Developer Bloober Team has just showcased a substantial chunk of gameplay from its Unreal Engine 5 remake of Layers of Fear, with more than 10 minutes of footage to scare us with. The team is taking liberties with its 2023 reimagining of the series, with this clip showing off the game's lighthouse location - an all-new play space included in the remake.

What's more, this current-gen version of Layers of Fear actually includes Layers of Fear 2 and all franchise DLC too, so the remake works as a collection-of-sorts as well. Here's a list of the game's new features, straight from developer Bloober Team:

  • The Ultimate Layers of Fear Experience - The series’s crowning work casts an overarching narrative over the entire franchise.

  • Horror Reimagined - Everything in the Layers of Fear series melds together into a single experience, including all DLCs, so players can find all the answers they seek.

  • Shocking New Looks - Enhanced with Unreal Engine 5’s improved technology. This version offers a more immersive horror experience with the addition of Ray Tracing, HDR, 4K resolution, and the Lumen system.

  • Psychological Horror - A grim but gripping first-person psychedelic horror game focused on tense exploration, puzzle-solving, and immersive storytelling. Discover what lies in the depths of the human psyche with this mature, cathartic game.

  • New tricks - New brand-new core mechanics that will be introduced to Layers of Fear and its sequel, as well as additional features, so all the chapters and stories will blend seamlessly.

  • Horror Through the Many Lenses of Art – Explore the depths of obsession with three different stories of craft-obsessed protagonists (The Painter, The Actor and The Writer) which are interwoven to create a truly immersive experience and gripping storyline.

  • Classical, Ominous Soundtrack - Hauntingly beautiful soundtrack composed by the highly-acclaimed musician Arek Reikowski. He has composed a hypnotic score that adds an extra layer of tension to the game and will leave you on the edge of your seat.
