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.

Board-game-turned-tactical-RPG Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace out in March
Asmodee Digital's video game adaptation of the hugely popular Lovecraft-inspired Arkham Horror board game series will be coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC on 23rd March. Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace, to give the adaptation it's official name, is a narrative-driven tactical RPG that sets players loose in the titular town of Arkham, circa 1926 - more specifically, in a spooky old mansion, where the murder of an astronomy professor has occurred. What follows is a riff on the board game series' familiar Lovecraft-tinged exploratory action, requiring players to first assemble a crack team of investigators from 12 uniquely skilled characters - drawn from all across the Arkham Horror universe.

Asmodee Digital's video game adaptation of the hugely popular Lovecraft-inspired Arkham Horror board game series isn't too far away now - an Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC release is currently pencilled in for "Q1 2021" - and we've finally been given a first proper look at the narrative-driven tactical RPG in newly release gameplay trailer. Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace, you might recall, was originally announced as an adaptation of Fantasy Flight Games' other Lovecraft-inspired board game series Mansions of Madness back in 2018, but it received its new name - and a new developer, Artefacts Studio - last year. Despite the development switcheroo, it's still very much along the lines of Asmodee's original announcement, setting players loose in a spooky old mansion, circa 1926, where the murder of a professor of astronomy has occurred.
