Despite how 2020 has gone so far, we are entering the traditionally scary time of year for game releases. Amnesia: Rebirth is joining games looking to give you a fright with a new trailer released today. It follows the journey of Tasi Trianon in the Algerian desert, and the trailer shows that scorching landscape and so much more. She ventures into caverns and what looks like a ruin. Beyond that, she goes into some very unearthly places and deals with some kind of growing medical issue from the way her arms look.
It’s a tense and scary looking game, but the developers at Frictional Games are looking to do something very special with Amnesia: Rebirth. The game’s Creative Director, Thomas Grip, describes the changes as follows:
“Amnesia is not just another haunted house spook-fest, but an emotionally harrowing journey. 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.”
Tasi will have to manage her resources, uncover clues, and deal with some crazy stuff in order to survive this ordeal. If you’re looking to have some frights and scares, you can grab Amnesia: Rebirth on October 20th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
