Following Resident Evil and Dead Space, the year of horror remakes continues with the upcoming release of Alone in the Dark. The novelty is a “rethinking” of the original trilogy, which began with the legendary survival horror movie in 1992.
The game is being developed by Pieces Interactive and published by THQ Nordic. David Harbor (Stranger Things, Black Widow) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, The Protagonist) took part in the project. Written by Mikael Hedberg (SOMA, Amnesia).
1920s. Somewhere far south, Emily Hartwood’s uncle went missing. Together with private investigator Edward Carnby, she goes to Derceto Manor, an asylum for the mentally ill, where something strange is happening. You will encounter its mysterious inhabitants, see waking nightmares, fight monsters and uncover a conspiracy of evil. At the intersection of reality, mystery and madness, an adventure awaits you that will challenge everything you know about yourself. Who can you trust, what will you believe in and what will you do next?
But if you can’t wait that long, a free demo, which is a prologue to the main story, is already available for free download. It takes place a few weeks before the events of Alone in the Dark and does not feature the combat of the main game, but it will provide an interactive idea of what to expect from the project.
As part of the show, THQ Nordic announced that the game will be released on October 25, just in time for the start of Halloween. The project will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam).
