phasmophobia took the cooperative horror experience by storm when it first launched, and as Kinetic Games constantly updating the game, things have only gotten scarier for aspiring paranormal investigators. The latest update is perhaps one of the most needed for those who want to get up close and personal with Phasmos ghouls in virtual reality.
On April 7th at 11:00 UTC, Kinetic released the VR Overhaul update for Phasmophobia. With an all new VR system now in place, gameplay and ghost hunting should be a lot smoother for the VR enthusiasts out there. However, this will likely make things even more terrifying, and you certainly won’t catch me trying to counter an Obake or a Banshee in VR.
Phasmophobia now supports all major VR headsets, various item grabbing options have been implemented, and players can also play in VR sitting mode or simulate crouching to avoid having to crouch regularly. These are just a few of the changes made by the overhaul, but overall Phasmophobia’s VR experience seems smoother, without as many bugs, and much more accessible for players.
These virtual reality changes aren’t the only thing introduced by the VR Overhaul update. Each map’s hideouts and difficulty have been improved, and there are new local voice transmission options. As always, Kinetic seem to have worked tirelessly to continually improve Phasmophobia; We might even see it leaving Early Access soon one day.
I love Phasmophobia – part of me loves being senseless scared and that’s why I’ve always been drawn to horror games… but Phasmophobia in VR has always been a little bit to immersive for me. You might catch me trying the overhaul once or twice out of morbid curiosity, but there’s no doubt I’ll check every closet and crawl into bed at the first sign of jump scares.
Will you be trying out Phasmophobia’s VR overhaul anytime soon?
