We talk about Alone in the Darkwhich is back with an interesting ‘remake’ starring Hollywood actors and we will tell you when it comes out or its release date, what is its story, trailers, free prologue, PC requirements and more details about this intriguing game.
This article will be updated as new information about this title is revealed.
Brief history of the franchise Alone in the Dark
Inspired by his love of the stories of HP Lovecraft, the films of Dario Argento and George A. Romero, the French programmer Frédérick Raynal decided to direct a horror game with 3D polygonal graphics that would make history. In 1992, Infogrames published the first Alone in the Dark for PCs with the operating system MS-DOS.
In this game we control the private investigator Edward Carnby or the mysterious Emily Hartwood trapped in a mansion full of zombies and supernatural dangers while they try to discover its secrets. The game was an immediate success that encouraged the studio to release Alone in the Dark 2 y 3 in the following years.
In 2001, Infogrames released a new game in the franchise looking to capitalize on the success of “imitators” such as Resident Evil y Silent Hill
There were two new attempts to revive the saga in 2008 and 2015. The first came out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and he is remembered more for Atari’s threats to sue those who gave him bad reviews than for the game itself. The other game, subtitled Illumination is considered one of the worst action games of that year.
As you can see, the saga is not at its best. Will the new game be able to return her to her former glory?

What is the story of the game?
Being a ‘remake’ of the 1992 game, the story of Alone in the Dark It’s the same as that classic. In the 1920s, Emily Hartwood—concerned by the strange disappearance of her uncle Jeremy hers—hires private detective Edward Carnby to investigate what happened to him.
Together they visit Derceto Mansion, the “mental rest” place where Jeremy was being held, to try to find clues to his whereabouts. But what they discover is a supernatural conspiracy related to the legend of “the dark man.”
When you start playing, you can choose between one of the two protagonists. Our decision will influence the dialogues with the characters and the development of the plot. We’ll have to play twice—once with Edward and once with Emily—to get the full story.
This game is written by Mikael Hedberg who we admire for his work on horror games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent y SOMAwhich in our opinion has one of the best stories in the genre.
The actors of Alone in the Dark
The biggest surprise that awaited us in the presentation video of the ‘remake’ of Alone in The Dark was to discover that the game will star David Harbor and Jodie Comerwho playing detective Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood respectively.
We know David Harbor very well from his work on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things and in movies like Black Widow y Violent Night. We will also see him in the next movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Thunderbolts.
Jodie Comer rose to popularity with her role as the psycho Villanelle in the excellent series Killing Eve. We also saw her in the funny Free Guy: Taking Controlin the last duel and making a cameo as Rey’s mother in the disappointing the rise of skywalker.
