Bloober Team recently released new footage from their upcoming game Layers of Fear! Even though they mostly showcased the technology that are using. Bringing the game’s atmosphere and visuals to life, like Unreal Engines 5’s Lumen, a real time global illumination technology. A short gameplay video playing as the new character The Writer and The Painter from the original game. This gives the opportunity to list some things we could expect from the new installment.
Layers of Fear Remake or Reimagine
In the description of the steam page has a short description of the content that the game will include. The game will include the stories from the previous games and DLCs and two brand-new DLCs. The first DLC, called “The Final Note”, we will get a new perspective on The Painter’s story. The second, called “The Lighthouse Chapter: Link the Layers” where we will get to play as The Writer at an abandoned lighthouse. The chapter seems to serve to connect all the different storylines after we get to experience them one more time.
What to expect
What we can expect from this game is something familiar but very special, going all out regarding the story or rather the stories they want to retell with a fresh take. By adding two new stories, they will bring everything together and elevate the experience. This is also an opportunity to improve and refine the stories. That way making any potential plot holes or inconsistencies they have missed gets covered.
They could also set the stage for the next story or stories they might want to tell in a future Layers of Fear game. Now Bloober Team is also developing the remake of Silent Hill 2 one of, if not the best horror games ever made. So I highly doubt we will hear any future plans about the next installment any time soon after the release. Layers of Fear is scheduled to launch June 2023 on PS5, XBOX Series X/S and PC (Steam and Epic Games Store).
