News | Halloween update for Phasmophobia now available

A Halloween update for the horror game Phasmophobia has been released.

The Nightmare update includes a new area called the Maple Lodge Campsite, which is a medium-sized map with picnic areas, tents, a wooden cabin, and a haunted lake. The developer warns that it is the most detailed map to date, which could cause older computers to experience lower frame rates.

In addition, four new ghost types will be added. Around Halloween, players are more likely to encounter one of these new ghosts. Their names are Onryo, The Twins, Raiju and Obake. In addition, various weather conditions are now supported, as well as a new Nightmare difficulty setting.

Phasmophobia appeared on Steam Early Access last year and has grown rapidly in popularity. In the game, players have to track down ghosts with three others using various tools. The game uses speech recognition, where ghosts respond to some words. The game also supports virtual reality.


News | Halloween is coming to Hitman 2

Hitman 2 will receive a Halloween event called the Escalation Contract and it will start this week

Developer IO Interactive has not yet announced what the event actually entails. However, a new trailer has been unveiled today and the short video shows the theme of the update: classic horror movies.

In the trailer we see Agent 47 with a frightening carved pumpkin on his head  and he is out for revenge. Not allot is revealed in the video, but it’s clear that the Hitman has again pulled out a number of separate costumes. In addition, we see that he drags his victims to a sort of altar, but what his plans are is still unclear.

The Hitman Halloween event is open to everyone with the free Hitman 2 starter pack. This means that players can even participate in the event when they don’t have the full game. Moreover, the game mode remains playable even after Halloween.
