We are waiting for the official announcement to come today
I said the other day that Snitch pointed to a new Alone in the Dark game . This announcement is expected to be made at the THQ event today, but the game’s cover images and promotional text have already leaked.
It was my greatest wish that this new game to be announced had nothing to do with the new series. Even though it’s the Remake of the first game that went through my heart, this new announcement seems to do a job close to this wish.
Once in the game, we will again be able to choose between male and female protagonists, just like in the 1992 game: Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood. And once again we will try to uncover the terrible secrets of the cursed Derceto mansion.
It’s being called a remake of the original Alone in the Dark, but it’s also said to be “written by Mikael Hedberg, whose complex psychological storyline is SOMA and Amnesia.” Hedberg is also a very solid writer, but we’ll probably see how faithful the game will be to its story with additional explanations later.
The original cover of the game and the cover of the new game are as follows:
Alone in the Dark will be released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series in 2023.
