Layers of Fear, not to be confused with 2016’s Layers of Fear, is Bloober Team’s version of a remake (of sorts) which combines the original game, its sequel, the game’s DLCs, and a brand new chapter that acts as a bridge between the two games, and complies them with Unreal Engine 5.
The new Layers of Fear brings improved mechanics, better lighting and texture work but remains largely unchanged otherwise. According to critics, this is a good and a bad thing because while the new coat of paint with Unreal Engine 5 enhances the visual experience, some of the shortcomings with the old versions of the games still remain.
