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.
We are looking for an Audio Designer to join our team to focus on the nitty gritty, the implementation of audio in our games.
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 are looking for an experienced 3D character artist for a full time position creating characters and monsters for our upcoming games.
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”.
Modding has been a huge part of Amnesia. For instance, over the years The Dark Descent has accumulated over a thousand mods and addons on ModDB. This flood of user content has been amazing to see and we are extremely grateful for the whole community surrounding it all.
It is time we gave something back!
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!
Over the last few weeks of spring we held another Frictional Fan Jam, the theme of the season being Spring and/or Rebirth. It yielded amazing works, but here are the winners we chose!
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.
