Update 0.5.1 has arrived for Phasmophobia, and here’s a list with all the changes and fixes added with this patch. Phasmophobia already added some Christmas content into the game, but the developers are not finished making changes to the game. This patch does not bring any new content, but it does add some fixes to the game. Here’s everything new with Phasmophobia update 0.5.1.

Phasmophobia Update 0.5.1 Patch Notes

Changes

  • Foggy weather has been temporarily removed while we work on a new system and will return looking better than ever with the VR rework early next year.
  • All Cursed Possessions will now only have *one* spawn point each, meaning only 6 spawns in total per map to learn. Finding them will be more intuitive too e.g. Summoning Circle found in basements or attics.

A lot of changes regarding some ghosts and their spawns were made. They also changed some of their abilities, making them less powerful, giving players more chances to discover them and survive. Ghost’s descriptions also received a change; they are going to give away their weakness better. Besides these changes, the patch managed to fix a lot of bugs. Bugs regarding ghosts, effects, audio elements, and more were fixed. Now players should be able to enjoy the new content with fewer issues.
