A very brief clip from Frictional Games’ upcoming horror title Amnesia: The Bunker, teases a glimpse of what fans can expect from the franchise.
Frictional Games has released a very short gameplay clip from the upcoming horror title Amnesia: The Bunker, which really shows off an aspect of gameplay that fans aren’t familiar with in the series. Notable for having one of the scariest games in the horror genre, the first Amnesian game called The Dark Descent was a horror hit. Not only did the product help give the genre a much-needed kick-start, it’s also partly responsible for the proliferation of gaming videos on YouTube, in which gamers will record themselves trying their guts out. His game in the game was considered one of the scariest games at the time.
Now, the fun continues as the developer recently announced that Amnesia: The Bunker will launch in March 2023 and will be the fourth installment in the series. The 2010 first installment is often considered the most successful installment in the series, helping to lay the groundwork for modern horror games and with a unique presentation to make the player feel small to the world. reaction force. The fact that all three existing games have removed the protagonist’s ability to defend themselves is part of what makes them so scary, but it looks like the new game will change that.
In a short and recent clip, Amnesia: The Bunker shows how the player character holds and fires a gun at a padlock to open a door. At 23 seconds, this doesn’t seem like a huge game trailer, but for those already familiar with the franchise, being able to wield a weapon offers something the three games don’t have. Play remaining deliberately ignored. For fans of Amnesia or SOMA, also developed by Frictional, there may be concerns about how guns might affect the overall horror, but time will tell whether the game will. less horror than its predecessors or not.
Considered by many to be one of the most influential indie horror games of all time, Amnesia: The Dark Descent comes at a time when the genre is in crisis. Silent Hill didn’t really do much at the time and some felt that the Resident Evil games had lost their horror roots. While Dead Space offers something fans can be engrossed in, it wasn’t until Amnesia’s release that many fans realized how gruesome the horror could be.
With the Resident Evil 4 Remake also coming in early 2023, March will be an interesting month for the horror genre. While the original formula that Frictional put out in 2010 has improved since then, its impact on the ability to scare players, even the bravest, can’t be denied.
