Cooperative ghost-hunting game Phasmophobia has recently become one of the most-played and most-watched games on Steam and Twitch. Last week’s update for Phasmophobia added more cunning ghosts to the game, but this week’s latest patch is focused on dozens of fixes as well as new Halloween additions. Developer Kinetic Games hasn’t revealed yet what the Halloween content actually is, but players have reported seeing Jack-o’-lanterns, a scarecrow, and a new type of crawling ghost.
Plenty of small issues have been fixed within Phasmophobia, such as disappearing ghost orbs, loading level timeouts, and dead players being able to use the walkie talkie. New changes to the game include ghost-writing now counting as photographic evidence, upgraded server code to fix most voice chat issues, and removing the Australian server from the region selection options as those players will instead be matched up according to their best ping results.
Ghost events will also be more forgiving on your dwindling sanity resource and the EMF Reader will also generate less noise. You can read the full patch notes below:
Phasmophobia has been a horror game success story so far, thanks to its novel use of direction-and-location-based audio to create a more immersive experience which also led to it earning a spot in our list of the best Halloween games you can play right now.
While you’re able to communicate with friends and ghosts to terrifying effect, it has also had a recent problem with hackers who have infiltrated the game and have begun terrorizing streamers.
