If you happen to get through the numerous lobby issues Phasmophobia is having, you’ll have to deal with the possibility of Phasmophobia crashing?

Is Crashing An Issue In Phasmophobia?

Numerous users are reporting crashing in Phasmophobia. However, the crashing doesn’t seem to occur during gameplay as much as it occurs after a game has finished. Players will hear the voice on the radio confirming the job has ended, but their screen stays black. Another time Phasmophobia randomly crashes is before the game even begins. There are reports of players getting stuck at 90% right before they load in the truck and never getting in. When the go to click on the screen, the game crashes.

Is There Any Way To Fix The Crashing In Phasmophobia?

Right now, the only way to fix the crashing issue in Phasmophobia is to completely close the game if it’s stuck on the black screen.

  2. Verify integrity of game files (right-click on Phasmophobia in Steam -> Local Files tab -> Verify integrity of game files)
  3. Ensure your internet connection is stable
  4. Opt into Beta build (#read-me) and then switch back to the stable build
  5. Try using VPN (this especially applies to players from Brazil). If you’re using one already, try disabling it.
  6. Add the game directory to your antivirus’ exceptions list.

  1. Bryan, Phasmophobia must be a fun game because I keep seeing how popular it is despite some glitches like it crashing and people being booted from the lobby. From the looks of things, it’s not even a gameplay issue. Is it fair to say this will be corrected as the game is developed further? I know you hint at that, but what’s the final word?
