Phasmophobia gets much-needed VR Overhaul for more immersive ghost-hunting

I ain’t afraid of no ghost; unless it’s in VR. Phasmophobia took the co-operative horror experience by storm when it first launched, and as Kinetic Games continually update the game, things have only got creepier for budding paranormal investigators. The latest update is perhaps one of the most needed for those who like to get up close and personal with Phasmo’s ghouls in virtual reality. On April 7, at 11am UTC, Kinetic launched the VR Overhaul update for Phasmophobia. With an entirely new VR system now in place, gameplay and ghost hunts should go much smoother for the VR enthusiasts…

Phasmophobia has added a haunted campsite and new ghosts

If Halloween is best spent doing scary things with pals, Phasmophobia is one of the best games to play this Halloween. The cooperative game sends us to investigate haunted places, trying to capture evidence of ghosts without getting murdered by them. And now it’s even more Halloween-y (well, technically Friday The 13th-y) thanks to a big new early access update, which has added a new map set in a haunted campground, new types of ghost, and new spooky weather. Great, just what I wanted in a game I’m already too scared to play. Read more

Phasmophobia’s upcoming equipment overhaul looks especially spooky

Thank goodness we’re now well past the point of me apologising for still talking about a game from last Halloween and into the part of the year where I’ll be unapologetically looking forward to this Halloween. Phasmophobia, the co-op ghost sleuthing simulation that I’ve yet to stop playing since last year, is getting a sizable update this month as spooky season creeps closer. There are even more new ghosts coming, redesigns for tons of your equipment, and “sprinting adjustments” which I believe must mean I’ll be hoofing it out of houses faster than the current crawl.

Phasmophobia is adding two new types of ghosts to the beta branch

Would you look at that, it’s Phasmo Friday again. That’s right, it’s the time of the pre-weekend where I’m trying to decide if I need to pack up my ghost gear to do a bit of spook simming before Monday. Signs point to: probably. Phasmophobia has teased that it’s about to get two new types of ghosts on the game’s beta branch. Phasmo has gotten lots of changes during early access, but this will be the first time it’s introduced new ghosts. The upcoming Yokai and Hantu both sound like they’re going to be tough to flush out without getting…

Phasmophobia’s ghosts are now even harder, better, faster, stronger

Yes, I know it is now half a year past the prime month for spooky games but ghost sleuthing sim Phasmophobia has not let that stop its continual updates. So I will not let it stop me from talking about them either. As of a beta branch update last weekend, Phasmo’s ghosts are, once again, much harder, better, faster, and stronger than before. Yes, all four. I will prove it to you to justify my tortured, dated reference. Read more

Kinetic is making Phasmophobia even scarier

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 12 January 2021 20:34 GMT As it couldn’t get any scarier.Ghosts in Phasmophobia can now hear you, thanks to the latest update to the game by Kinetic Games.Now, when talking or taunting the ghost before a hunt, it will now appear and interact in the game. Plus, the ghost can now locate you via your own microphone sound. Yikes. Basically, the Ghost can now hear non-VR players when hunting in single-player without you using push to talk. And, it can now open locker doors similar to normal doors.So much for hiding in a locker. Well, you…

Phasmophobia will not be getting PvP

By Stephany Nunneley, Wednesday, 4 November 2020 18:16 GMT At one time, a PvP mode was planned for Phasmophobia, but that plan has been scrapped.Speaking with IGN, Kinetic Games said it has dropped the idea of adding PvP to Early Access title Phasmophobia.According to developer Dknighterto, there are no plans at the moment to add another game mode, as it would “turn the game into something completely different.”“I want the game to remain 4 players vs. 1 AI, and balance the game, then add new features around that style of gameplay,” said Dknighterto.Instead of adding new content to the game…


Twitch’s Latest Horror Sensation, Phasmophobia, Has Streamers Screaming (At Each Other)

It’s not uncommon for horror games to take off on Twitch. Usually they’re flashes in the pan: The janky P.T.-alike du jour grabs eyeballs for a few days and then quickly descends back into the poorly-lit pits of obscurity. Phasmophobia is different. Sure, it’s inspired by P.T., and yes, it’s janky as all get out, but it’s been a major player on Twitch for the better part of a month, and over the weekend, it became one of the five most-played games on all of Steam.
