THQ Nordic has its showcase tomorrow morning and rumours started swirling earlier this week that an Alone In The Dark reboot was set to be revealed. This comes after THQ Nordic acquired the rights a few years ago.
Ahead of the expected announcement, information about the reboot, as well as the box art and also several screenshots were posted on Belgian retailer Smartoys, before being posted on Resetera.
