Bundling together Amnesia: The Dark Descent, the expansion Amnesia: Justine, and the sequel Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the Amnesia Collection is coming to PlayStation 4 on November 22, Frictional Games announced today. Available digitally through the PlayStation Store for $29.99 USD/£23.99, PlayStation Plus members in Europe who pre-order will save 25%. The pre-order isn’t up in North America yet, so it remains to be seen if the same PS+ discount will apply.
“From the creators of SOMA, the Amnesia series ushered in a new age of horror gaming,” Frictional says. “Rather than cut-scenes and forced jump-scares, the Amnesia series wrapped fragile players within its grim embrace, beckoning them to explore and survive amid the darkness as it pulled at the frayed edges of sanity.”
Discussing the titles, Frictional mentioned how Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was developed by The Chinese Room (Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture). While Frictional initially expected a game lasting just one or two hours, The Chinese Room’s “ambitions went far beyond that, and in the end it turned into a full-featured release.”
Amnesia: Justine, meanwhile, is a lesser known game that was made as part of a promotion for Portal 2. “Justine is a shorter game, taking the form of a series of trials and is heavily inspired by films such as Saw and the historical persona of Elisabeth Báthory,” they add.
Here’s descriptions for each title:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring its eerie pathways, you must piece together Daniel’s troubled memories and uncover the horror that lies deep below.
In Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus wakes in his bed wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. All he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it’s up to him to save them.
Amnesia: Justine puts you through a series of trials constructed by a demented mind. Will you risk your own life to save others?
Frictional Games didn’t say if any changes were being made to the Amnesia games for PS4.
