Randy Pitchford Claims Troy Baker Turned Down Role in Borderlands 3

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has spoken out about Troy Baker’s decision not to reprise the role of Rhys in Borderlands 3—refuting Baker’s claim to not have known about the character’s return.

According to Pitchford, the choice was Baker’s all along.

In response to a question from a fan on Twitter asking why Baker had been replaced, Pitchford says Baker himself turned down the role:

The situation certainly is confusing. Neither party has any particular motivation to lie about what happened, so a simple case of miscommunication might be to blame.

Still, as Pitchford implies, the change is unlikely to affect much, so fans will just have to wait until Borderlands 3’s release later this year to see what that means.

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.
