If you’re down for getting scared silly this Halloween season, Frictional Games has announced that Amnesia: Rebirth will be releasing on October 20th for PS4 and PC.
Frictional Games was the developer of the much-acclaimed Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which also kinda kickstarted many let’s play Youtubers careers. The sequel, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs was developed by The Chinese Room.
In Rebirth, you’ll play as Tasi Trianon who will have to travel through deserts, dark caves and forgotten ruins, all the while, attempting to survive against monsters and never getting too scared.
The trailer begins with what looks like a plane crash before Tasi ends up lost in a desert and working her way through ruins containing monsters and puzzles to be solved.
“Amnesia is not just another haunted house spook-fest, but an emotionally harrowing journey”, said Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games. “We aim to go beyond simple jump-scares and to affect players on a deeper level. While Rebirth will contain the terrifying encounters and sights you expect from an Amnesia game, it has a lot more focus on narrative than previous entries in the series. We want the player to form a strong bond with Tasi and intimately share her tribulations. This will not be your run-of-the-mill horror experience.”
