THQ Nordic announced that the Alone in the Dark reboot will have a Spotlight livestream event happening on May 26, at 8 AM GMT+8. The show will focus solely on the new game, which was announced back in August 2022.
Fans of the series will finally get more information about the reboot as there wasn’t much information provided since the reveal from either THQ Nordic or Sweden-based developer Pieces Interactive.
What to expect from the event is pretty vague as the press release provided only mentions that the showcase will be “featuring not only new insights on the game, but also potentially unexpected revelations.”.
Here’s a quick description of the reboot provided by THQ Nordic.
“Alone in the Dark is a love letter to the ground-breaking original that lets you experience a haunting story through the eyes of one of the two protagonists: play as either Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood in this re-imagination of the classic survival horror game where Psychological Horror meets Southern Gothic. Explore your environments, fight monsters, solve puzzles, and uncover the uneasy truth of Derceto Manor…”
”Deep in the 1029’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?”
”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.”
