Frictional Games, the developer behind the Amnesia horror games, has announced their new sequel, Amnesia: Rebirth. Horror fans will be encountering all-new threats judging from the trailer released for the game.
The developer has revealed some interesting new details about their new game, sharing a darker setting and plenty of scare for players. In a blog post on the PlayStation website, Frictional Games creative director Thomas Grip detailed some darker tone elements and told fans that they would see some very interesting new elements in the sequel. “We’re not simply going for a carnival attraction of jumpscares,” he says, “Amnesia: Rebirth is an emotionally harrowing journey—something different, something less predictable.”
The team is also looking to be a bit more experimental with the story. Amnesia: Rebirth is about an entirely new story with a new protagonist, and because of that the team wants to make some major changes to the way the game plays, with a focus on more immersive horror. “We want to take you beyond horror and out the other side—and see whether you’ll stand the weight of what we put you through,” Grip said.
Amnesia: Rebirth is due to release in autumn this year for both PC and PlayStation 4. Check out the trailer for the new horror game down below.
