Gear up with the latest Ghostbustin’ gadgets from remote turrets to ghost decoys. Take on a variety of missions, like collecting dark PKE or closing interdimensional portals. You’ll need to work together to solve puzzles, trap ghosts, and stop the March of the Malevolent.

While the game is designed with co-op in mind, it can be played solo if players wish to. You can play with up to three other players and take on the brand new villain and his minions as they invade San Francisco.

These effects will occur when ghosts fly either towards you or through you, and thanks to the headset’s haptic feedback, you’ll even be able to feel them.

Available editions for Rise of the Ghost Lord include the standard base game, which starts at $35, and the Full Containment edition, which costs $55.
