Alone in the Dark

Release Date: 20th March

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S

Set in the haunted Derceto mansion in 1920s Louisiana, Alone in the Dark drops players into the role of private investigator Edward Carnby and his task to investigate “strange occurrences” in an eerie manor. As players explore, they’ll encounter supernatural phenomena and unravel a dark and intricate storyline involving occult rituals, ancient powers… and worse.

If this all sounds like many other survival-horror games you’ve played, it’s because Alone in the Dark was a huge influence on many other survival-horror games you’ve played– namely the Resident Evil series. We can’t wait for the return of this genre-defining classic very soon in 2024.
