The horror sequel finally comes out next month.
The sequel to the acclaimed indie 2016 horror game, Layers of Fears 2 finally has a release date set for next month. Publisher Gun Media and developer Bloober Team have announced that the game comes out at the end of May- on the 28th, to be precise. We don’t know a huge amount about it, but the bits and pieces we’ve been shown will be very familiar to fans of the first game.
Set on a ship and following a new set of characters (the game is not a direct narrative follow-up to the original), Layers of Fear 2 will have a focus on films as opposed to the art and paintings that took centerstage in the first game, with the main character being an actor named Jimmy. You can see from the gameplay demo showed earlier in the year that the developers are aiming for the same unsettling environments and feel. They also promise a longer experience, with a runtime that is said to be 9 to 10 hours.
Layers of Fear 2 will release on May 28th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
