A new mechanic has been introduced to Phasmophobia

On Twitter, developer Kinetic Games announced that they have introduced a new mechanic to Phasmophobia. Ghosts will now listen for player voices. When they are hunting, they will search the locations where they hear players. Kinetic Games also mentioned that the new voice feature is based on how loud player's mics are. Players will be able to whisper during a hunt and not be detected by the ghost. Kinetic Games did state that players had already thought that this was a feature that was already in the title, which was why it was added to the game. 

Last year it was announced that we should not expect PvP to be added to the game anytime soon. According to the developer, adding new game modes such as PvP would turn the game into something different than what has already been planned. The game will remain to be 4v1 while it is still being balanced. New features will be added to the game that fit the style of gameplay that Kinetic Games is aiming for in Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia is a 4 player online co-op psychological horror title that has teams of players investigate haunted locations. Players enter these locations and try to gather evidence of the haunting, and figure out what kind of ghost they are dealing with. Players use a number of different tools in order to find evidence, including EMF Readers, Thermometers, and Night Vision Cameras. They can also use their voices to interact with the ghosts through tools such as Ouija Boards, and try to provoke a reaction from a ghost using its name. Players do have to be careful though, as ghosts can kill them during the investigation. 

Phasmophobia is available now for PC through Steam. The game is currently in Early Access.
