[Update #2]: Frictional Games's next horror game will be a non-linear sandbox set in a desolate WW1 bunker.

[Update]: Amnesia: Rebirth's new Adventure Mode replaces otherworldly horror with puzzles.

If you're in the mood for adding a lot more stress and mental anguish into your life, albeit in a fun way, you'll be happy to hear that Amnesia: Rebirth has now finally been unleashed. Much like the original classic, Amnesia: Rebirth is all about exploring a highly atmospheric environment in search of answers, avoiding an assortment of spooky specters, and doing your very best to avoid freaking yourself out despite nothing scary happening just yet.

Since you can't exactly describe a horror game through words alone, allow me to also share with you the recently posted gameplay trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what Amnesia: Rebirth is trying to accomplish. Have a peek:

This should come as absolutely no surprise, but Amnesia: Rebirth is pretty much the original game, just more of it and with a few extra bells and whistles. So if you're a fan of Frictional Games and their style of psychological horror, chances are you'll have a pretty good time with Amnesia: Rebirth as well. On the other hand, if you found the original to be far too cumbersome or annoying to play, I'm afraid Amnesia: Rebirth will do very little to change your opinion.

Whatever the case may be, you can learn more about Amnesia: Rebirth, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at the official website. Oh, and if you're planning to buy it on Steam, it's worth mentioning that something has just gone haywire and so Amnesia: Rebirth has disappeared entirely from Steam. Frictional is already working on the issue, so expect it to be resolved in short order.
