Since last year's E3, Eden has remained unforthcoming about this gloomy remake of the 1992 classic – a game which gave birth to many of the identifiable features of the survival-horror genre.
Alone in the Dark has relocated to Central Park, New York, and that it will be episodic in its structure – broken up into one-hour segments of action, much like a TV show. Beyond this, little is known, however.
In the spirit of the original game, your character will find few weapons to hand – relying on a mixture of makeshift tools and his environment to defeat or avoid his enemies. The technology bolstering this is the ability to combine many items that you come across – the inventory system displaying from a firstperson perspective, looking down over the character's chest as he opens his jacket, revealing the many pockets inside. Wrap a glowstick in tape and you can fling it on to a wall to light the area ahead of you. Fill a bottle with bullets and gasoline and you have a bomb, which you can then ignite from a safe distance by leaving a trail of fuel.
