Amnesia: The Bunker to be Challenging and Immersive; Two Additional Difficulty Levels Planned Post-Launch

Frictional Games, the developer behind the Amnesia and SOMA titles, released a new video dedicated to their upcoming horror adventure, Amnesia: The Bunker, releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on June 6, 2023.

The video highlights some tips on how to approach the game. “If you think it’s possible, it likely is,” seems to be the thought process of this immersive horror experience. Players will need to rely on item conservation, but the devs have left room for experimentation, so you can play around with your combining items and testing out theories.

Further, the developer has confirmed two additional game modes to be added post-launch, Shell Shocked Mode and Custom Mode. Shell Shocked will be a harder mode, while custom mode will allow players to fine their experience even further. We’ll keep you updated on the rollout of these features.

This new game will differ from previous entries since this outing is set in a semi-open world, letting players choose their playstyle and explore at their leisure with few scripted events.

In addition, the sandbox environmental incorporation aims to significantly amplify tension, with a constantly looming threat making each moment-to-moment choice matter more than ever before—enhanced lighting and carefully designed sound effects aid in elevating the tone as well.

Further, player choice is emphasized by objects, threats, and resources changing across every playthrough, alongside tool handling and multiple solutions to intricate puzzles.

The main character is a French soldier armed with a revolver gun and a noisy dynamo flashlight as he walks across a poorly lit World War I bunker. And as if that weren’t enough, he fittingly suffers from amnesia while being hunted by some manner of otherworldly monstrosity.
