Bloober Team has just released a brand new trailer for the latest entry in the Layers of Fear series titled simply Layers of Fear. In the game, players must enter a lone and ghastly lighthouse and discover a never-told-before tale that ties the whole series together.
Layers of Fear (2023) is the crowning work of the Layers series that features 2016’s Layers of Fear, along with its expansion Inheritance and the later sequel Layers of Fear 2. In the upcoming game, players will experience new game mechanics, new scares, and a new chapter titled “The Final Note” that expands on the story of the original Layers of Fear through the perspective of the antagonist, the Painter’s wife.
All stories must come to an end, even twisted and eerie ones. The canvas awaits its final brushstrokes. The stage calls for its lead actor. The novel needs its final chapter. It’s time to face your fears. One. Last. Time.
The series that defined narrative-focused first-person psychological horror is back to tell its last spine-chilling story with Layers of Fear. The series’ crowning work is the definitive way to experience the critically acclaimed franchise as it features Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear 2, as well as all downloadable content (including the new downloadable content “The Final Note” that will give you a new perspective on the Layers of Fear storyline) and the never-before-told story of The Writer, which will tie everything together.
The Ultimate Layers of Fear Experience – The series’s crowning work casts an overarching narrative over the entire franchise.
Horror Reimagined – Everything in the Layers of Fear series melds together into a single experience, including all DLCs, so players can find all the answers they seek.

Psychological Horror – A grim but gripping first-person psychedelic horror game focused on tense exploration, puzzle-solving, and immersive storytelling. Discover what lies in the depths of the human psyche with this mature, cathartic game.
New tricks – New brand-new core mechanics that will be introduced to Layers of Fear and its sequel, as well as additional features, so all the chapters and stories will blend seamlessly
Horror Through the Many Lenses of Art – Explore the depths of obsession with three different stories of craft-obsessed protagonists (The Painter, The Actor, and The Writer) which are interwoven to create a truly immersive experience and gripping storyline
Classical, Ominous Soundtrack – Hauntingly beautiful soundtrack composed by the highly-acclaimed musician Arek Reikowski. He has composed a hypnotic score that adds an extra layer of tension to the game and will leave you on the edge of your seat
