Phasmophobia preview shows long-awaited shop overhaul coming next week

No mention of console release, though.

Those guys over at Kinetic Games sure are determined to keep Phasmophobia ticking over nicely. With the studio initiating a reset along with a huge update last year, it feels as though the team is trying to keep things fresh. Now, we’ve got some more stuff inbound, including something that a lot of fans should be pleased with.

In a recent post on Steam, we’ve been treated to a bit of insight into what’s happening behind the Phasmophobia scenes. First and foremost, we’re getting an update to the shop “sometime next week.”

After hearing the feedback, Kinetic is working hard to make it “the best shop it can be.” A few images show what we can expect when the changes happen. However, as always with these previews, any “information and images are Work In Progress (WIP) and may change drastically before releasing.”

Actually, yes. Why have we not had rickety houses before?

We’re also told that progress on some other things is coming along nicely. For example, we’ve been shown a new image from Point Hope, the lighthouse map that the team will “soon be able to set it up for gameplay and get testing.”

And yes, you can apparently play the chessboard that’s in the image. This also means it may not be long until the map starts rolling out. Caveats apply, as always.

On top of this, tinkering is still underway on the farmhouses, which are being given a rework. Images show that Grafton is getting something of a visual overhaul, with it now being a lot more dilapidated, as well as having its layout altered.

Sadly, there’s been no word on the much-anticipated console port. We were told last year that the developer had to delay it, but there’s been no confirmation on when we can expect it.

Personally, I can’t wait until the new shop update. Ever since the changes came a while back, I’ve really not got on with it. Apparently, I’m not alone in this, according to the comments on this Reddit thread. It’s pretty much the one thing that’s been a thorn in my back when it comes to Phasmo.
