It feels like a new kind of horror could be on the way to us all with Layers Of Fears. That is based on the taglines that Bloober Team has had out there for the game but also the way things are starting to look here out of Gamescom. Yes, this means we have a new trailer for Layers Of Fears to show off a bit of the story and just how it is all going to be fully upgraded to make things more of a scream-fest than we had with the previous titles in the IP. Even if it is all starting to feel like a solid remake just for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC at this point here. That is just based on how little that has been out there so far, though.
As you can see in the following video we have for Layers Of Fears, the team is leaning into trying to get things looking a bit more photorealistic with UE5 and all of the new features that engine is starting to perfect. It also looks and sounds like we will be playing around with the Painter's Wife here and that music might play a larger role in the game this time. That is if we go with all of the piano talk here and how it felt like it was supposed to play a larger role originally too. I am sure that we will not find out until Layers Of Fears launches, but that is going to be a good thing. That way we can make sure all of the frights are well-earned and not just a bunch of humans pretending to be scared for your entertainment.
