Bloober Team, the quietly unsung heroes of adventure horror are back with Layers of Fear 2, the follow-up to, you guessed it, Layers of Fear. After a brief sojourn for Observer, Layers of Fear 2 is set aboard a terrifying ocean liner this time, centred on a Hollywood actor answering a casting call for a new movie. Publisher Gun Media has announced Layers of Fear 2 will be coming to PC and consoles on May 28th, which means we've also got the LoF2 system specs to boot.

The system requirements for Layers of Fear 2 represent a sizeable leap over the original, although it's been almost three years so that's to be expected. As far as system specs go though, the minimum requirements for Layers of Fear 2 seem pretty reasonable. A low-end 2GB DDX11 video card paired with a fairly modest quad-core CPU will do the trick and the slow-paced exploration means high frame rates aren't a must.

If you're hoping to crank all those sliders up and see Layers of Fear 2 in all its grisly detail then you'll be needing a considerably more powerful system. Bloober Team hasn't outlined what resolution these specs are targeting, although we'd hazard a guess this what you'll need to run LoF2 on at least 1440p screen resolution, perhaps even 4K.
