Phasmophobia Update Brings Halloween-Themed Event

Phasmophobia Kinetic Games

Phasmophobia, the co-op horror title by Kinetic Games, received two small patches today. The bigger one is focused on new content and the smaller one exclusively brings bug fixes.

Hotfix v0.7.1.1 fixes two issues. The first fix is for the bug where the Jenga tower will fall over at the beginning. The second is the Halloween ghost photo won’t be the first ghost photo anymore.

The bigger patch or Update v0.7.1.0 brings a Halloween-themed event. Players will need to visit any location decorated with a pumpkin sticker. Doing this will reward them with five sanity per candy collected or Jack-o'-lantern lit. However, it must be done on Nightmare Difficulty without heavy rain.

Players will need to do three steps to complete each map. They will have to search for the candy, light Jack-o'-lanterns, and snap a photo of the ghost and viola, they are done.

You can check out the patch notes of the bigger update below.

On Nightmare Difficulty without heavy rain; enter any location decorated with a pumpkin sticker on the contract selection board! You will gain 5 sanity per candy collected or Jack-o'-lantern lit!
Collect these in order to complete each map:
  1. Search for candy!
  2. Then light Jack-o'-lanterns!
  3. Finally snap a photo of the ghost!
