This isn't the first time Ernie Hudson has lent his talents to the Ghostbusters gaming universe, as he appeared in the fan-favorite Ghostbusters: The Video Game (2009) and more recently, in this year's asymmetrical multiplayer game Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed (2022).

Whether or not he will appear in the upcoming virtual reality game in some shape or form, though, remains to be seen. Either way, Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord looks like a solid Ghostbusters experience, which finally allows players to don the proton pack and do the ghost-busting themselves.
