Phasmophobia – Can You Play It On PS4?

The PS4 is a great console to play any horror game and Phasmophobia is certainly no different.

It’s a game that has been made popular by streamers and influencers alike. No doubt that has influenced you to try out the game for yourself. Though you may be feeling left out depending on what platform you’re playing on.

Is Phasmophobia on PS4?

Sadly, Phasmophobia isn’t on the PS4. As of the time of this writing, you can only experience it for yourself on PC. While there is crossplay available, that is only really for Steam and VR.

Will Phasmophobia come to PS4?

As of yet, there is no announcement that Phasmophobia will be coming to the PS4. The good news is, is that there isn’t really much reason as to why it can’t. So we might be seeing an announcement from Kinetic Games regarding this soon.

Phasmophobia does run on the Unity Engine and there are plenty of games on the PlayStation 4 that have it. As someone who has played this on PC, I can definitely see that there might be a few issues porting it to consoles.

Will Phasmophobia feature crossplay?

Crossplay between PC and consoles would be challenging to realize. While it isn’t impossible, there would have to be some overhauls regarding movement and control to make it smoother for players using controllers.

The movement in Phasmophobia is simplistic enough, but console players might experience a challenge grabbing certain objects and opening/closing doors. Phasmophobia also uses proximity chat as a game mechanic so it would also need to implement solid voice chat features.

If the game does come out on PS4 then it isn’t far off to say that crossplay will be implemented in the future.

Why You Should Play Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia is a fun game to play whether alone or with friends. There’s an appeal to the investigative horror nature that can make each game different. This is why we’re hoping for the game to release on the consoles.

While Phasmophobia isn’t out yet on PS4 or Xbox One, we can definitely say that it would be a solid horror game.

  • Phasmophobia features a voice proximity as a game mechanic. There are tools in the game that allow you to communicate with the ghost you’re investigating. At the same time, this is a double edged blade as when the ghost is hunting you, making noise will reveal your location.
  • The investigation gets dangers the longer it gets. If you’re the type of player who likes it safe, then you may want to find evidences and complete goals as soon as possible. Ghosts attack and react to your party based on your general average sanity. However, there are objectives that can require you to stick your neck out. Some ghosts are harder to identify than others so you’ll definitely have to take your time to be sure.
  • Each ghost is different. Some are more aggressive, some are more shy. But they’re all deadly and can kill you if you don’t know what you’re doing. The characteristics of a ghost won’t show be obvious right away and can take some repeat experiments and team coordination to be absolutely sure.
  • No investigation will be the same. Even if the ghost you encounter is of the same type as the last, interactions with it are randomized in a way that makes each game feel unique in its own way.
  • Phasmophobia is scary especially for first time players who aren’t really knowledgeable in what to do. Even after twenty hours of playing game, we still get scared of every time a light flickers. This is because Phasmophobia executes the anticipation of horror very well. You won’t always see the ghost, but you know they’re always watching you.
