After numerous rumors and leaks in the past few days, THQ Nordic has officially announced and revealed an upcoming reboot for one of the fathers of Survival Horror - after acquiring the rights to the series in 2018 - during their recent THQ Nordic Digital Showcase event.
No release date has been announced for the Alone in the Dark reboot yet, but considering the game will be playable at Gamescom 2022 (taking place August 24th-28th) we can assume the official launch date won’t be so far off. Plus, it is being written by the lead writer forSOMA, another Horror title which was praised for its narrative.
Survival Horror has been booming lately, largely thanks to the immense success of the Resident Evil franchise. Alan Wake 2, for instance, is going full Survival Horror this time, and this new AitD reboot looks quite similar to the RE series, down to the quirky puzzles and over-the-shoulder perspective (from the recent Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake, as well as older titles).
