Bloober Team’s breakout horror game is now playable anytime and anywhere. Layers of Fear VR has launched for the Oculus Quest.
Available now for $19.99 on the Oculus Store, Bloober Team brings their 2016 psychological horror tale to the standalone VR headset, reworked to take advantage of the additional layers of interactivity and immersion afforded to it by the medium. Layers of Fear VR previously released on Windows PCs, and before that, a streamlined version of the game called Layer of Fear: Solitude for the now defunct Google Daydream.
“After a successful reception of Layers of Fear VR on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, it was only natural to bring the game to Oculus Quest. The standalone nature of the headset allows for even greater immersion and I believe Layers of Fear VR is now scarier than ever before. Having said that, we have even more in store planned for VR fans” said Piotr Babieno, Bloober Team CEO.
Layers of Fear sets players in a Victorian-era mansion where they’re forced to endure nightmare after nightmare while trying to piece together the tragic past of a painter. I’ve yet to play the VR version, but I imagine the perspective pairs very well with Blooder Team’s penchant for imaginative and surreal visuals in their games. Here’s hoping after they release Observer System Redux that they treat us with a VR version of that game as well.
