Bloober Team (Medium, Observer System Redux, Blair Witch) has given a new gameplay video for its upcoming Layers of Fear remake. The new video provides some familiar sights while showcasing a newly unveiled character and how the game will look. The Layers of Fear remake is built using Unreal Engine 5 and will feature Lumen, Ray Tracing, HDR, volumetric lighting, and Niagra light rendering. The developers appear to have attempted to keep as much of the look and design of the original 2016 game while updating it for modern technology while adding a few new things along the way. Layers of Fear releases for PC and next-gen consoles in June 2023.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
