This Fall will finally see the release of the next Ghostbusters film Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Fans who have been waiting to see it before its delay last year can satisfy their craving by playing Ghostbusters Remastered or by playing Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters. As a DLC pack for Planet Coaster: Console Edition, Ghostbusters is described by developer Frontier Development as “the ultimate love letter to the original film.” Here is an excerpt from a press release regarding the DLC:
Players can enthral guests with an assortment of new blueprints, a multitude of building materials, and a brand new flat ride and coaster. These are RollerGhoster, a twisting, turning, Slimer-themed kiddie coaster; and The Ghostbusters Experience, an interactive tracked ride where guests bust ghosts and score points as they ride around in the ECTO-1. Players can even take a ride themselves and fire Proton Packs to take down the colourful spirits and spectres in first-person.”
That’s not the only DLC that’s coming to the game. The Studios Pack will also bring additional content to the game.
A press release reveals the following about the pack:
The Studios Pack contains over 90 new blueprints, hundreds of new scenery items and construction pieces, and three incredible new rides. These are Big Screen Tour, a bus-based ride bringing park guests face-to-face with silver screen spectacles; Re-Motion, a simulator-style tracked ride in which an adjustable robotic arm tilts riders in all directions; and Horror Heights, a chilling drop tower dark ride.”
This is great news for console players. The Ghostbusters actually launched back in 2019 on PC before the console version existed. The Studios Pack launched in 2018. Now console players are getting the chance to experience both at the same time. Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters will cost $14.99 while the Studios Pack will cost $7.99. Both DLC packs will be released on April 29 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
