Atari announced that Alone in the Dark will launch for the Windows platform simultaneously with the version for Xbox 360. The original Alone in the Dark is the video game that launched survival gaming and set the standard within the genre. Developed by Eden Games, Alone in the Dark returns and this time combines the survival experience with use of state-of-the-art real-time physics and advanced environmental interaction. The next-generation version of survival is action-orientated and includes a highly detailed, open environment.
In 1992, the first Alone in the Dark title for PC ushered in an entirely new level of immersion in gaming, utilising fear as a tool to manipulate and engage the emotions of the player. Fourteen years later, the franchise returns to the PC and to the newest generation of video game hardware, Xbox 360, taking full advantage of the technological advances of both platforms and designed to satisfy the sophisticated demands of a new gaming audience. All that remains is for as to find out if the game is good enough to have the same effect on players as its predecessor did.
Alone in the Dark is returning to the format that launched survival gaming - the PC - and after nearly a decade and a half of ever-accelerating technological progress, we anticipate that the title will again take the lead on next-generation consoles with the Xbox 360 and PC, said Steve Tucker, Director of Marketing, Atari. This is one for gamers to keep an eye on in the coming months as Atari and Eden begin to reveal details that will demonstrate how we will fulfill these promises.
Boasting an original gameplay structure designed to appeal to a mass audience, Alone in the Dark aims to go beyond expectations for a next-generation title and re-establish itself as the genre-leader on the Windows platform and Xbox 360. It seems that Atari and Eden have been paying close attention to detail in order to get this game just right, as the next-gen future of the franchise may rely on the success of this title.
