Phasmophobia Hotfix v0.8.0.3 Tweaks Custom Difficulty Again, Patch Notes Here

Phasmophobia Kinetic Games

The developer of Phasmophobia has had a change of heart as they have once again balanced the rewards for custom games. The previously applied -60% reduction for custom games is removed, with two more tweaks added.

The maximum limit of the custom reward multiplier is changed to x15 and wrongly identifying the ghost type will lower the multiplier. The developer has also assured players that a proper rebalancing of custom games will arrive early next year.

Reward Changes
  • Custom Reward Multipliers will now have a maximum cap of x15, displayed with the actual multiplier beside it in brackets.
  • Incorrectly identifying the ghost type will lower your multiplier to the next default difficulty (rounding down). E.g. 5x > 4x or 3.7x > 3x
  • Some Ouija board questions have had their sanity reductions increased, as they were much too powerful for the sanity trade-off
    • [spoiler]Ghost location – 50% (Previously 40%) [/spoiler]
    • [spoiler]Bone location – 50% (Previously 20%) [/spoiler]
  • The Haunted Mirror's sanity drain has been adjusted, so that you can't entirely avoid the sanity drain with a 1-second peek and still reap the reward. This should also encourage slightly longer peers into the paranormal realm.
    • [spoiler]The Mirror will now drain a minimum of 20% sanity per use[/spoiler]
  • Adjusted player freezing breath visuals so it will no longer block your view when walking too close to it
  • Smudge Sticks will now visually animate much more accurately with the timing of their gameplay effect
  • Improved Smudge Sticks' smoke effect
  • Adjusted several inconsistent text capitalizations in English
  • Rebaked Sunny Meadows
  • Removed several sky light leaks in the following locations:
    • Willow
    • Tanglewood
    • Edgefield
    • Ridgeview
    • Grafton
    • Sunny Meadows
  • The DOTS and death room ghost will no longer be the wrong ghost model
  • The reset save button will now work
  • Sanity will now stop draining when you are in a lit area
  • Snow will no longer fall inside the Bleasdale attic
