Alone in the Dark is returning, and this time it’s being developed by Pieces Interactive, all put together by its new owner and publisher THQ Nordic.
This reimaging of the 90’s cult classic was revealed during THQ’s GamesCom showcasealthough details on its release date weren’t forthcoming.
Here’s everything we know about Alone in the Dark including the pending release date, details on the gameplay, characters, and story, along with information on platforms and where it will be available to buy once it releases.
Alone in the Dark Release Date
There hasn’t been an official release date set for Alone in the Dark yet, but we’ll keep you updated should Pieces Interactive or THQ Nordic offer any possible hints at our return to Derceto Manor.
Gameplay was shown at Gamescom, and while it did look like development had been progressing well for at least a few years, it’s difficult to say how complete the game actually is at this stage.
Alone in the Dark Story and Gameplay
Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood are back to solve puzzles, explore the deep hallways of the Derceto Manor in the gothic American south during the 1920s, and uncover the mystery of Emily’s missing uncle, Jeremy Hartwood.
While it’s a reimagination of the classic 90’s Survival Horror game, Derceto has changed to a home for the mentally ill, where Jeremy Hartwood was a resident likely driven insane by and its nightmarish disciples.
Ammunition will of course be scarce, there will be lots of dangerous monsters to face, and you will encounter many strange residents in Derceto as you uncover a plot of rising evil written by Mikael Hedberg, known for putting together the stories for SOMA and Amnesia.
