Game news Bloober Team (Layers of Fear) announce their new horror game (and it’s not Silent Hill 2) at Summer Game Fest 2022
The Polish studio had given us (implicitly) an appointment at the Summer Game Fest and indeed, the whole world had the opportunity to see its brand new production. No, it’s not a remake of Silent Hill 2, but Layers of Fear 3.
Layers of Fear 3, without the 3
We were telling you about it earlier in the week: Bloober Team was doing a great teaser for its brand new game and the theories were going well. Remake of Silent Hill 2, as rumor has it, or new Layers of Fear? The opening ceremony of the Summer Game Fest 2022 will have allowed us to see more clearly and it is indeed this last possibility in question: Layers of Fear 3 was formalized this evening with a brand new trailer.
Nevertheless, note that the game is simply called Layers of Fear (without the number, therefore) although it is a brand new app.
The brand new horror
For this horrifying new experience, the Poles turned to the Unreal Engine 5Epic Games’ brand new engine widely acclaimed by the gaming industry. The very first trailer (to be enjoyed above) actually sets the tone and the adventure promises to be technically delightfulsometimes close to photorealism.
As for the concept itself, the formula is not changed one iota: it’s still a psychological horror game, playing with players’ nerves a lot thanks to a whole bunch of tricks. Narrow corridors, a supernatural and suffocating atmosphere, a few well-placed jumpscares… No surprise, but after all, it’s probably what we expected.
Layers of Fear will release “early 2023” on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
