After much anticipation, the Amnesia: Rebirth release date has been announced by Frictional Games. There's great news for fans of horror games, too — it will definitely be arriving before Halloween 2020.
If you're somehow unfamiliar with the Amnesia franchise, it's a long-running series of games that put players into scary supernatural situations. The first game made quite the splash, especially because it did such a good job of spooking gamers halfway to death. Now, a third core game in the franchise is on the way — Amnesia: Rebirth is arriving just in time for Halloween!

In Amnesia: Rebirth, you take on the role of Tasi Trianon. She wakes up in the deserts of Algeria as the apparent sole survivor of a plane crash. How did she get here? What's going on? You'll have to rebuild the fragments of your past while trying to survive all the scary challenges thrown at your by Frictional Games.
"Amnesia is not just another haunted house spook-fest, but an emotionally harrowing journey", said Frictional's Creative Director Thomas Grip in a press release."We aim to go beyond simple jump-scares and to affect players on a deeper level. While Rebirth will contain the terrifying encounters and sights you expect from an Amnesia game, it has a lot more focus on narrative than previous entries in the series. We want the player to form a strong bond with Tasi and intimately share her tribulations. This will not be your run-of-the-mill horror experience."

The Amnesia: Rebirth release date is October 20, 2020 — slightly less than two weeks before the start of Halloween 2020. Odds are most of us will be stuck at home, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on some scares!
