgia hooks will delight fans, but won’t bring in any new audience.” 6.5/10

“Ghostbusters was a great tie-in back in 2009 but this remaster doesn’t really make for a vastly improved experience.” 6/10

Again, if you like the movies, then you might as well pick the game up for free on the Epic Games Store while you have the chance, but otherwise it seems like you’re better off riding the Ecto-1 as far away from it as possible. If you do want to grab it, you have until November 5 to claim your free copy from the Epic Games Store.
