Insanity runs amok in the newest look at Alone in the Dark

Set in the old Derceto Manor, this year’s Alone in the Dark reboot looks to serve up lots of tension, with a side order of insanity.

Well, it’s ‘Lovecraftian’ so…

A long time coming, Alone in the Dark is finally set to reboot the iconic horror game series this year. Developed by Swedish company Pieces Interactive, the title will bring back original hero and PI Edward Carnby (played by David Harbour), plus add a second playable character with Emily Hartwood (Jodie Comer), a woman with a connection to the case who is also the catalyst for Carnby’s involvement.

Publisher THQ Nordic calls the game’s theme “Psychological Horror meets Southern Gothic”, and from this latest look, that’s very fitting. While you won’t find any action in this new trailer, you will see some disturbing characters, and get a feel for what looks to be a creeping horror.

Alone in the Dark is a love letter to the ground-breaking original, allowing players to experience a haunting story through the eyes of one of the two protagonists: play as Edward Carnby, portrayed by David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy), or Emily Hartwood, portrayed by Jodie Comer (Free Guy, Killing Eve) in this reimagined classic survival horror game, where Psychological Horror meets Southern Gothic. Explore your surroundings, battle monsters, solve puzzles, and uncover the unsettling truth of Derceto Manor.

The compelling story by Mikael Hedberg (SOMA, Amnesia: The Dark Descent), the exceptional monster design by legendary Guillermo del Toro collaborator Guy Davis, and the haunting Doom Jazz melodies by legend Jason Köhnen come together to create a chilling and atmospheric survival horror experience.
