Layers of Fear (2023) supports Ray Tracing, HDR and 4K resolution, increasing visual accuracy, realism, the quality of in-game reflections and overall graphical fidelity. As well, the game utilizes Lumen global illumination to achieve superbly dynamic lighting, Niagara visual effects to create particle effects in real time and Action System Controls to improve the development process and optimization of all gameplay mechanics.

In an accompanying statement, Anshar Studios Lead Programmer Tomasz Bilnicki, said that “Creating games with Unreal Engine 5 is a great opportunity for the whole team, as it means our game development process can skyrocket in quality. It has an incredible power when it comes to the implementation of  dynamic lighting, shadows, and potentially beautiful worlds for players to explore.” He added, “We hope that—thanks to the engine—we’ll provide players with the unique, immersive, visually stunning and atmospheric experience in graphical fidelity.”

Layers of Fear (2023) presents a unified vision of horror reimagined, and will be the ultimate experience for both returning fans and newcomers to the franchise. Featuring the original Layers of Fear, Layers of Fear 2, as well as all DLC’s (including a new chapter entitled “The Final Note” that provides an alternate perspective on the first game’s storyline), the game will also introduce the never-before-told story of The Writer, a harrowing tale that ties each entry in the series together. Layers of Fear (2023) will launch on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles in June of 2023.
