“This update now puts the game in a much more stable state.”
Kinetic Games, developer of indie smash horror Phasmophobia, has unveiled a number of changes coming to the ghost detective game, including a new accessibility feature and improvements to the quality of life.
“Over the last few months, there’s been a beta branch running regular experimental updates,” the developer said in an update released over the weekend. “With these updates, the game has been fixed, optimized and modified in various ways to improve the game for everyone.
“Some of these changes are quite significant, but these changes have been made to improve the overall gaming experience. This update now puts the game in a much more stable state that allows it to work with new content.”
The new accessibility page allows players to switch audio to mono for hearing-impaired / hearing-impaired players, while a new button for contract difficulty ensures that it is no longer randomized.
The ghost’s AI has also been adjusted. They can now follow you around a corner and listen for player voices as they hunt, as well as open doors, cabinets and cupboards while hunting as well, which sounds frighteningly brilliant.
The main game is now updated. The complete note notes can be found here – https://t.co/b6JjIjNrng #Phasmophobia

Kinetic Games recently announced that they were “re-evaluating” their development plans – which had initially only called for a short period of early access – as a result of the game’s huge success.
Fasmophobia is now available in Steam early access, and you can get a taste of the often scary action, thanks to Eurogamer’s fearless video team.
