Phoenix Point

Phoenix Point has suffered another delay, though this time the wait will not be too much longer.

During a development update video posted to the Phoenix Point YouTube channel, Creative Director Julian Gallop announced that the game will see a three-month delay. Now, the X-COM spiritual successor is planned to launch sometime in September.

Be sure to check up on the full video down below.

Gallop was one of the primary forces behind the original X-COM, so his upcoming science-fiction strategy game has many excited. Just a few weeks ago, the game’s developer Snapshot Games talked a bit about some new mechanics to expect come September.

Phoenix Point is planned to hit Mac, PC, and Xbox One.

Today’s delay is nothing to dread, so keep up with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube until the game launches.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Published

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.
