During the first few weeks of this year we started seeing an influx of reports surrounding a new specific type of bug. It seemed text, crosshair, interaction icons and menu art started disappearing a bit randomly, while people were playing the game. We now feel confident that the problem has been solved.
In this patch we believe we’ve finally managed to identify and fix the most serious bug we’ve had left to fix – the one where some players have gotten stuck on black screen immediately after the intro.
With version 1.2 on PC we also bring you Custom Stories and modding tools!
Patch 1.1 for Amnesia: Rebirth is out now on all PC platforms. If testing goes smoothly, it will be out sometime tomorrow on PS4 as well.
This patch is mostly about bug fixes, both some linux focus, some blockers and other minor issues. The most notable change for most players will be the ability to skip memories by holding the interact button (left mouse button or right trigger if on a gamepad).
We have just released a new patch for Amnesia: Rebirth, containing a few improvements worth pointing out.
The change that will most likely have the biggest effect on the experience is the “toning down” of the “fear flashes”.
After five years of work we are finally able to announce that Amnesia: Rebirth will be released on 20th October 2020!
Check out the latest trailer!
Ten years ago Amnesia: The Dark Descent heralded a new generation of horror. Five years ago, SOMA took us to fresh depths of terror. Now, steel yourself for the next nightmare as Frictional Games prepares to release Amnesia: Rebirth this autumn. A new story set in the world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Rebirth represents yet another evolutionary leap for Frictional games, challenging players to remain calm in the face of unimaginable terror.
I like to think of myself as a fun-loving and easy-going guy who strives towards creativity on an exceptional level. Over the course of my career I’ve learnt, about myself, that I am not truly happy unless I am involved in something that sets out to break boundaries and creates something truly unique.
It is now one year since we released SOMA which means it is time for an update on the current state of things.
