Well surprise, surprise. Emerging from the shadows is the Alone in the Dark reboot, which will be getting a full on mini-showcase event later this week.
So not alone then
Did you forget about THQ Nordic’s revamp of the classic horror franchise Alone in the Dark? You’d be forgiven if you did, since there has been precious little news about the game, past its reveal late last year. But that dearth of information is about to come to a close, as the publisher sheds a little light on the gloom of this terror-tale.
Announced today, this week will see a mini-showcase event just for the game. And fans should expect that to dive into “new insights on the game” plus “potentially unexpected revelations”.
That would be just about anything, as really all we know is that the game’s setting will be a throwback to the original’s, and that there’ll be two playable characters. One of those will be Emily Hartwood, who’s story will be the impetus for the game’s narrative.
And the other? Why, that’d be Edward Carnby, naturally.
Deep in the 1920’s south, Emily Hartwood’s uncle has gone missing. Together with private investigator Edward Carnby, she embarks on a journey to Derceto Manor, a home for the mentally ill where something is lurking. You’ll encounter strange residents, nightmarish realms, dangerous monsters, and ultimately uncover the plot of rising evil. At the intersection of reality, mystery, and insanity, an adventure awaits that will change your core beliefs. Who can you trust, what will you believe, and what will you do next?THQ Nordic press release
As you can see there, the showcase is set for May 25th, at 8pm eastern time. On the flip side, the release of the game itself is still in the ether. We do know however, that when it does hit retail, it’ll be landing for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
