The remake of Alone in the Dark is reinforced by signing two well-known actors in Hollywood. Jodie Comer and David Harbor They will play Emily Hartwood and Edward Carnby, respectively.

Two heavyweights sign for Alone in the Dark
David Harbor points out during the presentation attended by MeriStation that he already “knew about the previous installments” of the saga and that he is “interested in videogames in general”. The actor dons his detective hat to tackle the mystery at the Derceto mansion.
The game presents two differentiated paths depending on the protagonist you control. The characters that intervene will change their behavior If you drive to Hartwood or Carnby, bringing a different perspective to the overall narrative arc. You can also expect slight modifications that alter the experience between one and the other. “We needed great actors”, reveals the editor. Her dream has come true.
Those responsible explain that they want the remake to go “far beyond” the jumpscares. We can expect puzzles, moments of action and sections of investigation where the atmosphere will take the lead. “At the end of the day it is a haunted mansion, a kind of small compound that works as one more character”, points out. Frédérick Raynal, creator of the 1992 installment, has participated in the development of the remake. The creative believes that Pieces Interactive “has done an exceptional job respecting the roots of the original.”
Like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Alone in the Dark uses Unreal Engine 4 despite working exclusively for next-generation consoles. The moments of action will be transferred in a third-person shooter format that is inevitably reminiscent of other titles of the same depth, such as The Sinking City.
Alone in the Dark is scheduled for release next October 25 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
