Bloober Team has released some brand-new gameplay for its upcoming Layers of Fear horror game which is set to launch in June. The so-called “gameplay walkthrough” showcases the story from the eyes of the Painter from the original Layers of Fear game. There’s also The Writer who is a new character which was recently confirmed in the game.
Bloober Team says the gameplay focuses on The Writer as she entered a ghastly lighthouse to uncover an untold story that links all the Layers’ characters and events together.

“Unravel secrets, solve puzzles, and face the threats of the old Mansion that can only be solved with a lantern – a new and essential tool to confront the nightmares in the game!”
Layers of Fear is not only the last game in the series and aims to tie up all the loose ends but the game is also anticipated from a technical point of view too. It has been built on Unreal Engine 5 and features some of the latest tech to come with the engine. This includes Lumen, raytracing, HDR, volumetric lighting, Niagara and more. Bloober Team says the engine has allowed the studio to create visuals as lifelike as possible.
You can see from the gameplay below, that Layers of Fear is definitely looking great. There are loads of advanced lighting systems at work which all create a pretty fantastic-looking game. Layers of Fear doesn’t have a release date just yet but Bloober Team says it will release sometime in June for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
