Alone in the Dark: Illumination packshot image
Alone in the Dark: Illumination is a PC-only horror game due out later this year, and will be shown in full at Seattle’s PAX Prime event later this month. Fondly remembered as the roots of the horror genre, Alone in the Dark began in the original 1992 DOS release, making a name for itself for its story based on Lovecraftian lore. It’s undergone a number of different reboots already, including the Resident Evil style Alone in the Dark: A New Nightmare, and the poorly received Alone in the Dark 2008 reboot. Now it’s back with Alone in the Dark: Illumination, which Atari pitches as a re-imagined take on the classic survival horror series. In development at relatively unknown studio Pure, a teaser website has cropped up for Alone in the Dark: Illumination, with more expected to be shown in Autumn.

There are three types of screens in settings: fullscreen, windowed and borderless. Setting it to fullscreen|borderless will net you about 30-40 fps. (even with low settings)

Got it… let's say that I'm disappointed now. We've got another L4D clone that works on my NVidia GT 640M with 30-40 FPS (excluding the throttling problem), i3 processor and roughly 4 GB of free RAM.

Golden tick on CPU and RAM but a big red cross of disappointment on GPU. Time to upgrade.

Thanks! I'm going to upgrade to 1980x1080 monitor soon. Is that going to affect my FPS a lot? And will the game look better and a higher resolution, or just fit the bigger screen?

at fullHD(1080p) there are more pixel so your games look better! and your gpu will elaborate more pixel and there will be more gpu-usage, more stress for the gpu (higher temps, just a bit), so the gpu cannot keep the same framerate of the 720p resolution. for example: if you play a game at 720p,with 60fps --> at fullHD (SAME SETTINGS) you will get about 15-20 FPS less! your gpu is great for 1080p!

Yeah, I know my CPU is not made for gaming. I'm going to upgrade it soon to a i5 atleast, but for now I can say it gets the job done for most of the games, even though its a dual-core.
