What day will Alone in the Dark be released? The venerable horror series is returning! Alone In The Dark is coming with a reboot that takes the franchise back to its horror origins, while modernizing the gameplay and presenting the story and action from a third-person over-the-shoulder perspective.

The game takes a new direction in a few areas as well, moving the game to the American South in the 1920s and allowing you to play as both Edward Carnby and Emily Hardwood. But Pieces Interactive is still tieing the experience back to the origins of the franchise. So be sure to read this post for everything we know if you are interested in Pieces Interactive’s remake of Alone In The Dark.

The Alone In The Dark Reboot release date is Wednesday, October 25, 2023, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. This date was announced at the Alone In The Dark Spotlight show, alongside confirmation the game won t be released on PS4 or Xbox One.

Alone In The Dark Story

As previously announced, the game will include a brand-new narrative that is set in the 1920s gothic American South.

Edward Carnby, the series’ stalwart protagonist, and Emily Hartwood, Jeremy Hartwood’s niece, are the two characters you’ll get to play. They each offer a distinctive gameplay experience because they have their own cutscenes and levels and are voiced by David Harbour and Jodie Comer, respectively.

The game takes you back to Derceto Manor, which is a mental hospital for the rich and wealthy full of strange creatures and evasive residents. Here you will uncover mysteries and a story related to Jeremy Hartwood.

As such, it sets the stage in a very similar way to the original game, showing a commitment to the origins of the series.

Alone In The Dark gameplay

As mentioned, the gameplay of this new game focuses mostly on the action from a third-person perspective. This reminds us of what we saw in the most recent Resident Evil remakes and The Evil Within.

On top of that, the gameplay will feature classic, adventure-style puzzles to solve as well as traditional action-adventure exploration for clues and hints to the story. You can see some small clips of that gameplay in the reveal trailer below:
