Frictional Games has confirmed that Amnesia Rebirth will be released on October 20th for PC and PS4. A new trailer has been released for Amnesia: Rebirth which shows main protagonist Tasi wandering the Algerian desert as she looks for answers. The desert is far from empty with Tasi delving deeper and deeper into structures hidden amongst the sand. These are not the kind of places you want to holiday in either.
Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games, said:
“Amnesia is not just another haunted house spook-fest, but an emotionally harrowing journey. 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.”
Amnesia: Rebirth was announced in March. 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.
