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.
