David Harbour and Jodie Comer will play Detective Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood, respectively, in Alone in the Dark. THQ Nordic recently published a new Alone in the Dark spotlight video, giving horror fans a better look at how this revamped edition of the horror classic will play.
Fans can select between two playable characters in the Alone in the Dark remake: Jodie Comer’s Emily Hartwood and David Harbour’s Edward Carnby. While the core story beats will be the same, NPCs will treat Hartwood and Carnby differently, and there will be some minor changes to the plot. This implies that horror enthusiasts will need to replay Alone in the Dark at least twice to get the whole image.
The Alone in the Dark remake, described as a survival horror adventure game, is being developed with Unreal Engine 4 and will be released on October 25, 2023.
The Alone in the Dark remake employs an over-the-shoulder viewpoint, exploration, and combat that would look at home in one of Capcom’s games. Because the original Alone in the Dark greatly influenced the first Resident Evil game, it’s only natural that the remake takes some cues from the newer Resident Evil titles.
Horror lovers will have to wait until October to experience the complete Alone in the Dark remake, but there is a playable trial available to try right now. This demo, dubbed Grace in the Dark: Prologue, takes place before the events of the main game and features a character named Grace Saunders. Fans should be able to download the demo on all platforms right now. It should provide fans of Alone in the Dark a solid sense of the game’s mood and tone, however, it should be noted that the demo will not include any combat.
Alone in the Dark launches on October 25 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
