Amnesia: rebirth, like previous entries in the series, can be a tense and agonizing experience. At the same time, it is also an adventure game filled with puzzles to solve. If you’re a newcomer more interested in storytelling and puzzles (or just a returning gamer who wants to replay the game without facing the stressful madness mechanic), Frictional Games has added an adventure mode designed to cut down on the elements of the game. horror to be created. a more liberating exploratory experience.
Adventure Mode is now available on PC and will arrive in the PS4 version of the game in the coming weeks. The optional mode doesn’t change the story of Rebirth in any way, but the environments have increased lighting so you don’t have to wander around in the dark as much. When you enter a dark area, the game’s madness mechanic is disabled, so you are free to run around black rooms as you wish. The spooky audio / visual effects that affected the player’s sanity are also missing. Best of all, monsters will only attack if you engage with them first.
