After rumours began to swirl about a return earlier this week, we can confirm that Alone in the Dark is indeed coming back! This classic 90's horror franchise has been dormant for some time, with THQ Nordic now in the driving seat for its return.
The publisher has announced the new title at its 2022 showcase, which featured 14 games in total. For now, the new entry is simply titled 'Alone in the Dark', and it'll be a remake of sorts containing elements of the first three games in the series.
"The famous horror franchise makes its return! This re-imagination of the original trilogy aims to scare you to the bone and returns to infamous locations with a whole new story and mythical places to explore. Alone in the Dark is developed by Pieces Interactive in Sweden and will be coming to PC, Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5."
Now, THQ Nordic says that this is a completely original story, while incorporating characters, locations and themes from the classic games. We're not 100% sure how that'll work, but we're imagining something along the lines of the recent Resident Evil remakes, where certain liberties were taken compared to the originals.
This is looking pretty impressive from the trailer alone, and we're intrigued to see how the three games will be remixed to create something new for next-gen. It's been a long time coming, but Alone in the Dark is finally making its grand return!
Are you excited for this next-gen spookfest? Let us know down in the comments!
Looks a lot like the RE2 remake but that's a good a thing
The first game scared the hell out of me. I sure hope they stay true to the roots.
I was not a fan of the 360 "Alone in the Dark" gersion but happy to give new one a chance.
YESSSS!!! My favorite horror franchise! FINALLY!! I've been waiting soooooooo long!
This looks awesome!
I've never played any Alone in the Dark game but I'm intrigued because I like the genre.
evil within vibe
I enjoyed the Ps3 AITD always regret trading it in lol.
LOL. I remember playing this.
I’ve only played the Xbox 360 reboot and despite it being viewed as mediocre by the majority, I thought it was decent. I’m looking forward to this trilogy remake though, it looks fantastic. Definitely a day one buy for me.
I remember playing Alone in the Dark back in the early 90s on Amiga and couldn't get to understand how to play it. My early teen mind couldn't get around the style. I remember Carnby having a blue suit and a puzzle involving Vivaldi 4 seasons. And Pirate Zombies. Not as much fun as LeChuck
Looking forward to this! I played a few of these back in the day. Excited to see they are bringing this back. Curious how they’ll be incorporating the first three into one.
