Above shown trailer suggests that its story premise will be set around a female survivor of a plane crash named Tasi Trianon. Rebirth begins with a new protagonist and setting that will reinvent aspects that has made Amnesia great.

Everything the series is known for will be there but instead of repeating a formula, you can expect twists. It will not only bring back that same atmosphere and jumpscares from hallways of The Dark Descent but keep it unpredictable.

Whether or not players will get into shoes of this new character to solve harrowing puzzles in first-person or being busy pushing limits to keep her sanity intact as she encounters many personal fear and tragedies are yet to be seen.

The Dark Descent was followed-up by a sequel by developer The Chinese Room titled Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs in 2013. Frictional Games launched sci-fi horror game SOMA in 2015 before they started working on Amnesia: Rebirth lately.
