Phasmophobia teases voodoo and summoning circles in its Christmas update

Kinetic Games has teased a couple of the new items coming in Phasmophobia's Christmas update. Peeping the game's Trello board, there's an entry for the "Christmas [REDACTED] Update" that was originally created earlier this month (thanks, PCGamesN). It's since been updated to show two new cursed possessions coming with the update: a summoning circle and a new variant on the voodoo doll.

It's unknown exactly how the two items will play into your ghost-hunting adventures yet, though there's a good chance the summoning circle will let you spawn the ghost wherever you throw it down. There are two more cursed possessions landing with the update, but those are still being kept under wraps. More Ouija board questions will be added too, alongside some other unknown features.

There's no release date on the Christmas update, but going by name you'd expect it soonish. Kinectic Games has done a fairly decent job of dressing up Phasmophobia with some consistent updates throughout 2021, even if it is still a bit of a janky mess at times.  The Nightmare update released last month added a ton of new stuff, including the game's first outdoor map, and a bundle of new ghostly baddies.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
