Originally announced in 2018 (see “Men in Black and Ghostbusters Team Up”), Ecto-Terrestrial Invasion is a semi-cooperative board game in which players pair up members of the Ghostbusters and the Men in Black and compete to “bust” the most “ecto-terrestrials,” which have invaded the world after their ship crashes into the Ghostbusters’ iconic firehouse.
The game will feature a story-driven campaign for players to confront, written by Ghostbusters comic writer Erik Burnham. The campaign has a branching storyline that develops based on decisions the players make at various points during the campaign.
