Layers of Fear VR, live action launch trailer for the game on PlayStation VR

Layers of Fear VR

Layers of Fear VR is available on PS4 for owners of the PlayStation VR headset, and Bloober Team wanted to accompany the launch of the game with a surprising live action trailer.

Announced in April, Layers of Fear VR also brings to the Sony console the virtual reality experience that PC users could experience long ago, able to make the horror game even more immersive.

Trapped inside a Victorian-style mansion, as fascinating as it is disturbing, we will have to investigate the life and death of the insane painter who owned the building, and who hid his secrets in this place.

Ours will be a real journey into the sick mind of this man, between visions and fear: a painful but necessary path to understand what the artist was working on and try to somehow complete his latest work.

“When we first announced Layers of Fear VR, many of our fans contacted us asking for a PSVR version. Today we can tell that their voices have been heard” – says Piotr Babieno, Bloober Team CEO. “It’s also all a part of our wider strategy. For the last couple of years, we’ve been bringing the best of our horror games to additional platforms, including VR headsets, so more players can feel chills on their spines regardless of what hardware they own.
