Paranormal Hunter Co-Op Ghost Hunting Game Announced With Optional VR

While some games, like Among us, took a long time to become viral hits, Phasmophobia took off almost immediately. Game streamers flocked to the title in time for Halloween of 2020, bringing attention to the game and propelling it into a smash hit. While many still enjoy Phasmophobia, there could be competition from next year.

An upcoming ghost hunting title by the name of Paranormal hunter has been announced. The cooperative game is under development by EALoGames, with members of the development teams for Shenmue and Shin megami tensei I’m working on it.

A brief trailer has been released for Paranormal hunter, giving players a glimpse of the kind of terror to expect when the game hits Early Access in Q2 2022. Up to four players can participate in the ghost hunt, aided by various paranormal artifacts and tools to help spot – or to hunt – ghosts.

As Phasmophobia, Paranormal hunter will allow PC gamers to choose between playing on a screen or putting on a VR headset to fully immerse themselves in the horror. Cross-play between the two playstyles will also be available, so friends without a VR headset won’t be left out. The game will also arrive on consoles, with PS4, PS5 and Switch versions planned. At the moment, there are no plans to integrate PSVR from the PlayStation 4, but the PS5 PSVR headset currently in development may be another matter, whenever it comes to fruition.

At this time, it’s unclear whether players are attempting to destroy any Vengeful Spirits they encounter, or just document them and escape, as Phasmophobia. However, it should be noted that players will have to deal with locked doors and blocked passageways, so finding tools in the environment and solving puzzles may come into play.

It will be interesting to see if Phasmophobia and Paranormal hunter can coexist, or if one ends up overtaking the other. While Phasmophobia isn’t as popular as it was a year ago, the game still receives regular content updates that add new locations and spirits to contend with. It recently received a Halloween update, and it is assumed that a Phasmophobia will also receive a Christmas update in the near future. While players will likely be intrigued by a spooky new experience, it will be crucial for Paranormal hunter to launch with enough content to keep players busy.

While some major studios continue to produce AAA horror games, such as with Capcom Resident Evil Village, smaller game developers are also hard at work bringing horror to gaming consoles and PCs. Between the recent return of Fatal frame in the west, titles like Made us wrong bringing the silent Hill the atmosphere comes back to life, and now Paranormal hunter, there should be something to delight horror game enthusiasts in the future.

Paranormal hunter is slated to release in early access in the second quarter of 2022.
