As we all know, the 2008 edition of Alone in the Dark failed pretty damn hard. And with that fact fresh in our minds.
The AITD fans are pretty darn nervous about Alone in the Dark Illumination. Mostly because they think it´s nothing more than a Gears of War game with some horror elements to it.
Then again, the fans base all of that one one single trailer (the one that you will find further down the page). Imo, it´s to early to bring out the chainsaw and just tear Illumination apart.
In short, i think that Illumination at least deserves a fair chance (just like any other game). And IF we are asked to review the game, we will do so. In fact, i will personally take care of it.
Because i´ve been down with the Alone in the Dark series since the very first game. Oh well, this fall we will know for sure. And by the way, you can pre-order Alone in the Dark: Illumination for 27,99 Euro via Steam at the moment.
Alone in the Dark: Illumination will be available on Steam for $29.99. As the latest installment of the long-running Alone in the Dark® franchise, Alone in the Dark: Illumination is a third-person action-horror game that brings interesting new twists and gameplay including the power of illumination, 4-player cooperative multiplayer mode, and a unique cast of characters featuring descendants of the original Alone in the Dark heroes. Players can choose between the four playable heroes, each armed with an individual set of special abilities and weapons.
Alone in the Dark: Illumination is being developed by PURE FPS and fans can keep up with the latest on the game on Twitter at @AITDGame or Facebook at facebook.com/aloneinthedarkgame.
