Phasmophobia Update v0.4.0: New Content and Bug Fixes

Phasmophobia Steam

Phasmophobia recently received a new update that added new content and several bug fixes. The developers have reworked each difficulty setting to make it feel more unique and challenging as you progress. The amateur, intermediate, and professional difficulty modes have various setup times for you to find the ghosts.

But the true challenge lies in the Nightmare mode, where ghosts will not reveal a single type of evidence, and some monitoring tools are damaged. This makes it very challenging to find what type of ghost has spawned in a hunt. You will also get reduced restorative effects from sanity pills, compared to other difficulties. So, the ghost will likely kill the ghost hunters before anyone can make a guess.

Additionally, the developers have randomized weather for every contract. This should make each ghost hunt unique as the temperature can drop low or go high. The change in temperature will make it difficult for players to identify the scenario they are in and how each contract will play out.
