Alone in the Dark images

Atari today relaunched the Central Dark webpage for Alone In The Dark. The game is planned to be released in May on PS2, Wii, Xbox 360 and PC, while the PS3 version is being released "later this year", and we got some new images from the game.

There was a video here a while ago, actually the gameplay looks pretty great.

I am really looking forward to this. The video looked great. I hope the PS3 isnt getting special stuff, but from my understanding, most PS3 games have to be downgraded or changed from the 360 version.

Won't this be the first third-person horror game to release this generation? I'll give it a shot if only for that reason (love the genre)

EDIT: Wait, I forgot Dead Rising. Still, only two horror games for every 300 shooters :(

Dead Rising is as much a Survival horror, as Crackdown is a Plain Ol' Shooter.

0 horror games for all the crappy PS3 shooters, is it now?

Crappy graphics.

They have been seriously downgraded since the first time we saw it, very disappointing.

Still looks good in motion though.

Who said anything Crackdown? Or PS3? My point is that there are too many shooters this time around, and not enough of everything else.

Did you not read the post where Crackdown was mentioned? He was comparing calling Dead Rising a survival horror to calling Crackdown a shooter to show how ridiculous it is to place Dead Rising in that genre. He was essentially debating your choice to call Dead Rising a survival horror.

He also just said that there is a huge lack of horror games. Does it matter that he specified PS3, to which this game is also heading?

I really hope this game is scary.

As for graphics... The outside shot looks HAWT. I hope they don't have to downgrade it too much more to fit on PS3. And if they do, perhaps only that version.

Well, Starfox just stated the PS3 to make a fanboyish statement, which is why he is on my ignore list. Anyway, PS3 multiplatform games being delayed = crappy half-assed port in my book. We've seen it happen with Stranglehold, we've seen it happen with MoH Airborne (though to be honest, the game sucks in total), and we will see it in this game. Won't be picking this up for my PS3 it seems.

The demo looked awesome. This is Atari's last chance to turn a profit before they close the doors.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (36 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (7 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (7 Hours ago)
