Atari confirms May release for Alone in the Dark

  • Posted January 17th, 2008 at 08:46 EDT by

One of the original videogame horror titles is set to make its appearance on the PlayStation 2, Wii, Xbox 360 and PC later this year, with Atari finally confirming the game will be released in May 2008.

Alone in the Dark 5 will be a revival of a horrific videogame series which began in 1992 for the PC. While a PlayStation 3 version is in development, a release date has not yet been given, though it is expected to hit shelves some time later this year.

Alone in the Dark 5 places gamers into a modern day setting filled with detailed puzzles, non-figurative story and horrific settings. The game will be divided into a number of 30-40 min episodes, which will all end in cliffhangers, leaving the player gasping for more. Each time the player loads up a saved file, a video will appear showing what happened in the previous episode, giving gamers a more immersive feel to the story and environment like a classic horror flick.

A handheld release is also planned, though it is currently unknown when it will arrive.
