Frictional Games is making its grand return with Amnesia: Rebirth, a direct sequel to the original fright fest. Announced for PlayStation 4 earlier this year, the horror title now has a release date at last. It'll creep onto PlayStation Store on 20th October 2020 — right when we'll all be in a spooky mood.
The news is accompanied by a new trailer, which you can watch above. It teases the game's story, which sees protagonist Tasi Trianon going on an "emotionally harrowing journey" through the Algerian desert. According to creative director Thomas Grip, this sequel is more focused on story than Dark Descent. "We aim to go beyond simple jump-scares and to affect players on a deeper level," he says in a press release. "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."
Grip says the intention is that players will "form a strong bond with Tasi", and that the game isn't a "run-of-the-mill horror experience". Big talk, then — let's hope this delivers when it arrives next month.
