Layers of Fear looks ridiculous on PS5 in the Unreal Engine 5 demo
Layers of Fear might be one of the most confusing projects of the past few years, but it sure is looking good. The Unreal Engine 5 reinterpretation harks back to all previous entries in the series and concludes the story with an additional chapter called The Writer. “The crowning achievement of the series is the definitive opportunity to experience the critically acclaimed franchise,” the official blurb attempts to explain.
In fact, this remastered version will retell the story of The Painter from Layers of Fear (the PS4 original) and The Director from Layers of Fear 2, using new technologies like ray tracing, HDR and 4K resolution. It will include all previously released DLC plots and will feature an entirely new section to pull it all together. “Enter a lonely and spooky lighthouse as the newest protagonist, The Writer, and discover a story never told before,” adds the synopsis.
It admittedly looks more like the same walking simulator-style spooks that fans are already familiar with – but it’s probably fair to say the production values have gone through the roof. Fancy another fright-fest from the Bloober team? Try not to jump into the comments section below and consider adding the title to yours PS store Wishlist ahead of June release.
