Horror fans are in for a treat (and hopefully no trick) with Halloween just around the corner as Cracow, Poland-based developer Bloober Team has teamed up with Gun Media, publisher of Friday the 13th: The Game.
This new collaboration will see the upcoming release of Layers of Fear 2, the sequel to the best-selling 2016 multiplatform horror experience Layers of Fear, with voice acting led by award winning horror icon Tony Todd.
Layers Of Fear 2 will follow Bloober Team’s previous cyberpunk-horror game Observer, which featured none other than actor Rutger Hauer in the role of the main character.
President Wes Keltner of Gun Media had this to say about the newly announced partnership:
This collaboration between Gun and Bloober team is a perfect pairing. Our collective passion for crafting memorable and terrifying experiences lines up so well, and both teams have an encyclopedic knowledge of horror. Add in the fact that the iconic Tony Todd is lending his commanding voice to this project, and I truly think we are creating a new masterpiece here.
Set on a desolate ship, Layers of Fear 2 will rely on the claustrophobic, ever-changing environments to keep players in the dark, never knowing what horror to expect around every corner and through every door.
The feeling of uneasiness and terror will be enhanced by influences from classic cinematography ranging from the experimental works of Georges Méliès to the twists and turns used by Alfred Hitchcock.
Although there is no specific release date announced yet, Layers of Fear 2 is expected to release in 2019. A teaser trailer can be seen below, and Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno added:
Revealing Layers of Fear 2 alongside the horror aficionados at Gun Media is an unprecedented moment. This partnership secures a passion for horror not yet seen on the market and puts a seal of quality on the game, to which no horror fan should remain indifferent.
