Phasmophobia might be in early access, but the game is proving to be a hit among players looking for a compelling, spooky co-op experience. With Halloween just around the corner, there's no better game to get into the spirit of the season.

In Phasmophobia, you and three others play as a team of paranormal investigators looking for ghosts. The ghost will grow increasingly hostile, and will be after your lives. So what should you do after you die in Phasmophobia?

Phasmophobia: What to Do When You Die

When killed, you respawn shortly as a ghost yourself. You can look around and explore the environment, but you can't interact with anything. That doesn't mean you're not useful to the team, though.

There's not much you can do, but death isn't the end in Phasmophobia. As a ghost, you can see better in the darkness. You'll be able to act as a lookout for the rest of the team, being able to spot ghosts further away. You can also check other factors, like the if the Ghost Book has been written in or other environmental clues about the ghost. If you want to communicate what you see, you and your team should be on an external chat program like Discord.

You can also open up your Journal to guess which kind of Ghost killed you. If you guess right, you'll be rewarded at the end of the game.

Phasmophobia is out now on Steam Early Access.
