Amnesia: Rebirth Revealed By Frictional Games (VIDEO)
Following a few months of teasing a mysterious new game, survival-horror developer Frictional Games has now unveiled a new entry in the Amnesia series titled Amnesia: Rebirth. Arriving as a follow-up to 2010’s The Dark Descent, the new title was announced alongside an especially creepy trailer showing off the first bits of story and gameplay.
As per the studio’s website, Frictional confirms the title will follow a new character by the name of Tasi Trianon as she traverses “the desolate landscape of the Algerian desert” to restore “fragments of a shattered past” and “survive the pitiless horror that threatens to devour you.” “Time is against you,” says the post, “Still, you must continue, step by step, knowing that if you fail you will lose everything.” Check out the trailer below.
While Amnesia: Rebirth sports a new setting and protagonist for the Amnesia saga, the game’s Creative Director Thomas Grip has professed a different approach in a post to the PlayStation Blog. The game is said to lean heavily into the atmospheric jumpscares that made the first game successful, but is still aiming to surprise players in other ways to keep them “on their toes at all times.”
“In horror, repetition is a deadly sin,” Grip wrote. “You need to keep players on their toes at all times. We’ve had to twist expectations, refine old features, and up the ante on everything you’ve seen from us. As you might expect from a Frictional game, we’re not simply going for a carnival attraction of jumpscares. Amnesia: Rebirth is an emotionally harrowing journey — something different, something less predictable.”
It will test you in ways you haven’t experienced before, and will make you think about the things that really scare you.”
Amnesia: Rebirth is set to release sometime in Autumn 2020.
