A remake of 1992's Alone in the Dark has leaked ahead of its official reveal.
Developed by Pieces Interactive and published by THQ Nordic, the game, simple titled Alone in the Dark, appears to have leaked via Belgian retailer Smartoys. The listing has since been removed, but images and details from the listing have been posted by Twitter user Idle Sloth.
With this, we get a look at the boxart for the game, with Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC versions all available. Leaked screenshots show the game being played from a third-person perspective, with an over-the-shoulder camera view, much like the recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, and we've even got some details on the game.
The description describes the game as a “retelling” of Alone in the Dark, a game that is often namechecked as the originator of the survival horror genre. The new game's story has apparently be penned by Mikael Hedberg, who has previously written for SOMA and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
THQ Nordic announced back in 2018 that it had acquired the Alone in the Dark IP, and it seems this leaked remake is the fruits of that acquisition. We'll likely be getting an official announcement during the THQ Nordic Summer Showcase later today.
