The Layers of Fear UE5 demo has arrived, full game releases in June

Last week, Blooper Team announced that it would be releasing a demo for Layers of Fear, the remake of the original game built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5, making use of some of the engine's unique features like Nanite and Lumen technology. Now, that demo is freely available and the full game finally has a proper release date.

The Layers of Fear UE5 technical demo is available now on Steam, providing a small look at the game in action. I've already had a chance to play it on a PC with an RTX 3070 Ti and an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU with 16GB of RAM. It isn't the most up-to-date system and has struggled with some newer releases. However, in Layers of Fear, my PC handled everything at max settings, even with RT enabled, with a near flawless frame rate often locking to 120Hz with DLSS Quality mode enabled at 1440p resolution. Here are a few screenshots:

Alongside the demo, the game's official release date was also announced. Previously, we only had confirmation that the game would be available in June. Now the date is official – Layers of Fear is releasing on the 15th of June for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5.

As a reminder, here are the PC system requirements:

The Layers of Fear remake reimagines the original game and its DLCs, alongside Layers of Fear 2, all in one package. A new original chapter set in a Lighthouse with a brand-new character is also included in the game.

KitGuru Says: I was pretty impressed with the performance, albeit with DLSS 2 enabled. Have you tried the Layers of Fear demo? What do you think of the game so far?
