Layers Of Fear 2 Release Dated For May 28th

Gun Media, the publisher of Layers of Fear 2 announced that the game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, come 28 May 2019. It will be developed by Bloober Team and will follow up on the story of the original game.

Bloober Team went through a slight name change, on Steam at least, but they developed the original Layers of Fear and will be the developers of the sequel. The publisher has, however, changed from Aspyr who published another Bloober’s acclaimed game, Observer, to Gun Media.

In that game, we played as a painter, striving to finish a particular painting while also struggling with his growing insanity. The game was diversified with moments of intense action, where the environment changed in unpredictable, often baffling ways.

The game has been in development for at least a year and a half, with the developers informing back in spring 2018 about joining forces with publisher Gun Media. We also know the game will feature the actor Tony Todd (Candyman, The Crow), and, like the original, will be released for the PC, XOne and PS4. If you’re interested in the game and play PC, you might want to get to know the official system requirements:

Layers of Fear 2 Minimum System Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8150 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 5 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Radeon R7 260X
  • API: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 14 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Layers of Fear 2 Recommended System Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 8 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
  • API: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 14 GB Available Hard Drive Space

The system requirements for Layers of Fear 2 represent a sizeable leap over the original, although it’s been almost three years so that’s to be expected. As far as system specs go though, the minimum requirements for Layers of Fear 2 seem pretty reasonable. A low-end 2GB DDX11 video card paired with a fairly modest quad-core CPU will do the trick and the slow-paced exploration means high frame rates aren’t a must.

If you’re hoping to crank all those sliders up and see Layers of Fear 2 in all its grisly detail then you’ll be needing a considerably more powerful system. Bloober Team hasn’t outlined what resolution these specs are targeting, although we’d hazard a guess this what you’ll need to run LoF2 on at least 1440p screen resolution, perhaps even 4K.

Layers of Fear 2 will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, come 28 May 2019
