Phasmophobia Update Adds New Ghost Types and New Truck

Phasmophobia Steam

Phasmophobia recently received an update that added three new entities, a new truck, and bug fixes. These new additions should keep you busy until the launch of the Custom Difficulty Update.

New Ghosts

The developers have introduced three new ghosts in Deogen, Moroi, and Thaye in this update. These three ghosts will have an increased spawn rate for the next two weeks, so players can experience all the spooky stuff themselves. We would suggest you go in blind without reading any information about these ghosts to make it more challenging and scary at the same time.

New Truck

The Truck or Van is the vehicle used to transport players from the lobby to the map. The Truck also comes equipped with a few devices that help players find ghosts. In this update, the Truck has received new models, a layout, and additional materials. The pieces of equipment are now placed on the walls of the truck, instead of on the rack.

Sounds make the game more spooky, and with this update, the developers added new footstep sounds for the metal floor in the truck and ramp. The new sounds should make players more paranoid when they hear footsteps.
