Scheduled for a June release, Layers of Fear gets its first detailed gameplay video. they are 11-minute exploration of a house with an oppressive atmosphere and strange things happeningall within the framework of the franchise.
The horror of the Layers of Fear franchise is different from that of games like Resident Evil, Dead Space, or Silent Hill. The franchise isn’t full of monsters to face or have complex defense mechanisms, for example. The main challenge is solving puzzles, as well as having to deal with psychological terror.
Layers of Fear is being developed on Unreal Engine 5, and will support technologies such as ray tracing, HDR, 4K, and a lot of use of volumetric lighting, a common graphic resource in this type of game (those beams of light that go through holes or enter through the window are some examples), and “graphics as realistic as possible”.
“Layers of Fears is a first-person chronicle of psychedelic horror focused on haunting exploration and immersive storytelling. The game builds on the foundations of Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear 2, with new gameplay direction and an incredible story “.
New Layers of Fear is a merger of the other two titles
In an interview earlier this year, Anna Jasinska, Marketing Director of Bloober Team, said that the title is not about Layers of Fear 3. According to her, the new game brings an unprecedented concept that mixes the best elements from the past of the series with new mechanics and an unprecedented narrative line.
“We combined the best things and created a complete and definitive story for the entire Layers franchise. Something like this has never happened before in the gaming industry, and we call it a ‘reimagining,’” Jasinska explained. According to her, Layers of Fears will bridge the gaps between the stories of previous games, showing how two plots with no apparent relationship end up connecting.
Initially called “Layers of Fears” (with fear in the plural), the studio decided to return to its original name (dropping the “S” from “Fear”) due to fan feedback. “By adding the ‘s’, we wanted to emphasize that this game is based on the original games,” the studio explained at the time.
Layer of Fear arrives in June, still without a specific date, for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
