Phasmophobia March 27 Update Brings New Objectives, Post-Game Screen, and Bug Fixes

Phasmophobia Steam/Kinetic Games

Phasmophobia, the four-player co-op horror game, that suddenly became popular received a small update recently. The patch brought several new things, made changes to existing content, and fixed a plethora of bugs.

The update added support for bHaptics tact suits - the best way to play Phasmophobia in VR. Over a dozen bugs were addressed as well, such as the VR dead bodies now spawning as intended and the white glare bug now gone. It also fixed the issues where you can’t hear your heartbeat when outside and holding a candle would drain your sanity.

The patch added four new objectives to the game with some are Professional objectives while others are Intermediate and Multiplayer objectives. They are mentioned in great detail below:
