The Alone in the Dark remake has just received a haunting new teaser trailer
THQ Nordic has published a very short teaser trailer for the forthcoming Alone in the Dark remake to mark Halloween, and despite being little more than twenty seconds long, it’s as terrifying as lifelong fans of the franchise would wish. While the new Alone in the Dark video provides no strong indications as to what the end product will be like, the absence of concrete information may make the title seem even more appealing.
Many believe the original Alone in the Dark, released in 1992, to be the first real survival horror experience, having been accorded the moniker when the Resident Evil series popularised it in 1996. Alone in the Dark was clearly a one-of-a-kind specimen at the time, brooding, secretive, and drawing inspiration from horror legends such as H.R. Giger and H.P. Lovecraft. While it’s likely to be overshadowed in the modern era by recently resurrected genre titans like Resident Evil and Dead Space, the adherence to tense survival horror combat and interesting 1920s flair seen in the first trailers indicate that this new Alone in the Dark title could well live up to the high bar set by its cohorts.
