A small update for Phasmophobia dropped last Thursday. In update v0.6.2.1, there are a couple of changes that aims to improve the overall gaming experience for players. Read on to find out all the details about this latest update.

Kinetic Games released a new update focusing on bug fixes

For Phasmophobia, the last major update it had was the Truck Overhaul update. Aside from much-needed changes to the truck, it also introduced new ghosts to the game. The new ghosts introduced included Deogen, a new eerie and powerful ghost which stalks its victim and remains visible the entire time it’s chasing down a player.

And now, Kinetic Games released a small update a few days ago which aims to fix a few bugs players encountered after the Truck Overhaul update went live. There were some issues with the ghost Deogen and how it looks like when changing speeds.

Then, Kinetic Games also introduced a new feature wherein players can distinguish what type of floor a ghost is walking on. They also fixed a bug wherein ghost footsteps can still be heard even if they are not moving around in the map.

On the other hand, what players looked forward the most to in the newest patch are the changes coming to VR. Now, VR players can view the new ghost types.

Other fixes introduced in the patch update which dropped last week focused on gameplay fixes.
