Today Vaulted Sky Games and Coffee Stain, publisher of Valheim, Deep Rock Galactic and Goat Simulator, are excited to celebrate the first anniversary of Midnight Ghost Hunt’s release with its latest update, filled with a slew of party props and quality of life changes. With a 66% off sale and Free Weekend as well, now is the perfect time to join the hunt!
Following the addition of host migration capabilities, this update marks the long-awaited arrival of dedicated server support. Whilst peer-to-peer will still be an option, players can also now choose between user hosted servers or the “official” 24/7 dedicated servers run by the development team across 3 regions, for more stability and improved performance.
Whether Ghost or Hunter, there’s no escaping the merriment! All the maps have been adorned with party decorations for this very special occasion, making the usual hide and seek chaos of this ultimate prop hunt feel eerily cheery. Amongst the litter of gifts are the new Disruptor Hunter skin, perfect for close-quarters brawling, and the spooky new Returned Ghost skin, which takes on the form of a vengeful dead Hunter.
But what’s a birthday without cake? Ghosts can possess the new chomping birthday cake Hero Prop to chomp on Hunters and spit them out, dealing damage as they go. In another first, birthday-themed weapon and gadget skins are now available! Celebrations are sure to go off with a bang, whether players are gifting a C4 present or lobbing a cupcake grenade.
As a birthday surprise to the community, Midnight Ghost Hunt’s ambient soundtrack, by composer-producer duo Ghostwood Empire, is now available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and other streaming services. All eleven tracks can also be bought via the game’s Steam page, which include some additional exclusive recordings!
“I can’t believe how this year has flown by, and we couldn’t have made Midnight Ghost Hunt what it is today without all of the feedback we’ve received during Early Access,” said Sam Malone, Midnight Ghost Hunt Creator and Lead Developer. “Every update and addition has been driven by the players, and I’m so proud of the game we have now as a result.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating the first anniversary of Midnight Ghost Hunt,” said Robin Cederholm, Executive Producer at Coffee Stain Publishing. “We are so grateful for the amazing community that’s built around the game and we want to thank you all for your support as the game has grown!”
Midnight Ghost Hunt launched into Steam Early Access one year ago to universal acclaim and is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99, but players can put their hide-and-seek skills to the test with the Free Weekend until April 3rd and join the hunt for two thirds off until April 6th!
The Midnight Ghost Hunt soundtrack is available to purchase here, and stream on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and more.
