Layers of Fear is back with a sequel that will be making its way to gamers next month! Layers of Fear 2 promises to uphold what made the first psychological horror thriller so great with the return of acclaimed Tony Todd.
The highly anticipated sequel comes from Gun Media and Bloober Team, the team that gave us the cyberpunk take on horror with Observer. The follow-up title will be officially making its debut on May 28th, promising a horror adventure meant for the ages.
According to the game’s official listing on Steam, “The cameras are all focused on you; the center of the scene. Not just in character, you are the character. The part to play is singularly yours. Written just for you.You are met with silence. No barking orders from the director. No call to action that you need to become this version of yourself. The demand to act fills your mind, but the script pages hold no words.
Your past has helped to mold you into what you are, forced upon you the skills required to hone your craft. That same past has scraped deep furrowing scars into you, not on the outside where the world can see, but in a place buried so deep within that it has become shapeless. You push those memories down but let the experiences drive you into who, or what, you must play.”
With nothing but the sound of your heartbeat and the crushing waves crashing against the hull, Layers of Fear 2 aims to amp up the horror that the first one was so well-known for.
Other features of the game include:
- Story-driven exploration – You must explore the world around you. Discover your past, and expose the reason for your having been cast for this film.
- Psychological horror – Is this part of the film, or are your memories playing tricks on you? Your world may change with the slightest of provocations, you must decide what is real.
- Ocean Liner setting – Your explorations into the depths of the ship that play the scenes for the film become ever more incredible, and ever more terrifying.
- Classical, ominous soundtrack – An original score composed by Arkadiusz Reikowski, conducted by George Strezov, and performed by the Sofia Session Orchestra
Layers of Fear 2 is officially coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC through Steam on May 28th. Are you ready?
