Amnesia: The Bunker is a first person horror game develop and published by ‘Frictional games‘. Amnesia: The Bunker is said to be coming out the 23rd of May 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and pc. X35 Earthwalker wasn’t impressed with the original Amnesia. Amnesia: The Bunker looks like it’s going to bring a heavier hit. Let’s take a look.
Amnesia: The Bunker is set in a World War one bunker. You are a french soldier Henri Clément. There’s no safety here though. It’s Amnesia. You should know what to expect. Dark areas, sounds, noises, danger, and ultimately you have to stay alive and sane. Almost as important as staying alive is keeping the lights on. Keep them on.
You aren’t defenceless in Amnesia: The Bunker. You have a revolver but only a single bullet in it… maybe you can find more. You can also get your hands on grenades which have an obvious purpose. Use a noisy dynamo flashlight and there’s also a pocket watch too. You know there’s puzzles involved. So players will have to use some of the old brain.
Amnesia: The Bunker has a crafting system so that means scavenging like a hobo is needed. Craft for the things you need to survive which is quite a bit as there’s what’s described as an “ever-present threat”. Something is here with you and it’s focused on you. Your moves and the sounds you make gets its attention. It will react. So players can’t have a linear play style. You must mix things up. We even heard there’s some randomised and unpredictable stuff going on. It’s been said that Amnesia: The Bunker makes sure no play through is the same.
We checked out some Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay and it’s what we expected. The visuals do look very good. The details are just alright. The lighting is excellent. The atmosphere doesn’t impress us but we are sure it will hit different when you played. We hope this game nails the mechanic of the major threat reacting to your actions and off course how your decisions affects the outcome. This mechanic alone when done right will be the game changer. Amnesia: The Bunker has been described as ‘semi-open world’.
Overall Amnesia: The Bunker looks like a very good game. When you factor in everything it seems like there’s a lot going on for a game of this type. There’s mysteries to be solved as well like what happened to the other soldiers and where are the officers? Hopefully most of these mysteries can only be learned and solved through information int her game and not spelled out for you. The exploring and diligent players can benefit. The developers ‘Frictional games’ have done a very good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for this game. Now Amnesia: The Bunker may have an ever-present threat but it doesn’t even bother… the ‘Earth Walk!’
