Layers of Fear 2 is releasing sometime later this year, and it won’t be a pleasant time. It won’t be relaxing or peaceful or hospitable. Fortunately, the people who are eagerly awaiting Layers of Fear 2 don’t want or expect any of those qualities.
Bloober Team has shared the official 13-minute gameplay demo that was playable at PAX East this past weekend. It’s a trip. It gets stressful within seconds, and it gets creepy within a couple minutes. Layers of Fear 2 seems like a masterclass in atmospheric tension and dread.
This is a small sample size, however. Bloober Team has said Layers of Fear 2 will be approximately twice as long as its predecessor, putting it somewhere in the 8-10 hour range. Even the strongest of nerves will become unsteeled.
