Amnesia: Rebirth Will Make This Halloween Season Extra Spooky
When it comes to modern horror games, a lot of them used 2010’s Amnesia: The Dark Descent as a guide. It basically rewrote the rules for horror games. However, a different developer took over for 2013’s Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and the series has been stagnate since. At least, until October 20th, when Amnesia: Rebirth launches.
The game places you in the role of Tasi Trianon, a woman who survives a plane crash in a desert in Algeria. While this may seem like she’s lucky to be alive, there’s also just days missing from her memory that she has no clue what happened. So Tasi will begin to retrace her steps, try to figure out what happened over those days, and maybe not die in the desert. It’s certainly going to be a difficult journey for her. I doubt the monsters will help.
Yes, in typical Amnesia fashion, there will be monsters. Like the other games, you can’t fight these monsters and instead must run away and hide from them. You can’t look directly at them either, as doing so will just make the main character terrified and more prone to panicking. Survive the monsters, and you also will have to solve puzzles to advance. Just don’t expect to shoot your way out anytime soon.
Amnesia: Rebirth will be launching on PC and PlayStation 4 on October 20th. You can add the game to your wishlist here.
