Bloober Team has revealed the launch date for its long-in-development release, Layers of Fear — The highly technical psychological horror title will launch on PC and Gen9 platforms on June 15, with a time-limited demo available to play on PC from now until May 22.

Built in Unreal 5 for MAXIMUM TERROR, Layers of Fear is a remade compendium of both Layers of Fear (2016) and Layers of Fear 2 (2019), along with all previously released DLC and a brand new concluding chapter, titled The Writer. Developer Anshar Studios is hoping that the incredible technical acumen of Unreal 5 will allow for a truly immersive and unsettling experience, as players pick their way through a shifting environment — trapped, lost, and attacked by no less than the twisted mind of the self.

“We are thrilled to announce the release date for Layers of Fear and to bring this definitive horror experience to players,” writes Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno. “With the power of Unreal Engine 5, we’ve been able to create a game that visually surpasses our previous works, delivering an unforgettable journey into the minds of tormented artists. We are excited for both new and returning players to jump in.”

Bloober Team also released the PC requirements, which you can check out above.

The demo will give fans an opportunity to check that their rig is up to handling the high visual standards of this new edition, which utilizes 4K resolution, HDR, and Ray-Tracing, while also enhancing its lighting, reflection, and particle techniques with some of the most modern graphics tools available. Dedicated Layers of Fear fans will be able to enjoy new mechanics and twists on the original gameplay, while newcomers can experience the entire story of both titles and their DLC expansions seamlessly branched together.

It’s too scary for me, is what I’m basically saying.

Layers of Fear launches June 15 on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X.
