A More Open-Ended Survival Horror Adventure Is Amnesia: The Bunker

The Amnesia series has had its ups and downs throughout the years, with later games largely adhering to the concept set in the initial installment. With the recently revealed Amnesia: The Bunker, the creator, Frictional Games, is making a significant effort to counter that trend.

This next installment, which will launch on PS4 in March 2023, does away with the linear framework in favor of a “open world” and emergent gameplay. As the title suggests, the game is set in a dimly lit World War I bunker, and you play as a French soldier who is, you guessed it, amnesic. You must investigate the bunker’s rooms and passageways while carrying a handgun with one bullet in it and a dynamo flashlight in order to survive its horrors.

The game, according to the press release, has an Alien: Isolation-style monster that follows you about while you play, although you are free to explore the game’s surroundings. Each task, challenge, and strategy for overcoming the game’s hurdles will have “many available solutions,” and how you play will “alter the result of how the game responds as a consequence.”

You won’t be totally defenseless this time, but it sounds like there won’t be much in the way of extra supplies. In order to solve riddles and get away from whatever is pursuing them, players will need to use their wits and the gadgets at their disposal. You can never know the bunker well enough because the location of supplies, threats, and things will alter on successive plays.

For the series, it seems like a move in the right direction; a new perspective may be just what it needs. Again, it’s coming to PS4 in March of next year; PS5 is not mentioned. Amnesia: The Bunker: What do you think? Turn off the lights in the following comment section.

PAYDAY 3 Developer Announces D&D Live Service Multiplayer

The Starbreeze cooperative multiplayer game Project Baxter is expected to follow PAYDAY. The official Dungeons & Dragons logo is on Starbreeze. However, we do not expect the studio to revere RPG settings like Larian did with Baldur’s Gate 3.

Starbreeze will develop and publish Project Baxter in 2026 for all major platforms. The company says it “will carry the signature Starbreeze game cornerstones of cooperative multiplayer, lifetime commitment through a Games as a Service model, community engagement, and a larger than life experience.”

Forgive the skepticism, but PAYDAY 3, Starbreeze’s latest release, lagged behind due to server issues that the CEO had to apologize for, taking two months to release the heist shooter’s first patch. It’s a disappointing story that may have gone unnoticed in a year with The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Kong: Rise of Skull Island, and The Walking Dead: Destinies.

Would you like a Starbreeze multiplayer live service D&D game? Is this to capitalize on the setting’s moment between Baldur’s Gate and the surprising good Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves?

Free Soccer Simulator Finally More Single Player on eFootball, But Not Like League

Konami promised that free-to-play soccer sim eFootball would add PES’ massively popular Master League mode, but while this month’s v3.20 update will add more solo content, you’ll have to wait. My League lets you play full seasons as a single player with changing weather and exclusive rewards to reduce the wait.

You’ll replace a real team from your league, like England or Italy. The gacha system unlocks players that you’ll use to fight the AI and win the table. Play through the mode as many times as you want, with custom cutscenes and other features to track your progress. It all seems like a way to make dream team gameplay appealing to offline players.

Online play is also getting better. A new tier system will match you with players of similar skill levels, and co-op will soon let you join strangers instead of friends. You can use emojis to discuss your matches’ successes and failures or strategize with new allies.

We assume new cards with perks will allow Konami to create “rarer” versions of players when they perform certain real-life feats. A new login feature will include a penalty-taking minigame where you must score a goal to climb a ladder and unlock in-game rewards like virtual currency. For now, that’s it.

The critically panned game improves, but not as fast as former PES fans would like. The gameplay is good, and there are more things to do, but without that meaty single-player mode, old-school franchise fans will always rank it lower. Konami should revive one of the best solo sports game modes soon.

This could reach 100 million by the end of the day as it’s shared worldwide and fans search for Easter eggs and secrets. How many times have you seen the new trailer?
