SOMA dev's horror follow-up Amnesia: Rebirth gets October release date, new trailer

Coming to PC and PlayStation 4.

SOMA developer Frictional Games' latest delve into the depths of horror, Amnesia: Rebirth, will be making its way to PC and PS4 just in time for Halloween, launching on 20th October.

Amnesia: Rebirth is the follow-up to Frictional's seminal horror effort, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a game that celebrates its tenth anniversary this year (2013's Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was developed by Everybody's Gone to the Rapture studio The Chinese Room). It's all change this time though, and Rebirth follows the tribulations of new protagonist Tasi Trianon as she journeys across the Algerian desert pulling together the fragments of her shattered past.

There's exploration to be done, puzzles to be solved, and limited mental and physical resources to be managed, with Frictional promising a plunge through a variety of "uncanny environments, from scorched deserts and dark caves to forgotten ruins and alien landscapes."

Frictional's creative director Thomas Grip says that, rather than delivering "just another haunted house spook-fest", Rebirth sets players on an "emotionally harrowing journey" with a much greater focus on narrative than previous entries in the series.

Amnesia: Rebirth - which has a tough act to follow after Frictional's exceptional deep-sea horror SOMA - has remained rather enigmatic since its initial reveal; however, there's a little more to be gleaned from its new release date trailer, which should tide you over until its 20th October arrival on PC (via Steam, GOG, and Epic) and PlayStation 4.
