Frictional Games has released a free update for their horror adventure Amnesia: Rebirth on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 adding the Adventure Mode that was previously available on PC only.
Adventure Mode gives players the option to turn off all monsters and the hindrances of being in the dark so they can focus on puzzles and the narrative. “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,” explains Fredrik Olsson.
In addition, Adventure Mode includes a number of bonus puzzles that add up to the experience of a true Lovecraftian mystery adventure novel.
“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,” comments Fredrik. “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.”
Further, PS5 players will receive an additional benefit from the update that allows them to play in 60 FPS. The game is capped at 30 FPS on PS4 consoles.
Amnesia: Rebirth is released ten years after the original title, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which launched in 2010. In Amnesia: Rebirth, players assume the role of Tasi Trianon who finds herself in the Algerian desert as she fights fears to learn answers to the many questions that she has.
