Phasmophobia Hotfix v0.6.2.1 Changes How Ghost Footsteps Work, Patch Notes Here

Phasmophobia Steam

Phasmophobia's recent update went live a couple of hours ago. Hotfix v0.6.2.1 makes changes to footsteps, addresses a handful of bugs, and improves loading time.

Thanks to the patch, ghost footsteps now work a little differently. The sound of their footsteps now depends on what material they are walking on, a mechanic that was already applied to players. The volume of footsteps in the truck has been reduced, and the rate of ghost footstep sounds to play is improved.

The patch improves the game's load times and changes how Thaye’s weakness works. From now on, players can open ghost-type pages when playing in VR. Thaye will answer questions correctly and Deogen’s speed has been smoother.

You can read the complete patch notes below:

  • Ghost footsteps now have different sounds depending on what the Ghost is walking on, similar to players
  • Updated Deogen weakness description to stop some confusion
  • Reduced the volume of the truck footstep sounds
  • Improved the rate that ghost footstep sounds play
  • Improvements to load times
  • Adjusted how the Thaye’s weakness works
  • The Thaye will now answer questions correctly
  • You can now open the new ghost-type pages in VR

  • Non-VR players will no longer accidentally light nearby smudge sticks when holding a candle or lighter
  • Fixed the missing characters on the tutorial tv screen for non-English languages
  • Fixed an issue where some steam names were being renamed to “reserved name”
