The Phasmophobia Truck Overhaul, update v0.6.2.0, brings new ghosts, an entirely new voice recognition system, and fixes. If you’re looking for more spooky content, be sure to check out our section on Phasmophobia. We’ve included the official patch notes for the game below that were posted on Steam.

Phasmophobia Truck Overhaul | Update v0.6.2.0

There have been reports of three new entities haunting several locations. More information is available in the Journal:

  • Deogen: Always watching
  • Moroi: Risen from the grave to curse their victims
  • Thaye: The ever-aging ghost
  • These three ghosts will have an increased chance of spawning for two weeks.

They are also introducing “The Investigation Period” with these new ghost types!

This gives players around two weeks to work out the ghosts’ abilities, traits and secrets before the patch notes are updated with the specific details. They are hoping this will bring back that authentic investigative feel to the game and allow players to work together as a team to uncover the truth!

Voice Recognition

The Phasmophobia voice recognition system has been replaced! Phasmophobia will no longer rely on Windows’ speech systems. The game now supports many more languages and platforms, such as ‘GeForce Now’ and Steam Deck, with no setup required.

  • You now only need to set your microphone in-game instead of your ‘Windows Default Microphone.’
  • You can now see the input volume of your microphone in the Audio Settings
  • Additional microphone input options have been added:
    • Voice Detector Sensitivity
    • Noise Suppression
  • Because the new system only works if you are on a server, the voice recognition test has been removed.

Note: The above additional Audio options are only available while in-game, through the Journal’s Options menu

Currently supported languages:

  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Japanese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Italian
  • Portuguese

  • Ukrainian
  • Czech
  • Greek
  • More languages will be added in a future update
