Phasmophobia Is Ghosting Plans For PVP
Kinetic Games would rather focus on improving the hit it's got on its hands.
Fans of sleeper hit ghost-hunting sim Phasmophobia may be disappointed to know that the developer has officially canned any plans to bring a PvP mode to the game.
At one point, Phasmophobia's mentioned the addition of a PvP mode where one player could control the ghost being hunted. But in an , Kinetic Games' sole dev Dknighter said that he added that PvP post to gauge reactions, but he currently has no plans to add a PvP mode.
"Right now I have no plans to add another game mode, as it would turn the game into something completely different, and push the game away from what I want it to be. I want the game to remain 4 players vs. 1 AI, and balance the game, then add new features around that style of gameplay," Dknighter stated in the interview.
Currently, new content in general is not the focus for Phasmophobia. Instead, Dknighter wants to improve the gameplay experience and fix bugs.
"At the moment my only focus is getting the major bugs fixed before I begin working on new content," Dknighter told IGN. "These bug fixes would usually be sent out when they are ready but, due to me having to update a lot of the game’s code, a lot of new systems need testing, so the next update will be a big stability and bug fix update. After these bugs are fixed the new content will likely get bundled together in big updates."
All these fixes mean Phasmophobia will likely stay in Early Access longer than expected. The original plan was just to include a few more ghosts, maps, and some more equipment. But now with Phasmophobia's popularity, fans have higher expectations and Dknighter wants to meet them.
