Some Future 2 crossovers make sense. Mass Impact? Certain, it is a pure match. The Witcher? Hey, a few of Geralt’s trend works properly with the Area Knight aesthetic.  Murderer’s Creed, okay, that one was a little bit of a stretch however Hunters and cloaks, I suppose. However Ghostbusters? I’ve to confess I wrestle to see where that one got here from, however yup, it is taking place.

The Future 2 – Ghostbusters mashup was revealed as we speak on the Future Twitter account:

(Picture credit score: Bungie)

So what are we ? Courtesy of Sony Photos, “the gathering of in-game gadgets impressed by Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire will embody a Slimer Guardian Ghost, a brand new Sparrow impressed by Garraka, and an Ecto-1-themed Ship.” Garraka, for these not within the know (as I used to be till 30 seconds in the past) is the villain within the subsequent Ghostbusters movie, Frozen Empire.

Anybody who springs for both the set or particular person items can even be capable of snag the “Bungie Rewards Slimer Ghost Shell papercraft masks” at no cost. Sorry, I haven’t got an image of that.

Notably absent is any form of new armor, which is often the centerpiece of those crossovers. That is sort of disappointing, as a result of after years of strapping on more and more advanced (and weird-looking) fits of high-tech armor, I feel it might be enjoyable to zip up a easy set of coveralls earlier than leaping into motion in opposition to humanity’s deadliest enemies. Perhaps not thematically acceptable, however frankly I feel that ship has sailed. There additionally is not any form of ghostly shader, which could have been tempting, particularly as gamers have been begging for a Taken one since ceaselessly.

Pricing on this set hasn’t been revealed at this level, however we do have a launch date. The bustin’ will start on March 19, three days forward of the theatrical debut of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. Which additionally explains why this otherwise-inexplicable crossover is going on: Sony is distributing the movie, and Sony owns Bungie. As my expensive previous grandpa used to say, simply because it does not make sense doesn’t suggest there’s not a motive.
