Troy Baker Not Returning to Reprise Rhys in Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3

Troy Baker has no plans to join the cast of Borderlands 3, at least as a fan favorite character from Tales from the Borderlands.

During a panel at Melbourne convention Supanova, a fan asked Baker if he would be reprising the role of Rhys. For those unfamiliar with the spin-off character, Rhys was one of the protagonists of Telltale’s short-lived Borderlands series.

Baker actually had quite a few thoughts on the matter, as he was not informed he would not return to play the character until he saw Rhys’s quick appearance in the Borderlands 3‘s debut trailer.

“I really want Gearbox to know that if they are going to bring back characters from Tales from the Borderlands, it should be with the people who originated the characters. They should not recast willy-nilly because, as a fan, that matters to me.”

Gearbox has yet to confirm who will take up the hero’s mantle or what Rhys’s role is in Borderlands 3.

Until more is known, keep an eye on OnlySP’s FacebookTwitter, and YouTube before the game launches September 13.

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.
