The game places you in the role of a new, fifth Ghostbuster who is thrust into the job during paranormal events which occur two years after the events of the second film. Being the rookie, you will be tasked with carrying experimental equipment that Egon and Co. deem too dangerous for everyone to use so you will often be using equipment at least one level ahead of the rest of the team. That team aspect is taken a bit further than simply testing equipment. Players will be able to help downed teammates as well as having themselves saved by the rest of the Ghostbusters when they are downed by the onslaught of paranormal bad guys. This means no being a hero. Sticking with your team and working together is the key.
