Early this afternoon, Frictional Games announced a release date for its much anticipated follow up to Amnesia: Dark Descent. They call it Amnesia: Rebirth, and it’s coming out on October 20th, meaning it’ll be here just in time for Halloween.
Amnesia: Rebirth will take players through a wide variety of uncanny environments, from scorched deserts and dark caves to forgotten ruins and alien landscapes. They must learn how to carefully explore the surroundings to find the clues they need while managing essential resources to keep main character Tasi alive and dig up the truth.
“Amnesia is not just another haunted house spook-fest, but an emotionally harrowing journey”, explains 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.”
Today also saw the release of a new trailer for Rebirth. You can see it, as well as the developers’ synopsis, below.
In the new trailer released today, we journey deeper into the twisted story behind Amnesia: Rebirth. The protagonist, Tasi Trianon, finds herself in the desolate landscape of the Algerian desert, battling against her fears and pain as she seeks out answers. She must do everything and anything to survive. She is Tasi.
