Amnesia: Rebirth is Just Around the Corner (TEASERS)

The Amnesia series is famous for its utterly terrifying aesthetics. Known for leaving the players appalled and shocked, it’s considered one of the best games of its kind. Now, it’s time for its fans to start celebrating once again, since Amnesia: Rebirth is just around the corner and is expected to be released in the Fall of 2020. 

The upcoming Amnesia won’t focus solely on jumpscares and dark atmosphere, but it will offer a deeper, fuller experience, by exploring different kinds of horror. 

Frictional Games' creative director Thomas Grip mentioned: 

We could have just gone, 'Oh, let's take this, let's play thing that started with Amnesia and run with that. But that doesn't feel like what we wanted to do. There are a bunch of things that we thought that people liked with [The Dark Descent] and then there's a bunch of stuff that we felt we could do better and there's a bunch of stuff that we learned from SOMA and we also felt like we wanted to put all of that together. So, when we started out with The Dark Descent  one of the things we wanted to do was to have a certain thematic subject at its core. We wanted it to be about a human evil. It feels like that sort of got the back seat and the focus was instead on, 'Oh, I'm so scared--the monster is coming!' So we wanted to give that another shot--not the exact same subject matter, but make something where horror is not just on this very short-term time scale of just seeing a monster and being scared, but something that grows over time. 

Amnesia: Rebirth is scheduled to be released for PlayStation 4 and PC and, I can honestly say that I can’t wait to give it a try, it will surely be a game to remember!
