Kinetic Games has just released a brand new level in their popular ghost-hunting co-op game, Phasmophobia. The Prison level has been in the works for a while now, and players can finally try it out by opting into the beta. We first got word of the new level through the Phasmophobia Trello board, where one of the tasks listed was “make a Prison level.”

Phasmophobia beta adds a new Prison level

The Prison is one of the game’s most significant maps yet, and undoubtedly the spookiest we’ve seen to date. It’s also a professional difficulty level, so be sure to bring all the equipment you can to prepare for it. The new area is currently in beta testing, meaning it still needs some work. Continue reading below to find out how to opt-in to the Phasmophobia beta and help test out the new map.

How to get into the Phasmophobia Beta

To get into the Phasmophobia beta, head over to the official Discord. Go into the roles channel, and give the beta opt-in a thumbs up. After you do that, the beta channels should become available, allowing you to report bugs to the team. 

Next, open up your Steam client and head to your library. Find and right-click Phasmophobia, and go to properties. Navigate to the betas tab and select unstable build. Steam will then download any new beta clients, and you can then launch into the Phasmophobia beta.
