There’s not long to wait until Amnesia: The Bunker is upon us. In the meantime, you can check out the latest gameplay footage, which teases the horror to come. It’s hard to know what to expect from the next installment in Frictional’s iconic series, but this video alone shows that it will hopefully have what makes the Amnesia games such hits.
Though it is true that nothing in the franchise has really managed to hit the nail on the head in terms of terror quite like The Dark Descent, Amnesia: The Bunker is still something to look forward to. In this latest video, uploaded to the studio’s official YouTube channel, you get a glimpse of what you’ll be doing while in the titular location. The 10-minute footage even teases the monster that lurks in the dark, as well as some of the puzzles you’ll be faced with.
It’s a bit of a shame that the game was delayed again. Frictional was originally planning to release it in March, but had to push it back to mid-May. It was just a few weeks ago that the developer then announced there was going to be yet another delay. Fortunately, this wasn’t much longer, and the game is now scheduled for release on May 23. It was also revealed that it will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one, so that’s something to be excited about for those of you who subscribe to the service.
Will it be able to capture the magic that was the original Amnesia, which went down as one of the most terrifying games in existence? There’s no way to know. Given that this entry is more open-world, as well as giving the player a pistol, it feels this might switch up the formula a bit. Until then, don’t forget to check out the Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay video below.
