Alone in the Dark gets spooky in lengthy new trailer

This October is shaping up to be a busy month for horror fans. Two days ago we learned that Alan Wake 2 will be arriving on October 17th, and then today THQ Nordic revealed that their reimagining of Alone in the Dark will hit stores just over a week later on October 25th.

That’s not all that announced, though. They also showed on a 10-minute video that shows a little of what the game has to offer. Among the highlights, we’ve learned that Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy) and David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow) will be the lead voice actors, and that the story you experience will depend on which character you play as.

In the upcoming Alone in the Dark, players can choose between two protagonists to experience the haunting story: Emily Hartwood and Edward Carnby. To bring these two iconic characters to life, the developers partnered up with famous actors Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy) and David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow), who will lend their voices, their appearance, and their formidable acting skills to the protagonists. Depending on who you play, you will get a different take on the same story. You can see both of them in action in the new spotlight video, showcasing a ton of gameplay.
