In 2016 Bloober Team released Layers of Fear, a psychological horror game which helped put the Polish video game studio on the map. Since then, the team have worked on all manner of games, from a sequel (Layers of Fear 2) to a licensed game (Blair Witch) to a brand new IP (The Medium). Now, the team is going back to its roots, announcing ‘Layers of Fears’.
Layers of Fears is the 3rd entry in the psychological horror franchise created and developed by Bloober Team. Releasing in Early 2023 for PS5, Series X|S and PC, the game will have you “Face spine-chilling madness that extends over generations. Live through indescribable terrors as artists obsessed with their crafts beyond reason and sanity. Layers of Fears is a psychedelic horror chronicle for those who seek mature stories with hidden meanings.”
For some, Bloober Teams games are hit and miss; for others, each game manages to hit the perfect sweet spot. Regardless of where you land on this scale, there is no denying that Layers of Fears looks to be the most visually impressive and high budget game to come from the studio. This is undoubtedly aided by the use of Unreal Engine 5, supporting “Ray Tracing, HDR effect, 4K resolution, and [making] use of the Lumen system to offer the most immersive and visceral horror experience.”
Bloober Team is rumoured to be working on a Silent Hill game, and so all eyes will be on Layers of Fears to see whether the studio has the chops to help revive the long-dormant survival horror franchise. We will have to wait and see.
