Amnesia: The Bunker Announced for PS4, Xbox & PC, March 2023 Release; Semi-Open World

Frictional Games, the developer behind the Amnesia and SOMA titles, has announced a new entry for the former, titled Amnesia: The Bunker.

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.
