As reported by Gaming Everything, the SONY Entertainment Japan announced the total sales figures for Uncharted reached 14 million units. That includes all 3 instalments from main franchise on the PS3 platform as well recently released Uncharted: Golden Abyss on PlayStation VITA.

Those are pretty good results given the fact Uncharted is platform exclusive, however its commercial success brings me to doubts, given how praised the game is, for its quality and innovation among the community. It seems like the success doesn’t always translate onto the commercial sales, or perhaps is it the fact that the game is slightly overhyped and overrated. Nonetheless let’s hope Naughty Dog continues to deliver it’s best and let’s hope future games will receive good reception as well.

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.
