Swedish video game developer, Frictional Games, has announced that their hit horror title, Amnesia: Rebirth, has received an Adventure Mode update.
This mode lets players experience the title while being safe from the darkness, monsters, and jumpscares. The goal of this mode is to let players experience a “new way to experience the fantastic quest of Tasi Trianon with its captivating narrative, cool environments, unique theme, and challenging puzzles, without the anxiety-inducing, and very distressing elements present in the original game.”
Fredrik Olsson explains the purpose behind Adventure Mode and the appeal of it below:
“The game still has its very serious theme and sometimes unnerving ambiance, but the new mode feels a lot more like an Indiana Jones type of adventure in places where it would otherwise be more of a horror experience. ”
“We believe that anyone who loves a good story-driven adventure game will be stoked about this new mode. Not everyone is into horror and we don’t want that to block people from experiencing Tasi’s story. We did something very similar when we released the Safe mode for SOMA. It was extremely well received and opened up the game to a much broader audience, something we hope will happen with Rebirth as well.”
Additionally, Adventure Mode includes new, bonus puzzles that make the experience more akin to a true Lovecraftian mystery adventure novel. This new mode will be coming to PlayStation 4 in the coming weeks.
Amnesia: Rebirth is now 40% off on Steam, GOG.com, and Epic Games Store.
