Frictional Games have had a bit of a chokehold on horror for a while now, thanks to their work on Penumbra, SOMA and, most notably, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. After years of releases, the team are still going strong, as they’re gearing up for the release of Amnesia: The Bunker for PC and consoles this May. With a new release forthcoming, some horror fans are wondering whether or not they’ll be able to enjoy Amnesia: The Bunker as part of Xbox Game Pass.
The answer is no, Amnesia: The Bunker will not be available at launch on Xbox Game Pass, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Frictional Games won’t partner with Xbox to release the game on Game Pass in the future.
Frictional Games and Xbox clearing have a somewhat working relationship at the moment, with all the Amnesia titles and SOMA being available on Xbox Game Pass. With that kind of pattern, it certaintly wouldn’t be surprising to see Amnesia: The Bunker following suit later on in the game’s life, but expect that to happen around Halloween at the very earliest. Again, no guarantees it’ll ever actually happen.
About Amnesia: The Bunker
Like all Amnesia games, The Bunker sees players being stalked by a mysterious and deadly creature, while you have to solve puzzles in order to progress and escape. Despite that, Amnesia: The Bunker promises to be more open-ended with its design, with players able to make significant choices about how they want to progress. The monster will even adapt to your choices as well, which makes things just that little bit more terrifying.
You’ll play as Henri Clement, a French soldier who’s been left behind by his battalion and is forced to seek shelter in an abandoned WW1 bunker. Unfortunately for Henri, the resources he has are low, his flashlight makes too much noise and there’s an awful monster looking to eat him for breakfast. If that sounds like your kind of fun, and you want something quite different from the rather polarising Rebirth, Amnesia: The Bunker might just be for you.
Amnesia: The Bunker will launch on May 15th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X & S.
