We gave you a list of our Halloween picks a couple of years ago. These games included were titles like Layers of Fear which we know is being remade in Unreal Engine 5. Other games include Visage and Resident Evil. All of these were available on console as well as PC except for the co-op title popular with streamers. That game is Phasmophobia and is currently available on PC only. So if I look at Steam I can see it’s incredibly popular.

Phasmophobia is a 4-player co-op game where you and your team of paranormal investigators will enter haunted locations filled with paranormal activity. Your goal is to gather as much evidence as possible about the ghosts that are haunting the location.

What We Know About Phasmophobia
Both Push Square and Pure Xbox have the official blurb about the game from developers Kinetic Games. We get told the game is a “4-player, online co-op, psychological horror game. You and your team of paranormal investigators will enter haunted locations filled with paranormal activity and try to gather as much evidence as you can. Use your ghost-hunting equipment to find and record evidence to sell on to a ghost removal team”. Though what we are unclear of is when exactly the game is out. However, as we are pretty much halfway through June we are likely to hear something soon. We are unsure if the game will be included in PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass through the Steam listing is reasonably priced. It is priced at £10.99/$13.99 so hopefully we see a similar price come August. It will also launch as a console early access release as well.
