Amnesia: Rebirth 1.1 is out, along with major rendering fixes for Linux

By - | Views: 21,439

Frictional Games have released Amnesia: Rebirth 1.1 which is a very important upgrade for Linux fans as it fixes up some major problems.

At the release, sadly the game was something of a mess for Linux with floating objects and at times everything vanishing. Thankfully, it seems the Linux graphical issues have been fully solved and you should now be able to play through. Nicely timed here by Frictional for Halloween.

Here's the 1.1 release highlights:

  • You can now skip memories by holding down the left mouse button, or right trigger on a gamepad.
  • Linux graphics glitch fixed.
  • Various blockers fixed.
  • Various bug fixes.

It's not quite perfected though, and their next update will be focusing on more Linux fixes like full-screen issues on some desktops and the game acting oddly when you go to quit. On top of that full mod support is coming as they're "almost there" but it needs more testing.

We've livestreamed the first part on our Twitch Channel, and if you missed it you can find the first full episode on our YouTube Channel. Obvious spoilers if you click the link. Episode 2 of our play-through will go live on Twitch on Saturday October 31.

From what we've played so far, it's pretty incredible. A seriously intense atmosphere, that like previous Frictional horrors relies a lot on your immersion and psychological horror rather than constant jump scares. Amnesia: Rebirth likes to play with your mind. There's some impressive jump scares too though.

You can buy Amnesia: Rebirth from GOG and Steam

Yet another example of why I don't buy games at launch. I am happy they are fixing things for their users but at the same time reading this you would think the game was in beta not a fully launched product.

Finally Linuxers can enjoy this great game.
I bought on release and saddly waited for this fix.

This update didn't fix my issue. I guess I wait for 1.2

I was able to play on Proton launch day but I'm looking forward to actually being able to play natively.

I started playing it a few days ago because I opted into the `linux_testing` beta branch. Amazing game, highly recommend.

Nice, I was hoping for a fix since I also had graphical issues.

Maybe I can start playing now (after I finished Little Hope).

...and nothing on GOG, even though the Windows version have already seen a bump to 1.11.

Game runs on OpenGL4.0-4.3 it seems, I've seen allot of games on older versions of OGL that have had odd issues similar to this. Is odd.
