Amnesia: Rebirth is the newly announced title from the horror masters at Frictional Games, after teasing it for a few months we finally know what it is.

"In Amnesia: Rebirth, you are Tasi Trianon, waking up deep in the desert of Algeria. Days have passed. Where have you been? What did you do? Where are the others? Retrace your journey, pull together the fragments of your shattered past; it is your only chance to survive the pitiless horror that threatens to devour you."

Some actually expected it would be a return to Amnesia and the whole "I am Tasi, I am still Tasi" teaser sort-of hinted at this. This is actually set in the same world as Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Frictional say this will be another "evolutionary leap" for them and it will challenge players to remain calm in the face of some unimaginable terror. See the announcement trailer below:

Feature Highlight:

  • First-person narrative horror experience
  • Explore environments and uncover their histories.
  • Overcome puzzles that stand in your way.
  • Carefully manage your limited resources, both physical and mental.
  • Encounter horrific creatures and use your wits and understanding of the world to escape them.

They will continue their Linux support, with Linux being listed clearly in the platform list on Steam and on their Press Kit too. I also spoke to a member of their team, who said clearly Linux is confirmed. Frictional say it will work across any "Major" 64bit Linux distribution from 2018 onwards. So ensure you're up to date.

You can wishlist and follow Amnesia: Rebirth on Steam.

It would be more surprising to not see it, but it's good to see Linux as a supported system there these days. Penumbra was the first Linux game I ever bought and I'm glad Frictional have kept that up.

Gonna take off a day or two when it releases to pull some good old lights off, headphones on all-nighters to hatefully love the experience again.

I really need to go on a Frictional gaming marathon at some point. Because I think I own them all and haven't actually played any of them. :D

Judging by the trailer I will probably wait for a "Safe Mode" to actually play this one (SOMA is not that much a horror game but it was already to much for me without the "Safe Mode")! ^_^

This region thing is new. Why is that? Also getting that problem. Come on, Frictional, why discriminate customers?

(Looking at the trailer) Someone at Frictional seems to be a "The Thing" fan.
As long as it doesn't become, suddenly, another EPIC Store timed exclusive....
I'm hyped! SOMA is my favorite game of theirs but very much looking forwards to another Amnesia game.

Quoting: PatolaThis region thing is new. Why is that? Also getting that problem. Come on, Frictional, why discriminate customers?

This is likely not on purpose. Someone mentioned that it usually happens when a dev/publisher has not set the age rating for a specific region. So if someone just notifies Frictional about it, I'm sure they will fix it.
Yes I loved playing Amneisa The Dark Decent and also A Machine for Pigs even though the last one was not so great as the first one. But watching this trailer I have high expectations on this title. :D
