Will check out Amnesia: rebirth, but do you think you will find the game too scary to finish? Fortunately, the developer Frictional Games is adding an adventure mode that promises to take the edge off its horror elements. Here’s how it works: You will still see enemies in the game, but they will not attack you. Thanks to better lighting, places that were previously the carpet in the dark will be easier to explore at your own pace. Adventure mode also includes a “few” bonus puzzles that players can solve. If you have already played through Amnesia: rebirth, the last point can convince you to shoot up the game again.
This is not the first studio has given players a chance to experience one of their games without dealing with all the associated horror elements. It came up with a similar “Safe mode” for 2015s SOMA. It’s also part of a growing trend of game creators adding these types of modes to their games, one of the more notable examples being the Assassin’s Creeds Discovery Tour.
Amnesia: rebirth The Adventure Mode update is free to download. If you do not already own the game, there is currently a 40 percent discount on Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG.
