After being leaked earlier via Smartoys, THQ Nordic has officially announced Alone in the Dark for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. It’s a reboot of the series in development at Pieces Interactive (of Magicka 2 fame) and has been in the works since late 2019. Check out the first trailer below.

Set in 1920s America, the story sees Emily Hartwood looking for her missing uncle. She teams with Edward Carnby, a private investigator, and ventures to Derceto Manor to search for him. However, things take a turn and the pair encounter strange residents, monsters and portals leading to scary worlds. Both characters are playable and offer their own perspectives with unique cutscenes and levels.

The story is brand new, written by Mikael Hedberg (Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA) who is also the director. However, many of the characters, themes and places from the original trilogy are present. There are plenty of new monsters to encounter with Guy Davis, known for his collaborations with Guillermo del Toro, contributing to the designs. You can also look forward to a creepy soundtrack courtesy of Doom Jazz legend Jason Köhnen provides eerie and haunting melodies to create a tense, twisted and haunting audio atmosphere.

No release window has been announced for the reboot. Though currently in alpha state, there will be a playable teaser at Gamescom 2022 called “Grace in the Dark.” It features Grace from Alone in the Dark 2 as the protagonist and takes place before the main game. Whether it releases outside of the event remains to be seen so stay tuned.
