Hollow Knight

An unveiling for some upcoming Hollow Knight DLC is taking place February 14.

Team Cherry announced on Twitter that it will be giving players their first look at the latest DLC for its critical darling, Hollow Knight. This is the first paid DLC for Hollow Knight and will focus on Hornet, a character from the base game. The content has been in the works since the game was still in development, as it was originally a Kickstarter goal.

Not much has been revealed about the DLC other than this synopsis of the plot from Team Cherry’s December blog post:

“Sharpe is a hunter from a distant land. He’s tasked with eliminating Hornet and he’s not come alone. Sharpe brings companions on his deadly quest. Who are they? And why are they pursuing Hornet? We’ll leave you to guess at their full nature. Just know, Hornet’s gonna be fighting for her life against this highly trained trio.”

So far, Team Cherry has released quite a bit of free content for Hollow Knight players through a number of updates.

Hollow Knight is currently available for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Keep checking in with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube for more information before February 14 rolls around.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
