Ever since the cancellation of P.T. officially known as Silent Hills, which we had incredibly high hope for (we’re still bitter Konami), I’ve been hoping for a truly astonishing horror title to wet my appetite. Of course we are over the top excited for the upcoming Outlast 2 after the astonishing romp through the original and the Whistleblower DLC, however there is another horror experience coming very soon which has some great potential.
Prepare to bath in terror (in my most sinister Wes Craven voice). In Layers of Fear players dive deep into the fragile psyche of a tormented painter as he fruitlessly battles his inner demons and troubled past to put onto canvas his crowning achievement. Layers of Fear, developed by the masters of terror at Bloober Team and published by Aspyr Media, will debut in February 16, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
“As soon as we got our hands on the game via Steam Early Access and saw the ravenous community feedback, we wanted to be a part of sharing this game with the world,” said Aspyr Media’s vice president of publishing, Elizabeth Howard. “Many game developers pour their blood, sweat and tears into creating great games, but the folks at Bloober Team brought a new meaning to this term while creating Layers of Fear. It’s truly been a blast working with a group so dedicated to the craft of beautifully scaring the sh!t out of people, and adding in our own flavor of insanity.”
“We can’t wait to finally show the world the full scope of our masterpiece of fear,” said Piotr Babieno, chief executive officer at Bloober Team. “And we’re glad that there are other people who share our enthusiasm. Working with Aspyr is pure pleasure! They immediately got what we were trying to achieve with ‘Layers of Fear’ and happily dived into our world of madness.”
