Like many horror games, the idea of playing Phasmophobia is very interesting to me. However, actually playing a horror game is something that I very rarely do. Reading about the latest patch from Kinetic and I think I will stay far away from this one.
The latest patch means that non-VR players can also be heard by the ghosts, that will use your microphone to locate you. The catch here? It doesn’t matter if you have push to talk, the ghost is listening to your microphone all the time, no cheating on these paranormals!
Ghosts can also open locker doors now, meaning that if you hide in a locker, the ghost could come get you. The only counter to this is to hold onto the door to stop them.
There are also a few bug fixes that remove safe spots from the various levels, as well as stopping the ghost from getting stuck on the way to closets and lockers.
Oh and you can change the difficulty to professional even if you are below level 25 now. So go be a pro.
