Ghost Hunter Announced
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced today Ghosthunter for the PS2. The title is an adventure game and is being developed by Cambridge studios. Ghosthunter has players assume the role of Lazarus Jones, a Detroit cop who comes across a ghost research laboratory with his partner Anna Steele. While searching the lab, the partners accidently release an assortment of spirits. The ghosts not only abduct Anna, but also combine with Lazarus, giving him the ability to see into the world of the dead. This technique will be necessary later on in the game, as he must rescue his partner.
"With Ghosthunter, SCEE Studio Cambridge has created a dark, atmospheric fantasy that will appeal to both gamers and horror fans," said Chris Deering, president, SCEE. "The game utilizes the PlayStation 2's technical capabilities to combine film-quality graphics and sound with well-developed characters and a compelling storyline, delivering a rich, cinematic experience that fully captures the essence of the action-horror genre."
No specific North American or European release date has been released.
