The next major Phasmophobia update, Nightmare, is set to launch on Monday, Oct. 25, 2021, at 11 a.m. ET., Kinetic Games announced Friday.

As posted on Twitter, Kinetic Games has not dropped the release date and time for the fast-approaching Nightmare update, but also a major tease of the hit four-player, investigative horror game's next map.

Phasmophobia Nightmare Halloween Update Coming Oct. 25

About a month after Phasmophobia's One Year Anniversary Update, which added an offline single-player mode, an overhaul to the game's journal system and more, the Nightmare Halloween update is sure to spice things up once again just in time for the spooky season.

Whereas at this point in time nearly a year ago, Phasmophobia was only one month removed from its initial launch and had one ghost added in time for Halloween, the new Nightmare update appears primed to outdo that showing bigtime.

According to Kinetic Games' public Trello board, the Oct. 25 Halloween update will reportedly add the long-rumored Nightmare Difficulty, two new ghost types, a difficulty rework, a "Campsite" map, and "much, much" more to Phasmophobia.

At the time of writing, the Halloween update remains in the testing phase, so it's only a matter of time before Phasmophobia players can dive into the new content and get their heart rates pumping.

More details of the Phasmophobia Nightmare Halloween update are set to come out when the full patch notes drop alongside its launch.

Phasmophobia is available on PC (via Steam). It does have VR support, but does not require a VR system to play.
