The new tech demo for Layers of Fear showcases the power of Unreal Engine 5 in video game development. The iconic horror series from Bloober Team has been entirely rebuilt in UE5 with stunning features like ray tracing, HDR, 4K resolution, Lumen for dynamic lighting, and Niagara for real-time particle effects. It’s a testament to the engine’s dominance in the current generation of gaming.
An impressive new lighting system called Numen powers the lighting effects, and hardware ray tracing enables a level of realism in shadows and reflections that is eerily unsettling.
According to the press release, the upcoming remake of Layers of Fear (2023) will not only be utilising the tools of Unreal Engine 5 for visuals, but also for gameplay mechanics. Players will be able to use The Lantern, a new tool that is essential for confronting the fears within the game’s story. This remake will include Unreal Engine 5 remakes of Layers of Fear, Layers of Fear 2, and all DLCs, along with a new chapter called The Writer that ties together all the terrifying tales. It will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC.
