The big Halloween update for Phasmophobia seems to have been hiding a creepy stowaway, as fans have discovered that none other than the infamous Slender Man is hiding in the woods around Maple Lodge Campsite – which was added earlier this week.
Phasmophobia developer Kinetic Games is well-known for creepy little teases – the team particularly loves to throw out hints about new ghosts way before releasing them, as the run-up to this week’s big Halloween Nightmare update proved. This released on Monday and brought with it four new ghosts, the new Nightmare difficulty, various major tweaks, and the new Maple Lodge Campsite map.
The campsite map is different from previous maps in that it’s set in the woods, and players digging into the map have discovered all manner of Easter eggs – including the mask of Jason Voorhees and a dead body under the cabin, which presumably belongs to one of the new ghosts. The creepiest secret, however, is Slender Man hiding in the woods.
