Phasmophobia Beta Update

You might have to be a bit more mindful of when to speak in Phasmophobia thanks to a new update.

Ghosts can now actually hear you before a hunt and will find you using your voice.

This works whether you use push to talk or not.

Ghosts can even open locker doors now, although you can hold the door shut to prevent them from getting in.

As well as that some bugs have been fixed such as "safe spots" on some levels.

You can even change the difficulty to professional if you're below level 25.

This update was announced through Phasmophobia/Kinetic Games' Twitter account which you can view below.
