Alone in the Dark Remake Release Date Revealed Along With Demo
A captivating showcase video that offered a glimpse into the game revealed that David Harbour and Jodie Comer will portray the series protagonists, Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood, respectively. David Harbour is known for his roles in Stranger Things and Black Widow, while Jodie Comer starred in Killing Eve and Free Guy. Together, Edward and Emily will embark on a mysterious journey within the eerie mansion of Derceto on the Alone in the Dark Remake release date of October 25, 2023.
But as an unexpected surprise, players can already experience a free playable demo of Alone in the Dark Remake called Grace in the Dark. Set a few weeks prior to the main game, it follows the adventures of a young girl named Grace Saunders as she explores the mansion on a quest to deliver a letter.
Unlike the Alone in the Dark Remake demo, the full game will include intense combat encounters with monsters. However, the prologue will deliberately omit combat, as its focus is on the perspective of a child protagonist and is intended as an introduction to the world again.
During the showcase, Frédérick Raynal, the creator of the original Alone in the Dark of 1992, expressed his approval and support for the Alone in the Dark Remake. Reflecting on how big remakes are getting these days, Raynal shared,
“With all the remakes going on today, you are never sure what you get at the end. I think that Mikael and the team at Pieces did a great job preserving the core feeling of the game. They even went further than everything I could expect 30 years ago.”
Players who choose to pre-order before the Alone in the Dark Remake release date will be rewarded with the Decerto 1992 Costume Pack DLC, which replaces the character models with low-polygon characters reminiscent of the original 1992 version. A Digital Deluxe edition will also be available, offering a Vintage Horror Filter Pack DLC and a Director’s Commentary mode.
Other recent video game announcements from the PlayStation Showcase include Spider-Man 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake.
