Who or what is The Dark Man in THQ Nordic’s new Alone in the Dark?

A fresh teaser for Alone in the Dark reveals the terrifying Dark Man, and looks to bring ancient horrors to THQ Nordic’s new nightmare.

That is not Liam Neeson

While this is just a tease, with the promise of much more to come, the latest look at THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive’s Alone in the Dark reboot is a tantalizing one. Not only does the glimpse introduce The Dark Man, a malevolent force that haunts classic AitD hero Edward Carnby, but also pretty clearly hints at some kind of ancient Mesopotamian origin for both him and the game’s supernatural terrors.

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

Billed as “Psychological Horror meets Southern Gothic”, Alone in the Dark lands on Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the PC, this fall. Stay tuned though, because there’s some kind of info drop planned for tomorrow (August 2nd), that could shed much more light on this dark tale.
