Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay is oppressive

Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay is oppressive

Like its predecessors in the Amnesia series, the upcoming horror game from Frictional Games is not a game for everyone. Amnesia: The Bunker shares a certain characteristic with other Amnesia games that is what makes them so popular: they provide a deep level of immersion in an oppressive atmosphere. The perspective of being trapped alongside an unknown threat that is hunting you down in an enclosed environment is quite terrifying but also appeals to the fans of the genre. Therefore, Amnesia: The Bunker has already caught the eye of many players who are eager to delve into such an experience.

If you are one of those, you will be glad to know that developer Frictional Games has released a new demo trailer showcasing 10 minutes of Amnesia: The Bunker gameplay. 



A new type of experience

The fans of the series will notice significant changes in the way that Amnesia: The Bunker approaches the action when compared to games like Amnesia: Rebirth. The new game is more of a sandbox survival experience than a linear narrative storyline, but the essentials are still there. Navigating an unknown and dark environment while being pressed for time with a nasty monster on your heels is an experience that will pump up your adrenaline and give you the chills. 

Amnesia: The Bunker even offers more chances for replayability because it's not a one-way journey through the WW 1 bunker where the French soldier Henri Clément is trapped. You have some wiggle room to react and think of different ways of progressing toward your goal of escaping alive from such a nightmarish place. You can even shoot the monster with your gun, even though all that it will probably do is piss it off.

Overall, Amnesia: The Bunker is exactly the kind of experience that the fans are looking for. It's as thrilling and scary as its predecessors but less tight, which is a huge bonus. In the end, no matter what you do in the game, you will have to face a terrible truth: you are not in control at any given time.

The release of the game is scheduled for May 23 on PC. You can use our comparator to get your Amnesia: The Bunker Steam key at the best price anytime.
