An expansion for Layers of Fear was announced at RTX 2016 (a gaming/internet event hosted by Rooster Teeth that I had no idea existed until now…) and is going to be released August 2nd. Hey that’s my birthday! I really enjoyed Layers of Fear. It was a really nice looking game that had some really cool environmental effects that I haven’t really seen in a horror game. The environment changes so fast on you and it’s amazing. And the sound design is superb in this game.
Layers of Fear: Inheritance takes place sometime after the original game and you take control of the painter’s daughter. Apparently she must have caught her father’s insanity bug as things get a little crazy as you explore the house you grew up in. I guess having a father lose his mind can do something to a person.
As the painter’s daughter you return to your former home to discover what happened during your father’s loss of mental state as well as discover what he left for you. It’s been awhile since I’ve been excited for a DLC, but this looks pretty promising. If it’s anything like the original game it should be good.
This DLC is releasing for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on August 2nd. I know what I’m getting myself for my birthday. There is not a price point as of right now but I’m sure we’ll hear more later on. What about you guys, are you interested in this expansion? Did you play the original game? If not why?
As a side note, I wouldn’t mind writing a review for this game although it’s been out for quite some time. What do you guys think of having reviews for games that have been out for awhile? Let me know in the comments.
