Developer Frictional Games’ classic castle horror Amnesia: The Dark Descent has unleashed an even greater terror upon PS4 players today, with the release of a new Hard Mode that’s most certainly is not for the faint of heart.
Amnesia’s Hard Mode isn’t entirely new, of course; it first emerged on PC and Xbox One last September, when Frictional’s seminal horror made its debut on Microsoft’s console. And for those with little regard for their own emotional wellbeing, Hard Mode is quite the treat, tweaking the original game’s already fraught design to reach truly masochistic levels.
