Phasmophobia is the newest talk of the town in the world of video games. The psychological horror title by Kinetic Games has steadily grown in player count over the past few weeks and has been picked up by some big YouTubers and streamers which led to a further increase in its popularity.
Due to a sudden surge in popularity of the game, it isn’t rare for Phasmophobia to experience frequent server issues. If you find yourself unable to connect to the servers, there’s a good chance that the servers are down, unless there’s a problem with your internet connection.
To find out for certain what’s causing the problem, just take a peek at the Photon Engine website. The servers of Phasmophobia are shown on this website and if you see an issue with the servers in your region, then you’re unlikely to be able to play the game. You can also check the downtime over the past day on the website.
Also, be sure to check the pinned Steam thread focusing on server issues in Phasmophobia. If you see a lot of players commenting about similar issues, then the servers are probably down.
There’s nothing you can do to fix these server problems. Your best bet in this scenario is to wait it out. The devs are generally swift to fix these problems and you’ll likely be able to reconnect to the game in a couple of hours.
