Fans of horror games and specifically Amnesia’s spooky style of play received some very good news earlier this year, as Frictional Games revealed that the title will have a sequel coming this year. Fortunately, the title will not be delayed, but will be available just in time to celebrate Halloween.
Frictional Games confirmed today, September 15, that Amnesia: Rebirth, a direct sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, will be on sale from October 20 on PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG).
Along with the announcement of the release date, a new promotional trailer was released showing more in-game sequences about the journey that Tasi Trianon will undertake, which will wake up in the middle of an Algerian desert and will have to recover fragments of the past in order to survive the ruthless horror that haunts her and threatens to devour her.
Amnesia: Rebirth will go beyond simple jump scares
Something interesting about this new installment is that, according to Thomas Grip, creative director of the studio, it will have a focus on the narrative compared to the original title and that it will go beyond horror, as it will try to offer a package in which the emotional aspect it will be something main.
“Our goal is to go beyond jump scares and affect players on a deeper level. While Rebirth will include the terrifying encounters and scenes that you would expect from an Amnesia game, it has more focus on the narrative than in previous installments in the series. We want the player to form a strong bond with Tarsi and intimately share her afflictions. This will not be your ordinary horror experience, ”Grip said.
We leave you with the reveal trailer for the release date below.
