Layers of Fear 2

Bloober Team has delved into some of the inspirations and intentions of its upcoming horror sequel Layers of Fear 2 promising that the new film theme will “enrich the franchise.”

The game’s new development diary (embedded below) reveals that the creative team has drawn inspiration from “the history of cinema, from George Méliès to contemporary film.”

Players take the role of an actor who signs up for an ambitious new film aboard a transatlantic ocean liner. Bloober Team’s Lead Designer and Producer Bartosz Kaproń says that the choice of protagonist was a “defining moment in development,” as it enabled a clear connection to the game’s themes of identity.

While the setting and premise of Layers of Fear 2 therefore represent a significant departure from its predecessor, the team is aiming to ensure the return of the most well-received features, including “the dark, claustrophobic interiors, the shifting environments, as well as a rich multi-layered story.”

OnlySP’s Benjamin James reviewed the first game on its release back in 2016, finding it to be “a worthwhile trip for all kinds of traditional horror fans and gamers alike.”

Layers of Fear 2 is currently without a launch date, though it is expected to arrive some time this year.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
