Frictional Games is a pretty well-known video game development studio. These are the folks that created some great horror games that you’ve probably enjoyed if you’re into the genre. To help jog your memory a bit, Frictional Games are responsible for the Penumbra, Amnesia, and Soma franchises. With Soma being the last video game title the studio launch which came out in 2015, the studio has been working on their next title, Amnesia: Rebirth, a game that will be a sequel to the 2010 release, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Now for fans that have been waiting for more information to come out for this game, it looks like you’ll be able to enjoy the title this October.
After several teasers, we finally received the unveiling of Amnesia: Rebirth this year. In this game, players will follow a brand new protagonist named Tasi Trianon, who will be going through a deep and dark journey filled with terror. Just as before, you wake up with no memory, and it’s up to the players in order to fill in the memory gaps of what’s going on. It’s another first-person narrative horror game with hostile creatures and a slew of puzzles as well.
We don’t need a whole lot of details for this game as Frictional Games is a name that gives the title enough warrant for players to purchase. Still, for those that are already sold on the game and want to dive into the title a bit more, you won’t have to wait very long as it’s slated to release this October. In particular, the game will be launching on October 20, 2020. That’s enough time to ore-order the title now on Steam for a 10% discount, putting the game at $26.99.
That discount won’t last forever as it will be going back to its standard price of $29.99. This is also enough time to go back and replay or play for the first time ever, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. What better way to start the October Halloween season with a classic horror game and wrap it up towards the end of the month when the sequel arrives. It’s worth noting that this game is only going to release on PC and PlayStation 4 for the time being. We’re not sure if this is a timed exclusive deal with the game receiving ports later on for additional platform releases. In the meantime, check out the game gallery below along with the trailer for Amnesia: Rebirth above.
