Phasmophobia Gets a Big Update that Makes Ghosts Even More Aggressive

Phasmophobia Gets a Big Update that Makes Ghosts Even More Aggressive

Phasmophobia quickly became a horror sensation when it released on Steam early access late last year, and Kinetic Games is still pushing out updates to make it even better. A couple months back, a beta branch was released that would allow ghosts to actually hear player voices and track them based on that. The official update is out now, and it makes quite a few tweaks to increase the game difficulty.

For starters, here’s how the ghost AI works now:

  • The ghost will now follow your around corners if it has lost sight of you rather than searching a random location.
  • The ghost will now listen for player voices when hunting and will search those locations. This will not work if you are not the banshee target.
  • The ghost can now open lockers and closets outside of a hunt.
  • The ghost will now open doors, closets and lockers during hunts. This can be stopped by holding the door however the ghost can still walk through room doors like usual.
  • Slightly increased the ghosts chance to wander on all difficulties.
  • The ghost will now search around the location it last saw a player rather than searching a random location.
  • The ghost will now target any player that gets close to it whilst it’s already chasing another player.

In addition to that, Professional difficulty changes also make the game a bit more challenging:

  • Professional Difficulty: You will no longer be told if the Ghost responds to groups or only if you are alone.
  • Professional Difficulty: The power will now always start off.
  • Removed the dirty water objective as it was too hard to get. It will still remain as extra photo evidence.
  • Removed the temperature objective due to the temperature changes listed below.
  • The Activity Monitor will now show an estimated value rather than the true value.
  • Glow sticks will now have the same brightness when you are holding them as when they are thrown.
  • Improved the movement of ghost orbs so that they stay inside the room longer and are easier to see.
  • EMF Readers will now give random values during hunts similar to how the flashlight flashes during hunts.
  • The ghost appearing and walking towards you will now count as a ghost event.
  • Dead players will no longer count towards the average sanity. Instead alive players will now lose 15 sanity each time a player dies.
  • Lowered the resolution of the photos to help with lag spikes when taking the photo.
  • The $50 photo reward challenge has been changed to be a total $50 reward over multiple games.
  • Banshees will now hunt like other ghosts and target any player when it’s target player is outside.
  • Improved how the bone spawns to help prevent it spawning in unreachable locations.

This update also includes a few other quality-of-life improvements, and you can check out the full list here.
