Featuring the original Layers of Fear, Layers of Fear 2, as well as all DLC’s (including a new chapter entitled “The Final Note” that provides an alternate perspective on the first game’s storyline), Layers of Fear will also introduce the never-before-told story of The Writer, a harrowing tale that ties each entry in the series together.

Built on Unreal Engine 5, Layers of Fear (2023) supports Ray Tracing, HDR and 4K resolution, making use of the Lumen system to achieve superb graphical fidelity and create a meticulously-refined horror journey that’s as immersive as it is frightening.

Layers Of Fear will be the complete, definitive and at the same time unpredictable way to discover the stories of artists enslaved by their obsessions. Prepare for an exquisite horror experience thanks to the expanded plot lines that will cast a new light on the overarching narrative.

Bloober Team and Anshar Studios debuted a new, cinematic story trailer at the Future Games Show today, depicting the story of The Writer, the recently introduced a new protagonist in the series.

Hers is a harrowing tale that ties each entry in the series together. Showcasing a mysterious lighthouse and alluding to past horrors, this trailer invites players to gain a glimpse of the terrors that await them when the game launches.

We are thus closing an important chapter in our history, and are very much interested in general feedback from the Layers of Fear community. We hope that fans of the series—as well as new players—will enjoy the unique atmosphere of the game and immerse themselves fully in it. We wish you great fun, as much as we were having during the development process!”
