Phasmophobia has been given a new update in honor of the game's first anniversary.

Developer Kinetic Games has released an update for supernatural co-op horror game, Phasmophobia. The update celebrates the game's one year anniversary and adds a bunch of new improvements and additions. Such tweaks include an overhaul to the game's journal system, permitting players to cross off evidence, change settings, and a redesign that makes it easier to use.

One interesting feature that has been added is an offline singleplayer mode. Now, players won't need to connect to the server in order to play.

In a recent blog post, Kinetic Games thanked fans for all of the support they had given the game over the last year. "It has been an amazing year for Kinetic Games and Phasmophobia and I would like to thank everyone for their amazing support. Today, Phasmophobia is one of the highest rated games on Steam which is incredible and something I never imagined happening."

Here's the full list of changes which have been added to Phasmophobia through the Anniversary update.
