New Ghostbusters game coming to iOS & Android

Some interesting news coming from MacWorld 2012, with appadvice.com getting the full scoop:

The new game from XMG that we are most excited about is their new Ghostbusters title. This game has an augmented reality battle system, immersing you in real time battle against ghosts and ghouls. And I know you aren’t afraid of no ghost!

Equip yourself with proton guns and other equipment, and you can capture paranormal menaces like a true Ghostbuster. There are location-based features that enable players to interact with their surroundings and catch site-specific ghosts, like library or subway ghosts. There is also a social aspect that encourages players to team up with friends and other Ghostbusters. You can gain experience points (XP) to upgrade your ghost fighting equipment so that you can rid the world of these menacing specters forever.

Ghostbusters will be released for both iOS and Android in July (or sooner) of this year. It will be a freemium title.

  • It looks like I’ll have something to look forward to for my new iPod Touch.

    The article says this game will be a freemium title. Since I never heard of that work before – though I recognize the two words that it’s a combination of… and I like the “free” part – I looked up the definition:

    “Freemium is a business model that works by offering a product or service free of charge (typically digital offerings such as software, content, games, web services or other) while charging a premium for advanced features, functionality, or related products and services.”

    I wonder how much of the Ghostbusters game you’ll actually be able to play for free, or if you’ll be forced to pay for things in order to actually progress in it.
