After it leaked last night, THQ Nordic has officially announced Alone in the Dark, which is a reimagining of the classic 90s franchise for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
The premise of the game is a little bit different in the sense that it is a brand new game with a new story that is written by the minds behind SOMA and Amnesia, but it’s said that it will incorporate characters, places and themes from the original trilogy. It’s said to be a story/game that brand new fans can enjoy, but those who have played the other games will be able to recognise a lot of things in the game.
The game takes place in the Deep South in the 1920s where Emily Hardwood is searching for her uncle alongside private investigator Edward Carnby. You can expect to see strange residents, nightmarish realms and dangerous monsters.
It was also revealed that there will be a prologue chapter where you play as Grace from Alone in the Dark 2 that is playable at Gamescom, We’ll be there, so we’ll hopefully be able to bring you hands-on directly from the show.
Alone in the Dark looks quite a decent way along, so hopefully we’ll be able to bring you more information in the very near future. In the meantime, you can read a lot more about the game and check out more screenshots over on the PlayStation Blog.
