Earlier this year we reported on the reveal of a brand new instalment in the beloved psychological thriller/horror series, Amnesia. Today, the developers over at Frictional Games have published a spine chilling new trailer, showcasing parts of the upcoming game’s narrative.
In this new story & environments trailer, we meet Salim, one of the surviving crew members of the aircraft, Cassandra. You can check it out below:
Set in the desolate landscape of the Algerian desert, the game will introduce a new protagonist named Tasi Trianon. Gather fragments of Tasi’s shattered past as she sets out on a harrowing journey through devastation and despair, personal terror and pain. Retracing her steps is Tasi’s only chance to survive the pitiless horror that threatens to devour her, racing the clock while exploring the limits of human resilience.
It has been almost a decade since the launch of the first Amnesia title, The Dark Descent. This first-person survival horror, made by the developer responsible for the Penumbra series and sci-fi heavy SOMA, is critically acclaimed and remains one of the most immersive and psychologically taxing gaming experiences in recent memory. In 2013, the first addition to the series, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, written and developed by The Chinese Room and published by Frictional was released. The gameplay of this instalment was quite different from that of the Dark Descent, it was much shorter and the narrative and the in-game world remained largely separate from that of the previous title. Amnesia: Rebirth will be Frictional’s first release since 2015s SOMA and represents another evolutionary leap for the developer who promises unimaginable terror in their new descent into darkness.
Launching on October 20th, 2020, for PC and PlayStation 4/5, Amnesia: Rebirth promises to bring back what worked in the original title while building a deeper narrative experience. A new descent into darkness and a gut-wrenching journey that will leave a lasting mark on players and horror fans for years to come.
