By the time this article goes live, Phasmophobia will have rolled out its next major update, which looks to overhaul the game’s VR mode. According to the patch notes on the Steam page, there are a number of changes that have been implemented. However, that’s not to say that non-VR players don’t get something as well, as there are some additional tweaks to the overall experience.
Among other things, this latest update now makes the game compatible with all major VR headsets, including HTC Vive, Valve Index, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. There is now a small cursor that will appear onscreen when a player is attempting to grab something, as well as options for “VR Seated Mode” and “Left Handed Mode.” Additionally, the model for the virtual reality belt has also been given a new model and textures.
For non-VR fans, Kinetic Games has been keeping an eye on things and has noticed that many players like to hide from ghosts behind doors. The patch notes go on to say that this can make it so that some spots are “So good, you can’t be killed at all.” As a result, there have been some changes to where it’s possible to hide. This update could signify the end of the tried and true method of crouching behind a door and pulling it close to you, which may make it more difficult for some.
There have also been updates to things like the screens in the truck, as well as the ability to cross evidence off in Phasmophobia’s journal. The update also grants dead players the power to spring indefinitely. As usual with these patches, there is a list of bug fixes as well.
Currently, there doesn’t seem to be any word about whether Phasmophobia will be adding any new maps yet, which is what many have been waiting for.
