Bloober Team's haunted house horror Layers of Fear heading to PSVR later this month
PlayStation VR owners with a lust for unease and a taste for the disorientating will soon be able to traipse the halls of Bloober Team's psychedelic haunted house horror Layers of Fear VR, which opens its door on 29th April. Originally released for PC at the tail-end of 2019, Layers of Fear VR does pretty much exactly what it says on the label, delivering a more intensely immersive version of Bloober Team's delirious 2016 horror specifically designed for virtual reality headsets. Layers of Fear, if you're unfamiliar, tells the tale of a tortured painter as he attempts to complete his masterpiece - a process that draws players into an increasingly hallucinatory nightmare, with the game's beautifully realised gothic mansion setting warping and reconfiguring itself into ever-more-impossible arrangements, and delivering some deliciously disorientating, frequently unforgettable set-pieces in the process.

Bloober Team has recovered the costs of making The Medium less than a week after its release. As reported in Money.pl (thanks, Gamespot), the horror studio has sold enough copies of the slow-burn horror to recoup all development and marketing costs, even though it's a Xbox Series X console exclusive and is available for "free" for subscribers of Xbox Gass Pass. The horror game's lack of combat and jumpscares has polarised critics and fans alike, but nonetheless, it's the studio's biggest and most ambitious project to date.

Bloober Team, the developer behind the likes of Layers of Fear and Observer, will be bringing its dual-survival reality horror The Medium to Xbox Series X/S and PC on 10th December. The Medium (which was initially announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U back in 2012 before dramatically changing course), casts players as the psychically gifted Marianne - a woman who's been haunted by visions of a child's murder for years - who travels to an abandoned hotel resort in a bid to find answers. Notably, it's Bloober's first stab at third-person horror (as it discussed in more detail when we spoke earlier this year) and its semi-fixed camera, combined with a soundtrack created by legendary composer Akira Yamaoka, gives the experience something of a Silent Hill vibe.
