Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Pieces Interactive have announced a reboot of Alone in the Dark, which is a third-person survival horror series. The reboot is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

View the announcement trailer below:

Read details on the game below:

Return to Derceto Manor in this reimagination of Alone in the Dark, a love letter to the 90s cult classic horror game. Discovering that her uncle has gone missing, Emily Hartwood goes looking for him with the help of private investigator Edward Carnby. Arriving at Derceto Manor, a home for the mentally fatigued, they encounter strange residents, portals to nightmarish worlds, dangerous monsters—and ultimately a plot of rising evil and its followers.

Key Features:

  • A classic horror experience, featuring combat, puzzle, exploration, and story.
  • While presenting a completely original story, we incorporate characters, places, and themes from the 90s original trilogy.
  • Play as Edward or Emily and uncover Derceto’s mysteries from two perspectives, including completely different cutscenes and levels.
  • Set in the gothic American south in the 1920s, the game features a noir-setting with classical Lovecraftian horror elements, where the familiar meets the surreal.
  • Experience a deep psychological story that goes beyond the realms of the imaginable, by Mikael Hedberg, cult horror writer of SOMA and Amnesia.
  • Trapped inside the gothic mansion, you encounter mind bending anomalies and fight back the evil that has infiltrated the house…

I really want this to be good, but the trailer is not scary or even spooky at all. No one is alone or in the dark. I'm hoping for the best but prepared for the worst.

There's no horror games thats actually scary. For me outlast had jump scares which made me jump but that's about it. Still waiting for a true horror game that doesn't use predicable scares or jump scares to be scary

That was just a demo not a full game. However that would be a first and only scary game in a long time if it became a full game

I remember playing the one for PS1 as a kid, Alone in the Dark: A New Nightmare. That was a reboot too lol. As a survival horror fan I really hope this comes out and it's alright. RE could use some competition.

Ah, granddaddy of Survival horror genre as we know it. I vaguely remember playing it back in days and so-so liking it, so interested to see what will they do with reboot.

Cool vibe and setting. Not the coolest monster designs.
And frankly? Too many dead CG eyes. That was the scariest part.

The last one I played, on PS3 was terrible, so I pray this one knocks it out of the park.
