Phasmaphobia Update: Bug Fixes, New Features, and More

Phasmaphobia steam

Phasmophobia developer, Kinetic Games, recently released a new update that introduced cool features and improved the Ghost AI to make the game spookier. The developers have added an option to select the contract difficulties, which is really useful to avoid random contracts.

The Ghost AI improvements made the game scarier to play. With the update, the ghost will chase you even around corners after losing track of you and will no longer seek in a random location. Unlike before, the ghost can now hear your voice, so minimize conversations to avoid attracting unwanted attention.

Phasmophobia Update:

New Additions

  • Added an accessibility page where you can swap your sound to mono. This requires a game restart.
  • Added a button to select the contract difficulty rather than it being random.
  • Added a button in the game options to change the ports the game uses. This can help significantly in some situations where you are getting a lot of disconnects. This option requires a game restart.
  • Added text on the sanity monitor to show the team's average sanity that the ghost uses to hunt.

Quality of Life Improvements

  • Improved the server and contract selection navigation on gamepads.
  • You can now enter the room invite code with the keyboard numpad.
  • Added a button to add the max amount of each item so you don't have to spam-click each item.
  • Added a server region prefix in front of the room invite code to help show what region you are in or trying to connect to.
  • Added a delay for closing the truck door once it has been opened to prevent trolling.
  • Changing character will no longer unready everyone.
  • Added an "Are you sure?" check after clicking the training button on the main menu.

Ghost AI Improvements

  • The ghost will now follow you around corners if it has lost sight of you rather than searching a random location.
  • The ghost will now listen for player voices when hunting and will search those locations. This will not work if you are not the banshee target.
  • The ghost can now open lockers and closets outside of a hunt.
  • The ghost will now open doors, closets, and lockers during hunts. This can be stopped by holding the door however the ghost can still walk through room doors like usual.
  • Slightly increased the ghost's chance to wander on all difficulties.
  • The ghost will now search around the location it last saw a player rather than searching a random location.
  • The ghost will now target any player that gets close to it whilst it's already chasing another player.
