Demonologist plunges players into the chilling realm of cooperative paranormal investigations, where they must confront an array of sinister supernatural beings, ranging from ghosts and demons to ghouls and other eerie entities. Drawing inspiration from Phasmophobia, Demonologist task players not only with identifying the malevolent force haunting a location but also with performing an exorcism to banish it. This extra challenge amplifies the game’s spine-tingling atmosphere.

It’s no secret that Demonologist shares several similarities with Phasmophobia, including a broad spectrum of ghost types available for pursuit. Both games boast a diverse lineup of 24 ghost types, each possessing distinct traits and characteristics. To learn more about the various ghost types and their unique attributes in Demonologist, delve into the detailed list provided below.

All Demonologist Ghost Types

In Demonologist, players encounter a diverse range of ghost types, reminiscent of Phasmophobia, each possessing unique traits that must be discerned in order to identify the paranormal being.

Properly determining the ghost type is a key factor for a successful outcome in Demonologist. Unlike Phasmophobia, where the primary goal is identification, players must also exorcise the spirit before departing from the haunted area. Failing to exorcise the correct entity could spell disaster for your game progress.

Each ghost type produces specific evidence, which players must collect, assess, and interpret to confirm the ghost’s identity. There are 7 categories at your disposal to help classify the collected evidence: Spirit Box Response, Fingerprints, Ectoplasm Stains, EMF, ESG, Easel Canvas Drawings, and Freezing Temperatures (thermometer). The ghost type you ultimately encounter will correspond to the evidence categories that match your findings.
