Frictional Video games is returning to the horrifying world of Amnesia with a model new recreation. Amnesia: The Bunker is the following recreation within the common survival horror franchise, and is ready to launch on PC someday in 2023. The sport was revealed right this moment with a brand new trailer and a fistful of screenshots. To date, it’s trying to invoke the identical sense of dread as the unique two video games — The Darkish Descent and A Machine for Pigs. Besides now, you’ll really get a freakin’ gun (with a slight caveat).
Amnesia: The Bunker is perhaps simply as creepy wanting, however don’t anticipate the sport to be a easy clone. Frictional Video games is breaking down the partitions with the sport, turning it right into a semi-open-world expertise. The shadowy sandbox world is ready to offer random, unscripted terrors. Monsters, sources, and varied objects change with every run. In a approach, it virtually sounds akin to a rogue-lite, which is a daring step for the group.
Within the recreation, you play as a protagonist trapped in a dimly lit World Warfare I bunker. You’re armed with a “noisy dynamo flashlight,” in addition to a revolver that solely has one bullet. A French soldier who, naturally, is stricken with amnesia, you should remedy puzzles, full particular duties, and acquire valuable sources all whereas being stalked by an “otherworldly creature.” Appears like time.

The sport definitely sounds intriguing, although I’m wondering if followers can be delay by its rogue-lite nature. Earlier video games within the sequence have been extra narrative, linear treks whereas being hunted by horrors. Frictional doesn’t fairly make it clear within the press launch if you happen to begin from scratch if you die within the recreation. There’s an opportunity that the design is to encourage frequent playthroughs, because the group guarantees the sport could have virtually no scripted occasions. It does have a narrative, and that’s doubtless to not change with each run.
Amnesia: The Bunker will launch for PC in March 2023 on each Steam and the Epic Video games Retailer. That’s loads of time to study extra about Frictional’s subsequent horror epic, and we’ll remember to replace you quickly.
