You can only add 1 of each starter item, as you get 1 for free.
Make a loadout, save it, then each game you just hit ADD on the loadout screen :)

Players can report each person they play with once a day, using the in-game journal. This system will prevent people from spam reporting against someone they may not like or have an issue with.

Every report is viewable by the development team and filtered in a way so that we can ban people accordingly to their offenses and the number of reports received. We can also see who reported them, at what time, and much more.

You won't be banned because one party decided to “troll report” you for being bad at the game.




When banned, you will be notified in-game with an error message alongside the remaining duration of your ban. Bans will stop players from entering th... Read more

Welcome back ghost hunters and truck dwellers, we've got some news for you!

We thought we'd spend a short moment recapping how development has gone over 2022, and give you an updated version of the roadmap we released earlier this year.



The original 2022 roadmap

As you can see, things didn't exactly go to plan!

Originally the VR overhaul was planned to release earlier than April, allowing us to get knee-deep into Custom Difficulty's development. As it took longer, we pushed Custom back a couple of months and gave the community three smaller patches of content to fill the gap in content.

The new updated roadmap

We won't be keeping old asylum for a few core reasons.
It doesnt match the quality of what we want Phas to uphold.
It's made entirely of paid / free assets that arent unique to Phas.
It doesnt play overly well, and its only selling feature is "big".

Welcome back we've got some news for you!

As we're nearing our testing phase, this will probably be the final preview before the Custom Difficulty update is released!

Any information and images are Work In Progress (WIP) and may change drastically before releasing



We've had a tonne of questions on what settings will be available to customize your games, so we thought we'd shed a little light on what's to come!

Every single setting that you can change in Custom Difficulty is tied to a reward multiplier. This means you could recreate Nightmare difficulty, and only change a couple of settings, to get similar rewards!

We've tried to make every setting's multiplier fair, based on the advantage or disadvantage it may bring to your investigation.

Do you want the ghost to be slower and th... Read more

Welcome back we've got some news for you.

We're glad that you're all enjoying the v0.6.2 update!

The next major update "Custom Difficulty" is getting closer and closer every day. So today we want to show you a couple of new big things, to keep those hype meters cranked up to the max.

Any information and images are Work In Progress (WIP) and may change drastically before releasing



Some of your keen eyes may have noticed the lack of an add/buy button on the new main menu screen.

Well, Ghost Huntin' Distribution has been kind enough to upgrade some of our systems!

You'll soon find a new computer set up in the main menu room, for all your buying and selling needs!

Welcome back we've got some news for you!

As you've all been enjoying the development previews so much. We thought we'd drop you another one.

Dknighter's been smashing through the next minor update: v0.6.2. This update will include the two new ghosts, the new truck design, and layout, as well as a brand new voice recognition system!

The second of our new ghosts have finally decided to start revealing itself, but what does it mean?

Welcome back, we've got some news for you!

We'd like to give everyone a huge thank you for the support and feedback from Development Preview #1. This is something we will be continuing! Now, onto the new stuff:

Any information and images are Work In Progress (WIP) and may change drastically before releasing



First up, some Kinetic Games news!

As you may know, Phasmophobia was made solely by DK up until last July. Corey (cjdxn) and Ben (Lavender) then joined the team to help speed up development.

Well, the exciting news is we've just hired another artist, Jack (Skinner)! This will allow us to create maps alongside other content, as well as speed up anything particularly large in scope!

Make sure to give him a big welcome in the Discord!

Welcome back we've got some news for you!

We're going to start experimenting with expanding on our Discord "Dev Previews" by bringing them here on Steam, and ramping them up to the maximum! We'll try to keep these semi-regular and post whenever we have content to show off!

Hopefully, these posts will help break up the larger gaps between content, and let you know what we're up to, as well as keeping you excited for what's to come.

0.6.2 is just around the corner, and a new ghost has been noted down in our Journals, but some of the information is ruined, what can you make out?

The Region select auto defaults to whichever you have the lowest ping to, our server provider may have issues in your home region so that sometimes causes odd defaults too.

Welcome back ghost hunters, we’ve heard you, and we're working on it!

We want to thank you for your understanding and patience, a completely new system for VR will take some time to get right, but we're getting there with the help of your feedback!

We're still working on things, and will release several more bug fixes as they get completed.



Our first approach to reducing the overuse of door hiding didn't work too well, so we've reverted several doors for better navigation, but given our ghosts a lesson in how to play hide and seek properly!

In the last update, Willow got the full hiding spot treatment, and the other locations were feeling a little left out! We've gone through said locations to adjust, add or remove hiding spots to make them more consistent and reliable:

You mean like how for a year and a half the game has had zero improvements to VR? Your argument works against you my friend!
It needed doing, desperately, once these bugs are done its done forever, and we can work adding content again.

Welcome back, we’ve got an update for you.

Finally, the VR update is amongst us! Rejoice!

There's loads to unpack here for our VR players, as well as some little nuggets of content for everyone else. But fear-not ghost hunters, the 'Custom Difficulty' update will be soon approaching, and it's a big one... There's also a small update coming even sooner than that! Now, onto the patch notes:



An entirely new VR system has been incorporated into Phasmophobia!

This means better VR performance, smoother interactions and input, as well as fixing all bugs and issues caused by the old VR implementation.
  • All major headsets are now officially supported, and in the future as more are released they should work by default
  • VR players will now see a small cursor when attemptin...

These are fake joke patch notes for April Fools
Welcome back, we’ve got an update for you.

We’ve been experimenting with some new methods of game design, and have decided that this will be the final update for Phasmophobia.

We will be swiftly moving on to work on a new project named ‘Phasmophobia 2’, entering Early Access March 31st 2025 and releasing April 1st 2025.
