If you’re in the mood for scares and Halloween, Phasmophobia is the new PC game for you. Available on Steam for only $13.99, it’s pretty much a steal.
Phasmophobia is a 4 player online co-op psychological horror. With paranormal activity happening all around you, it’s up to you and your team to use ghost hunting equipment and gather as much evidence as possible, identify the ghosts, and get out safely.
Main features of this new horror game are proximity chat and low visibility in game. Proximity chat will allow you to talk with teammates only when nearby, making the game much more realistic.
And since you’re trying to identify ghosts in their natural habitat, the lights will be off. You’ll only have a single flashlight and small peripheral vision to see where you’re going. Other voice chat options are using a walkie talkie in the game to reach your teammates in case of emergency. But be forewarned, the walkie talkies are loud and may anger the spirits haunting the premises.
Your objective is to identify the certain types of ghosts inhabiting the premises and making it out alive as a team. You have to be careful, because even if you’re walking as a unit, the ghosts may lock you in a room all by yourself.
Another unique feature in the game is using a GoPro camera that feeds to your surveillance van outside. So whether you all go in at once, or send one brave soul in to test the waters, that’s up to you.
