The spooky season is quick approaching, and it seems like the devs behind among the best ghost video games round are gearing as much as get into the spine-chilling spirit. While there doesn’t appear to have been an official announcement as such, it seems like Phasmophobia has acquired a Halloween update on the best way, with some sort of “nightmare difficulty” in tow.

That’s in line with a new addition to the horror game’s public Trello board, through which Kinetic Games posts some particulars about what’s within the Phasmophobia improvement pipeline at anybody time. A brand new card simply added lists a “Halloween update” as in progress, which you’ll be able to see right here. Sadly, there’s little or no element about what the update will carry proper now, with a lot of the factors labelled as “redacted”, so it appears the devs need to hold loads of playing cards near their chest on what the patch will usher in.

However, there’s something listed known as “nightmare difficulty”. While it’s removed from confirmed by the entry, that is presumably some sort of themed, particularly difficult problem mode that’ll make tackling the game’s ghosts and ghouls all of the extra, effectively, nightmarish, when Halloween rolls round. Though, we’ll have to attend for extra information on what that is, precisely.

Elsewhere, followers have begun making an attempt to guess what these redacted bits and items is likely to be, with one reckoning it may very well be “new sounds, new ghost events, new animations” on Reddit. However, we all know these aren’t fairly proper as lead artist Corey J Dixon has responded, saying, “nope, nope, nope, keep guessing”. So, it’s all very mysterious for now.

We do know the devs have been engaged on a rework of Phasmophobia’s problem system for a few months, with difficulties getting “reworked and rebalanced to make them more engaging, as well as give experienced players something new and challenging to play”. There are additionally some “additional modifiers” probably on the best way to “further increase the challenge and rewards” – for instance, a beginning sanity of 0%, in line with the board. Perhaps the Halloween update’s nightmare choice may very well be a enjoyable spin on a few of the adjustments the devs have been tinkering with up to now months, although – once more – that’s purely hypothesis for now.

Keep a climate eye on Phasmophobia’s Trello board and social media channels when you’re eager to know extra. With Halloween subsequent month, hopefully we’ll hear extra on what the themed update will carry very quickly.
