The Bloober Team has announced that its 2016 psychological horror game Layers of Fear is coming to PlayStation VR on April 29th.
Layers of Fear VR is currently available for Oculus headphones and HTC Vive, but the PSVR port is another way to test your steel nerves. In a press release, Bloober Team says the port is “a continuation of the company’s strategy to move its quality horror games to popular Virtual Reality platforms,” suggesting we could see more of its games coming to VR. Blair Witch was launched at Oculus Quest last October, and it sounds like a good chance that we’ll see a PSVR version of that game as well, and maybe even The Medium VR further.
It’s a well-known fact that games are ten times scarier in VR, so I can only imagine Layers of Fear, a game we called in our review “a psychological horror experience that messes up your head in a far more disturbing way than any monster that popping “behind the curtain,” would be extremely traumatic.But that’s half the fun, isn’t it? Frightened mindlessly and not worrying about the consequences until therapy.
Anyway, Bloober Team is also working on something completely new after last year’s The Medium. We don’t know much about the next studio project, but it obviously comes from a “very famous” publisher. We also know from recent job lists that they will have a greater focus on fighting than recent studio games, and that they will continue to be rooted in horror.
