The Outsiders, a developer that has former Battlefield: Bad Company 2 designer David Goldfarb amongst its ranks, has released another screenshot for its mysterious monster-based horror, Project Wight.

Previously, the developer has dropped an enticing trailer and some gorgeous concept art for the title, but the game is still somewhat of a mysterious entity. The game’s first character design dropped last June, but now, via Twitter, the developer has released another screenshot:

The tweet has, perhaps, teased some of the game’s story, too. The text reads: “Dream of beautiful things beneath the earth while you can, little ones. The world is cruel. And men are crueler.”

While the screenshot offers little more than tantalizing hints, Goldfarb has suggested that a fresh showing of the game will be made in the near future:

Project Wight has previously been posited  as a Viking monster game where players will need to defend themselves from the encroaching world of man. Re-visit the game’s 2017 trailer below:

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.
