Phasmophobia developer Kinetic Games announced a new upgrade for the beta version of the game on Monday, which now allows the game’s cast of ghosts to hear the voices of players when they hunt, prompting them to search for the locations where the noise originates.
“A lot of people thought it was a feature that already existed, so it really has been added.”, tweeted Kinetic Games. “This is experimental, please let me know if there is a problem.”.
Kinetic Games also shared that the new feature is based on how loud a player’s microphone is, meaning you can still whisper while a ghost is searching for your terrified meaty body.
The new audio feature is sure to throw the loudest players out of the pan into the fire, and it could play a big role in bigger levels of Phasmophobia, where players can put more distance between themselves and their ghostly target.
