A brand new sequel to the scariest online game ever made is promising emergent gameplay and ‘unscripted terror’… in addition to a gun.

It’s getting a bit lengthy within the tooth now, however so far as we’re involved 2010’s Amnesia: The Dark Descent is the scariest online game ever made. Unfortunately, none of its sequels have come near stealing its crown, however maybe it’ll be totally different for the subsequent one.

Amnesia: The Bunker has simply been introduced for consoles and PC and might be out someday subsequent yr. It casts you as a French soldier through the First World War, who suffers from the titular illness and is being hunted by an ‘otherworldly creature’ in an nearly pitch black bunker.

What’s attention-grabbing is that, not like the earlier video games, he’s armed with a revolver and the sport is set in a ‘semi-open world’ that includes ‘emergent gameplay and sandbox elements’ with ‘hardly any’ scripted occasions.

The implication is that a lot of the sport is procedurally generated, much like a roguelike, however nonetheless has loads of puzzles and obstacles to take care of, all of which change in each playthrough.

It all sounds very encouraging, and the trailer under is definitely fairly spooky, with developer Frictional Games boasting of enhanced lighting results and their usually wonderful sound design.

The second Amnesia recreation, A Machine for Pigs, wasn’t developed by Frictional however 2020’s Amnesia: Rebirth was, and we didn’t notably look after that.

We’re unsure went mistaken although as their unrelated sci-fi recreation SOMA, from 2015, was wonderful, in order that they’re definitely not one-hit wonders.

There’s clearly much more to seek out out about The Bunker although, so we sit up for that and hopefully discovering out that the discharge date is not too far-off.
