Phasmophobia Creeps Back into Steam's Top 10 Most Played Games with Its “Exposition” Update

Over the Weekend the Co-op Horror Game Had Its Highest Concurrent Player Count Since Launch

August 30, 2021 by

With just one month until Phasmophobia‘s 1-year anniversary, the 4-player co-op horror game has released its biggest update yet and creeped back into Steam’s Top 10 most played games.

Offering gamers a unique first-person/VR haunted house experience from the “comfort” of their own homes during last year’s Covid-19 lockdowns on Halloween, the only thing more shocking than Phasmophobia‘s ghosts was learning that the game was created by a single developer.

Now, after bringing on a few more devs and releasing some minor updates over the past year, the team at Kinetic Games have released the game’s biggest update yet, Exposition, that introduces two new ghost types, new equipment, and many more changes/fixes.

As a result, Phasmophobia‘s player base tripled over the weekend with a peak of 62k concurrent players. The highest player count the game has seen since its peak of 112k players during its record-breaking first month on Steam.
