Layers of Fear VR

Wanted to be scared? Good, then Layers of Fear can help you with that. Wanted to be scared in VR? Then even better news, as Bloober Team has announced Layers of Fear VR, which will be coming soon to give you a nice spooky treat.

The game follows an artist as he slowly goes mad. While he's attempting to create his magnum opus, he begins to experience fear and anger, spiraling him down into weird visions and self-destruction. Naturally, you'll have to avoid some monsters and solve some puzzles along the way. Now in VR, you can feel like it's actually you going mad. It should be noted that Layers of Fear VR will only include the original game and not its story DLC pack that follows the artist's daughter as she attempts to figure out what happened to her dad.

Horror has always made a good companion for VR. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard used PlayStation VR to successfully get players involved in the game's horror elements, and give them a scare. It's probably the most famous example of taking an already created game, and using VR to enhance it. Other games that have made the transition from normal to VR have included SkyrimBorderlands 2, and L.A. Noire.

Layers of Fear, and this VR version, are developed by Bloober Team. Recently they put out horror game Blair Witch, and also worked on sci-fi horror adventure game Observer. They also made puzzle platformer series A-Men and multiplayer party game Brawl.

Layers of Fear VR will be coming soon to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. There's currently no word on a PlayStation VR version.
