The new Amnesia is just around the corner

News by Matt S.

Amnesia has become one of the higher-prestige horror properties over the years, which is particularly impressive given that the developers and publishers behind them don't churn them out at a rapid rate. Good horror takes time to percolate, and it has been a long wait between drinks since the last Amnesia (2013, with A Machine For Pigs).

The developer of the original Amnesia, Frictional Games (remember: A Machine For Pigs was done by The Chinese Room), is back with its first new Amnesia since the 2010 original, and this game, Amnesia: Rebirth, looks to be excellent. You play as Tasi Trianon, who wakes up deep in the desert of Algeria. You need to do the usual survival thing (avoiding the various monsters that are stalking you, solve puzzles), while making your way through this blistering, harsh environment.

As with previous Amnesia titles, Rebirth promises to be a deeply psychological and narrative experience, with the shocking revelations that you'll learn about Tasi being every bit as terrifying as the monsters that are after her.

The game releases on PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam, GOG and Epic) on October 20.
