Frictional Games has been teasing its next project for a little while throwing out videos and hints about what is in store for fans of its horror titles. Today, the studio revealed what the new game is and Amnesia: The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs fans will be very happy. Amnesia: Rebirth is the next entry to the cult horror series which started in 2010.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Amnesia: Rebirth is a new descent into darkness in the iconic Amnesia series. Set in the desolate landscape of the Algerian desert, the game will focus on new character Tasi Trianon as she sets out on a harrowing journey through devastation and despair, personal terror and pain, while exploring the limits of human resilience.
You can’t let out a breath. The creature is only inches away. Its sole purpose – to feed off your terror. And so you crouch in the dark, trying to stop the fear rising, trying to silence what lies within you.
Retracing Tasi’s journey and pulling together the fragments of a shattered past will be the only chance to survive the pitiless horror that threatens to devour you. Time is against you. Still, you must continue, step by step, knowing that if you fail you will lose everything.
Amnesia: Rebirth will be available at some point in the autumn for PS4 and PC via Steam where it can be wishlisted. SOMA was the last big title from Frictional Games and in our review for that Tuffcub wrote:
I’ve never played a game that’s affected me as much as SOMA, and to be honest I’m not sure I want to ever again, although I’m very glad I did. It has the DNA of movies like Alien, 2001, Sunlight, and Event Horizon, with a splash of the original Dead Space and Bioshock, but brings plenty of new ideas to the table. It makes you think about what it means to be alive, and indeed how you classify life, and is a brilliant example of just how far video games have evolved.
