There’s no better time than Halloween to release new video footage for a horror themed game. Frictional Games seems to agree with this by releasing a new trailer for their survival horror game Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, an indirect sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
Oswald Mandus, a whealty industrialist, will be the main character; in 1899 Mandus returns from an expedition in Mexico. Struck by a fewer, he has constant nightmares about a mysterious machine: little does he know that once he wakes up he’ll this dark machine in real life as well.
The game will feature several interlocking storylines, taking place in both the past and the present. The main focus of the game will be in having a normal person face a nightmarish situation.
The game will feature a first person perspective, without some of the elements present in The Dark Descent: developers wanted a totally new gameplay experience for veterans of the first game. To accomplish this Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs will feature larger areas and outdoor enviroments and a new enemy AI, making it harder for veterans to predict the enemies’ behaviour.
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs will be available on Pc but it still hasn’t a precise release date: publisher Frictional Games is pushing for an early 2013 release.
