Amnesia: The Bunker follows the story of Henri Clement, a French World War I soldier abandoned in a monster-ridden bunker to fend for themselves. A creature called The Beast stalks every sound from behind the walls, meaning players need to stay quiet as they work to find a way to escape the titular bunker. The open sandbox world the game takes place in is terrifying and atmospheric, painting a picture of the events that occurred under the ground before Henri arrived, making his situation seem been more horrific.

There have been several trailers for Amnesia: The Bunker. We’ve listed all of them below, with the latest at the top of the list to show fans exactly what to expect from the game.

Frictional Games shared a deep dive into three key aspects that make Amnesia: The Bunker unique around the time of launch. This is where fans learned so much about the core mechanics of the game.

Ahead of the game’s launch, Frictional Games released 10 minutes of gameplay from Amnesia: The Bunker to whet the appetites of fans.

In another trailer, fans learned how Henri can alert The Beast to their presence.

The story trailer gives players all the information they need to know about Amnesia: The Bunker’s story. The dialogue is taken directly from an NPC in the game.

The trench clip sets the scene for the game, but it’s not what players should expect when jumping into the game proper.

The monster encounter trailer is spooky and demonstrates what awaits players deep underground.

One of the most important trailers is the traps showcase video. This shows players exactly how they can die or draw out The Beast if they’re not careful.

With the gas grenade trailer, Frictional Games showed fans a new tool that players could use to hide and advance around the bunker.

The atmosphere teaser trailer shows off just how scary Amnesia: The Bunker truly is.

In the breaking down doors trailer, fans learned that not every puzzle will have a satisfying solution. At times, they’ll need to put their lives at risk to access information or items.

Fire and explosives were the focus of this trailer, demonstrating how these elements can open up new paths and close off others to both players and The Beast.

The gun showcase trailer made players feel confident in their ability to defend themselves. How foolish they were to think something like a weapon could help them.

The announcement trailer for Amnesia: The Bunker gave very little about the story away.
