Phasmophobia Hotfix Brings Changes to VR and Non-VR

Phasmophobia Steam/Kinetic Games

Phasmophobia received a major update, Exposition, which added a whole lot of content to the game. However, it also added some bugs. So, the developer released a hotfix to address some of them, while also making minor changes.

Hotfix has changed how DOTS Projector works. From now on, the projector will flicker randomly and not just by ghosts. Players will also not see projector interaction via EMF. To improve performance, the developer has removed the majority of house candles from the game.
