Amnesia: The Bunker Gets A Two-Month Delay

Frictional Games cannot meet its previously set release date, but in return, the studio has set a date for the new Amnesia.


“The team here at Frictional has had a tough winter with a slew of illnesses that have affected the development. We are a small team, and things like this heavily impact production. It is important to us to do the game justice, and in light of these halts in production, we don’t wish to rush the end product. The team is working hard to make The Bunker the best it can be, and a few more weeks will make the crucial difference,” the studio said in a statement on Twitter. But given a two-month delay, it’s not that big of a deal.

We wrote the following about the game when it was announced in December: “Amnesia: The Bunker is the latest installation in the Amnesia franchise and a pivotal point in the beloved horror series. For the first time, players are equipped with high levels of freedom to impact gameplay, choosing their playstyle as they explore at will this semi-open world. With hardly any scripted events and constant tension brought about by an ever-present threat, it is up to each player to finesse their approach to survival.

Unlike previous Amnesia games, Amnesia: The Bunker will feature a new horror survival adventure incorporating emergent gameplay and sandbox elements. Players will be in total control of their moment-to-moment decisions. Armed with a revolver gun and a noisy dynamo flashlight, players will walk the course of an ill-lighted WW1 bunker on the shoes of a French soldier troubled by his amnesia and hunted by an otherworldly creature.

Amnesia: The Bunker will test players’ cleverness, courage, and ability to keep calm under pressure to make quick problem-solving decisions. There are multiple solutions to each task, puzzle, and approach to the game’s obstacles; it’s up to you to decide your moves. The tenebrous dark corridors and tunnels are perhaps the last of threats stalking your every move. When everyone is dead, rations are running low, and only one bullet is left in the gun barrel, it is up to you to face the oppressing terrors of the Bunker and make your way out alive.

In a semi-open world, Amnesia: The Bunker encourages the player to explore and experiment, using wits and whatever tools are at their disposal to overcome the looming horrors. Players will feel a stressful amount of power in their hands. Every decision will change the outcome of how the game responds as a consequence of the choices made. This new twist in gameplay adds new depths and constant tension to the game, forcing players to create new strategic paths in every playthrough.

Objects, threats, and resources change in every playthrough, with all-new levels of interaction with the world through puzzle-solving and tool handling. Experience hell on earth in an appalling fictional story with enhanced lighting and carefully designed sound effects for a real horror experience.

Amnesia: The Bunker is coming to Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in March. There is still no PlayStation 5 version.
