Alongside the demo, Bloober has also shared the PC system requirements for Layers of Fear so horror fans know what they’re in for before they download the sampler. The requirements start off somewhat modest for a 1080p/30FPS image at the lowest quality, but if you’re hoping to play at a full 4K60 with ray-tracing and all the rest you’ll need to be rocking at least a NVIDIA RTX 3080Ti.
