PlayStation Plus Looks To Be Getting A Horror Classic Soon

The Old New Nightmare

PlayStation recently announced its line-up of new additions to both the PlayStation Plus Extra game catalogue as well as a fresh round of Classics for PlayStation Plus Deluxe subscribers, but it seems as though one exciting classic game was missing from the Deluxe drop that might be on the way in the near future.

As spotted by Push Square, PlayStation’s social media in the UK as well as the PlayStation Access YouTube channel both referenced a game that wasn’t included in the official line-up before swiftly deleting or editing their content to remove any mention of it. That game is the PS1’s Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare.

With the brand-new “love letter” to the original game, Alone in the Dark, coming out very soon on March 20th, it makes total sense that we’d see PlayStation dig into the archives for an early entry that players can check out to drive a thirst for more from the pioneering horror franchise.

Assuming the game was slated to come to the service in time for the new Alone in the Dark’s pre-delay January 16th release date, and with likely two more new drops of PS+ games occurring between now and March 20th, it’s seeming very likely that Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare is added to the Classics library prior to the new game launching.

This year’s new take on Alone in the Dark will star David Harbour and Jodie Comer in the roles of Detective Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood, as they uncover the secrets of Derceto Manor in a love letter to the original game. Set in the deep South in the 1920s, it promises to be a mix of psychological horror and Southern Gothic, and hopefully – come March 20th next year – will revitalise the franchise for a whole new generation.
