Bloober Team’s silver-screen-themed follow-up to 2016’s wonderful haunted house horror, Layers of Fear 2, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on May 28th.
While the original Layers of Fear charted the mental disintegration of a successful painter, locked away in the ever-changing corridors of his sprawling gothic mansion, its sequel takes aim at a different kind of art form. This time around, players take on the role of a fading Hollywood actor, summoned aboard a glorious Art Deco ocean liner by an enigmatic movie director who seems to know a little to much.
“Your past has helped to mold you into what you are, forced upon you the skills required to hone your craft,” explains Bloober Team, “That same past has scraped deep furrowing scars into you, not on the outside where the world can see, but in a place buried so deep within that it has become shapeless. You push those memories down but let the experiences drive you into who, or what, you must play.”
