Some breaking news just in, the Alone in the Dark Remake will cast David Harbour and Jodie Comer in the pivotal roles of Detective Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood it’s just been announced. A recent spotlight video released by THQ Nordic gave horror aficionados a tantalising peek into the gameplay mechanics of this revamped version of the classic terror tale.
Alone in the Dark: A New Spin with Renowned Faces
The Alone in the Dark rejuvenation offers two character choices for players, embodied by Jodie Comer’s Emily Hartwood and David Harbour’s Edward Carnby. While the central narrative will largely remain consistent, the manner in which NPCs interact with Hartwood and Carnby will differ, along with subtle shifts in the storyline. This suggests that horror enthusiasts will need to navigate through Alone in the Dark twice to fully comprehend the story.
Categorised as a survival horror quest, the Alone in the Dark rework is crafted on the Unreal Engine 4 platform, and is set for an October 25th, 2023 release. Gameplay mirrors the stylings of games such as the Resident Evil 2 remake and Resident Evil 4, with the Alone in the Dark update employing a similar over-the-shoulder viewpoint, exploration, and combat mechanisms synonymous with Capcom’s popular series. Given that the original Alone in the Dark was a significant influence on the inaugural Resident Evil instalment, it’s quite fitting that the updated version borrows from the newer Resident Evil editions.
Fans eagerly awaiting the full Alone in the Dark makeover will have to bide their time until October. However, in a treat for enthusiasts, a playable demo is accessible right away. Dubbed Grace in the Dark: Prologue, this demo, set prior to the main game, features the character Grace Saunders. The demo is available for download across all platforms, offering fans a sense of the game’s mood and feel, although it doesn’t include any combat sequences.
Exclusive Benefits for Pre-order Enthusiasts
Those convinced about the allure of the Alone in the Dark reimagining may wish to pre-order the game. Those who do so will be treated to the 1992 costume pack, enabling them to play the remake with characters reminiscent of the original Alone in the Dark characters rather than David Harbour and Jodie Comer. Additionally, a digital artbook and visual filters like sepia and black and white will be on offer for players to tailor their gaming experience.
Alone in the Dark is slated for an October 25th release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
