Amnesia: The Dark Descent remains to be one of the scariest horror games to this date. Frictional Games followed it up with A Machine For Pigs, but it’s Amnesia Rebirth that’s got fans more excited.
Amnesia: Rebirth was revealed earlier this year. Since being revealed, Frictional Games has been quiet about their progress in the game. Just recently, the developers released a new trailer for the upcoming horror game. It also comes with the announcement of the anticipated title’s release date.
Release date and platform
As per the trailer, the upcoming game will release on Oct. 20, just in time for Halloween. The game will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PC. It’s not yet known whether the game will launch to other platforms such as the Switch and Xbox One. Moreover, we’ve yet to know if the game will have new-gen platform versions too.
What is the game about?
Amnesia is a survival horror series by Frictional Games. Many attribute the series for creating an entirely new genre of horror games on their own. Unlike other horror games, this series doesn’t give players any way to fight back. Instead, players are forced to run away and hide from creatures.
Amnesia: Rebirth is a direct sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, whereas A Machine for Pigs served as an indirect sequel.
Based on the trailer, it seems like the game will retain the same gameplay features like its predecessors. While exploring the game’s world, players will have to keep their sanity and health meters up to avoid getting a game over.
They can keep their health meters up by avoiding getting hit by enemies and falling off high places. On the other hand, sanity meters decrease whenever players come across something scary. The meter also decreases when the player enters a dark room for too long.
The trailer comes off as a surprise, as this time, the areas seem brighter than usual.
As such, having a source of light like a lamp will be crucial to the player’s survival. Players will also have to solve various puzzles to progress. All the while, they’ll be chased by mysterious creatures too. The one in the latest entry also seems to be different from the past ones.
Amnesia Rebirth is going to be another terrifying game from Frictional Games. It comes just in time for the Halloween season, so gamers have something new to play once these horror titles come out.
