New Gauntlet-style Ghostbusters game coming in 2011

Atari and Sony have recently announced plans for a new Ghostbusters game scheduled to release in 2011 for Xbox LIVE, PSN, and the PC. Sub-titled ‘Sanctum of Slime’ the four-player action game will have you blasting ghosts with your proton pack.

According to Game Hunters, you can expect “gigantic bosses that require teamwork and the entirety of the ghostbusting arsenal: the proton stream, plasma inductor and the fermion shock.” You’ll also get to drive the Ecto-4WD. Early screenshots suggest that one player while drive while other players clear the streets by firing off proton streams.

Unfortunately, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime will not feature any of the cast from the original films. Also, there’s no news as to whether or not crossing the streams would be bad.

    What happened to Gauntlet Legends? I used to love that shit but forgot all about it. This could be pretty awesome.

    Looks nice but not too into Ghostbusters games. You tricked me in here by saying New Gauntlet. Hey! I'm dyslexic im not going to read the whole thing at times. Anyway I would prefer a new Gaunlet. "Green Archer needs food, because they are hungry!"

    @JADENkOTOR- They ran it into the ground with a string of sequels that were pretty much the exact same game.
