World War I horror Amnesia: The Bunker will be released on May 16 Liberal-news

Last month, Frictional Games announced that its hit horror series would be returning with Amnesia: The Bunker, taking its trademark World War I scares. We now know that the game will launch on May 16 for PC and consoles.

The Bunker follows Henri Clement, a French soldier who has been separated from his battalion and trapped inside the titular wartime bunker. At least he’s not completely alone… a mysterious and deadly monster is trapped in there with him and I’m sure everything will work out. World War I regalia aside, Amnesia: The Bunker seems to have everything you’d expect from the series: a spooky setting, a menacing stalker, and plenty to do.

This is Amnesia’s first foray into a sandbox environment with some unscripted elements, where items, threats, and resources change every game. I’m sure this will keep things fresh for replays, but I imagine respawns are a little less forgiving when you don’t know what to expect. New tools are also making an appearance, like an old-school pocket watch and a divisive pistol that can be seen in the announcement trailer. Frictional Games has also been releasing short clips on its Youtube channelshowing off some of the environments, physics-based puzzles, and more, if you want to take a closer look.

The indie horror series has been hugely influential since its debut, and for good reason. AliceB decided to save Amnesia: The Dark Descent for the 2010 RPS Time Capsule, arguing that “we can’t deprive future generations of the chance to get stuck in a flooded dungeon, desperately jumping from box to floating box.”

Amnesia: The Bunker makes its way to Steam other The epic games store on May 16. It will also be released on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
