THQ Nordic will present an Alone in the Dark showcase later this week.
The presentation will be viewable on YouTube and Twitch on May 25 at 5pm PT / 8pm ET (May 26 at 1am BST / 2am CEST).
It promises to “unveil answers to some of the most pressing questions surrounding the game”.
The third-person single-player horror game has been in development for five years at THQ’s Swedish studio Pieces Interactive, with Mikael Hedberg (Amnesia, SOMA) directing and writing the game and monster designs by Guy Davis (Evolve, Pacific Rim).
According to THQ, the new game is “a love letter to the original” which is targeting “a classic third-person horror game mix” of “strange and interesting characters, a dense atmosphere and thrilling combat”.
1992’s Alone in the Dark is credited as being a forefather to the survival horror genre, releasing four years before the original Resident Evil, and developer Pieces Interactive said it was determined to recapture the atmosphere of the original.
“Playing as Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood, explore the various environments, fight monsters, solve puzzles and discover the terrible truth about the mansion of Derceto,” the game’s official description reads.
“In the deep south of the United States during the years 1920, Emily Hartwood’s uncle disappears. Accompanied by the private detective Edward Carnby, she goes looking for him in the manor of Derceto, a mental asylum where something is lurking.
“You will encounter strange occupants, nightmarish kingdoms, dangerous monsters, and uncover an evil conspiracy. At the confluence of reality, mystery and madness, the adventure that awaits you risks undermining your certainties. Who are you going to trust, what are you going to believe, and what are you going to do next?”
