Amnesia: Rebirth's trailers held fans over through the several months between the game's reveal and its release, which is scheduled for Oct. 20. The trailers reintroduced Amnesia's world and brought new mystery to the series. Here are all the video previews developer Frictional Games released for Amnesia: Rebirth.
Amnesia: Rebirth Announcement Trailer
Amnesia: Rebirth's first trailer was also the first news of the game. It established Rebirth as the first direct sequel to the original Amnesia game, building on the narrative presented in The Dark Descent after a brief foray into the many strands of story that appeared in 2013's A Machine for Pigs. It also signaled Frictional's return to the role of the developer after having served as publisher for The Chinese Room's A Machine for Pigs.
Amnesia: Rebirth Release Date Trailer
Frictional released the release date trailer several months later, on Sept. 15. This trailer showed the game's main character crash landing in a desert and exploring a (predictably) frightening cave. Along the way she runs into curious monsters, carries an alien compass, and experiences all manners of scares. About what we'd expect from an Amnesia game!
Amnesia: Rebirth Gameplay Reveal Trailer
A month after revealing the game's release date, Frictional dropped a gameplay trailer for Rebirth. Many of the core elements of gameplay appear preserved from previous entries in the series, including lantern management, manual carrying of objects, puzzle solving, and running from very spooky, poorly lit monsters. Again, it's Amnesia!
Amnesia: Rebirth - Story & Environments Trailer
Likely the final Amnesia: Rebirth trailer, the Story & Environments trailer shed some light on the plot of the new game. Salim, a crew-member on a plane that went down in the desert in 1937, narrates the trailer. Salim aimed to follow other crew-members through the mountains, leaving notes as he went. He's likely dead now, and the player will follow his path.
