Phasmophobia, Everything You Need to Know About the New Ghost Hunting Game

If you pay attention to YouTubers and streamers like Markiplier and GassyMexican, you have probably seen them hunting ghosts alone or with their friends in a game called Phasmophobia.

The word Phasmophobia is defined as a fear of ghosts. The game certainly plays on that concept greatly, as it simulates some of the most prominent ghost hunting shows of all time, such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures.

The basic gameplay loop involves you going into a location, and looking for evidence of ghosts so that you can sell the location to ghost removers.

As you gather more evidence, the ghosts become increasingly hostile. If you are with friends, you can also stay in the van and simply watch the cameras and cover your friend’s backs.

Phasmophobia is still in early access, but the game still might seem a bit daunting for new players, so here is everything you need to know before you get started.

It Has VR Support and Cross-Play

Phasmophobia has Steam support for the Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift. There is also support for Windows Mixed Reality, a generally regarded cheaper alternative to the big three.

It also supports cross-play between headsets and desktop players. This is an optimization that has been added to some games as VR technology has advanced, but Phasmophobia is one of the most seamless interactions between the two.

Notably, there is also controller support for desktop players who prefer a gamepad to keyboard and mouse.
