Fictional Games has been teasing their next title for a while, and now it’s been revealed as Amnesia: Rebirth.

Described as “a new story set in the world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent,” it is set in the Algerian desert and follows a new protagonist named Tasi Trianon. According to the official description:

Retracing Tasi’s journey and pulling together the fragments of a shattered past will be the only chance to survive the pitiless horror that threatens to devour you. Time is against you. Still, you must continue, step by step, knowing that if you fail you will lose everything.”

(While it’s unclear if Rebirth will connect to The Dark Descent’s story or not, it’s worth pointing out that Algeria is where Daniel came into contact with the orb and set the events of the game into motion.)

Amnesia: Rebirth is planned for PC and PS4, with a fall 2020 release window.

In a Playstation Blog post about the game, Creative Director Thomas Grip says Rebirth will be “built on what [they] learned from the original game” and promises “an emotionally harrowing journey.”

So far, everything sounds great. I didn’t enjoy Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs a lot, but since Rebirth is being handled by Frictional Games themselves and the announcement specifically references The Dark Descent, I’m optimistic that this new entry will play more like the original.

Frictional Games is working on another project as well.

I’m excited for Amnesia: Rebirth, and I really ought to play SOMA before it comes out. How do you feel about the newly-announced Amnesia sequel?

  1. Oooo one to keep an eye on for sure. I didn’t care for Machine For Pigs either, so I’m really glad it’s leaning the Dark Decent way too.

    • This one being developed by Frictional Games is a good sign. I was skeptical of A Machine for Pigs from the start because of it being made by the developers of Dear Esther (which I didn’t like).

  2. Oh yeah, I failed to play SOMA yet too. It’s good to have a reminder to do so.
