After releasing Adventure Mode on Amnesia: Rebirth on PC last month, it has now arrived on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, with an even smoother experience on the PlayStation 5 running on 60 FPS as opposed to 30 FPS on PlayStation 4.
Frictional Games has added this as a free update for PlayStation players. This new mode allows them to enjoy the game’s deep adventurous story without the looming threat of monsters or darkness. The removal of monster encounters and increased illumination in all dark areas result in a more relaxed exploration experience.
“The game still has its very serious theme and sometimes unnerving ambiance, but the new mode feels a lot more like an Indiana Jones type of adventure in places where it would otherwise be more of a horror experience,” explains Fredrik Olsson.
Still following the story of Tasi Trianon, the Adventure Mode removes all life-threatening encounters with monsters, while keeping the stunning visual effects and lighting from the original game. The captivating narrative, cool environments, unique theme and challenging puzzles remain while players can explore freely without the concern of Tasi’s mental state. In addition, the Adventure Mode adds in some bonus puzzles to add to the experience.
“We believe that anyone who loves a good story-driven adventure game will be stoked about this new mode. Not everyone is into horror and we don’t want that to block people from experiencing Tasi’s story,” comments Fredrik. “We did something very similar when we released the Safe mode for SOMA. It was extremely well received and opened up the game to a much broader audience, something we hope will happen with Rebirth as well.”
Adventure Mode is now out on Steam, GOG.com, Epic Games Store, and PlayStation Store. Amnesia: Rebirth was originally released back in October 2020, and is currently available on PC and PlayStation for $29.99.
