Our XB1 videos of Layers of Fear

Layers of Fear is back to haunt you, this time on Xbox One. If you do not know the game yet, feel free to read our quick review available here. The atmosphere of the game is very oppressive, but lots of framerate issues sometimes make it really hard to enjoy this haunted house. Like The Solus Project, we hope that Bloober Team will find a way to improve this in a future patch.

Yep i noticed the rather bad framerate in the Game Preview version too, shame it hasn't been improved at all. I'd say this is nearing unplayable. Not to mention the nasty aliasing.

welcome to the unity engine. where if your ambitions are beyond that of a side scrolling platformer your performance is through the floor. firewatch has similar issues. it's just a poorly optimised engine for consoles. and the more you push it the worse things get.

It's a poor engine overall. Distance, which also runs on Unity, is the only game that is capable to dip my framerate to 20fps on all max, while not looking even nearly as good to justify that.

More like layers of framerate, amiright?

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth ..or it ends up being too ambitious and developed forever like Star Citizen, hopefully not being cancelled. (5 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i haven't been following shenmue III's dev closely, knowing how perfectionist YS is i imagine they polish and release a shorter part of it, and doing episodic releases. (6 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: The dub was wooden, like most localizations of japanese games at the time. Expensive AAA game pushing the envelope, unlike III which by the looks of it isn't pioneering much, which is fine. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] short biomutant gameplay. (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i think it'll be fine. it's an in-development title, with a budget on-par with an indie game. you're not going to get the next horizon visually. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog you know what i remember about shenmue? wooden delivery of lines and wooden animation. it was about awkwardly walking and running around an environment asking mundane questions (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (2 Hours ago)
