The Bloober Team announced during the Summer Game Fest showcase that they are working on a new entry in their first-person psychological horror series Layers of Fear.
Layers of Fears, as the sequel is called, was announced with a world premiere trailer during the showcase and, according to developer (opens in new tab)is “a new game built on the foundations of Layers of Fear, Layers of Fear: Inheritance and Layers of Fear 2 with a surprising new story and gameplay direction”.
This new “horror chronicle” revisits the painter from the original game, with his wife once again seemingly as the antagonist. Check out the trailer below:
Built on Unreal Engine 5, Layers of Fears will support ray tracing, HDR, 4K and “will make use of the Lumen system to deliver the most immersive and visceral horror experience”.
In the YouTube description for the next entry in the series, Bloober Teams says:
“Layers of Fears will be the complete, definitive and at the same time unpredictable way to discover the stories of artists enslaved by their obsessions. Get ready for an exquisite horror experience thanks to expanded plots that will shed new light on the overarching narrative.
The announcement of Layers of Fears apparently puts a stop to rumors that the developer was working on an unconfirmed Silent Hill 2 Remake, which is a shame as the two could have been a frighteningly good combination. (opens in new tab).
Layers of Fears is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC in early 2023.
