Although it was almost certain after the recent leaks, the rumors have come true: The horror classic Alone in the Dark from 1992, which is considered the first survival horror game ever, is getting a real remake.

This is what awaits you in Alone in the Dark Remake
As you can probably already guess, well-known characters and locations return in the remake. Just like in the 1992 original, you can switch between the characters Edward Carnby und Emily Hartwood

But a lot will also change in terms of play. Instead of the classic perspective with a fixed camera and tank controls, the remake will offer a third-person perspective, which in the first trailer is quite reminiscent of the remakes of the Resident Evil series. But it’s best to see for yourself how the two heroes dissect their sinister enemies with shotgun and pistol:
