Amnesia: The Bunker promises a ‘semi-open world’ with sandbox-style survival horror


The groundbreaking Amnesia horror series is returning with a brand new game called Amnesia: The Bunker, and this time developer Frictional Games is doing things a little differently. The new game will feature unscripted survival-horror gameplay in a sandbox-style semi-open world, enabling complete control of moment-to-moment decisions, and you’ll even get a gun and a flashlight to help smooth things out.

Like its predecessors, Amnesia: The Bunker will be set in the past, but will continue to bring the series a little closer to contemporary times. Players will step into the role of a French soldier trapped inside a dimly-lit First World War bunker, who’s being hunted by… something. Naturally, he has no idea why he’s there or what’s chasing him—only that he needs to escape. I’m sure he’ll be fine.
