Frictional Games picked up steam the last few days, teasing its next project, treating fans to found footage and audio clips to piece together. Today, the acclaimed horror developer, best known for hits like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Soma, finally unveiled its upcoming game: Amnesia: Rebirth. The game is set to come out later this year.

Amnesia: Rebirth is a brand new story set in the world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. This time around, you retrace the journey of Tasi Trianon through the desolate Algerian desert. It's said her quest will "explore the limits of human resilience." Details are light on specifics, but here are some tidbits from the press release: you pull together fragments of a shattered past, time is against you, and if you fail, you will lose everything. To get a glimpse at the game, you can watch the reveal trailer above, which focuses on a downed airplane.

Valorant Preview: A Deep Dive On The New Hero-Based Tactical Shooter From Riot Games

Valorant Preview: A Deep Dive On The New Hero-Based Tactical Shooter From Riot Games

Last October, when Riot Games announced a slate of new titles, one of the outliers was Project A, a first-person shooter that combines the popular hero-based shooter genre with tactical gameplay. We now know Project A is officially called Valorant, and will launch on PC this summer as a free-to-play title. I traveled to Santa Monica, Calif., to spend a day in the offices of Riot Games to not only learn about the upcoming shooter from all angles, but also play it for several hours.

While most of the games announced during Riot's 10-year-anniversary stream are set in the League of Legends universe, Valorant is unique in that it does not feature any connection to Riot's juggernaut IP. "It was actually a point of debate for a while: Should we put this in [the League of Legends universe] or should we not?" says game director Joe Ziegler. "It was really hard to get the concept of this crisp, tactical shooter with mechanical bullets firing out of your gun, and then putting that on Ryze or putting that in the hands of a Piltover soldier ... it didn't mesh well with the fantasy we were creating. We needed to create a thing that we thought would be the right combination of this tight, mechanical, physical gameplay with this very rich, creative, well-established concept of abilities that we were playing."
