[Rumour] New Alone In The Dark Game Leaked Before Official Reveal
Update: The Alone In The Dark reboot has a trailer. Check it out below. The game will be out for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series; no release date has been confirmed yet.
A leak has appeared that a remake of the 1992 game Alone in the Dark is in the works. And will be announced later today.
Smartoys, the Belgian Retailer, posted a listing for the game, which appears to be published by THQ Nordic, along with box art and some screenshots, which was backed up by reputable insider AestheticGamer, who shared more information and screenshots on Twitter.
Seems a website posted a bit early the thing I was teasing a few days ago, indeed Alone in the Dark 1 is being remade in the style of RE:2. Be announced properly later today. Southern Gothic Horror w/Lovecraft. Story by the guy who wrote SOMA & Amnesia: The Dark Descent. pic.twitter.com/IqpWK6JwkN

The remake has been allegedly described as a “psychological horror meets Southern Gothic”.
This was then followed by a description which reads as:
“This love letter to the cult ’90s game will take you through a story that’s as sinister as it is memorable through the eyes of one of the two protagonists,
Playing as Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood, explore the various environments, fight monsters, solve puzzles and discover the terrible truth about the mansion of Derceto.
In the deep south of the United States during 1920, Emily Hartwood’s uncle disappeared. Accompanied by the private detective Edward Carnby, she looks for him in the manor of Derceto, a mental asylum where something lurks.
You will encounter strange occupants, nightmarish kingdoms, dangerous monsters, and uncover an evil conspiracy. At the confluence of reality, mystery and madness, the adventure that awaits you risk undermining your certainties. Who are you going to trust, what are you going to believe, and what are you going to do next?”
Although the shop listing almost certainly confirmed the game’s existence, AestheticGamer then took to Twitter to further confirm it.
“Indeed, Alone in the Dark 1 is being remade in the style of Resident Evil 2. Be announced properly later today. Southern Gothic horror with Lovecraft. Story by the guy who wrote Soma and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.”
THQ Nordic will be hosting a digital showcase on 12 August at 12:00 PM (PT) / 3:00 PM (ET) / 8:00 PM (BST) — that’s 13th August 3:00 AM (GMT+8) for us Southeast Asians — so the game will likely be officially announced there.
The original Alone in the Dark is credited as a forefather to the survival horror genre, released four years before the original Resident Evil. The game is set in 1920s Louisiana and tasks its protagonists, Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood, with escaping a haunted mansion.
