The most ambitious entry in the iconic Amnesia series, Amnesia Rebirth, arrives on PC and PS4 on October 20 – just in time for Halloween!
MALMÖ, Sweden, September 15th, 2020 – Ten years after the launch of their critically-acclaimed game Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Frictional Games presents a new trailer announcing the release date for the much-anticipated horror sequel, Amnesia: Rebirth, scheduled to arrive on October 20 on PC and PlayStation 4. Pre-orders on Steam, GOG.com, Epic Games Store, and PlayStation Store are now open.
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.
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 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.”
Amnesia: Rebirth launches October 20th, 2020 and is now available for pre-orders in multiple stores.
