Alone in the Dark reboot storyline

The Alone in the Dark reboot will take place in the same location as the first three games, Derceto Mansion. And while it is being labeled as a reboot, the game will not directly adapt the first three games but instead, draw heavily from them.

It will include the original protagonists Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood and is set to take place in the deep south of America in the 1920s. At the beginning of the game, players will choose one of the characters to play as while the other will still feature in the game.

Players will encounter lots of monsters during their playthrough.

It has been reported that the two will cross paths during the game but both will offer up unique playthroughs and campaigns with separate cutscenes. As a result, the game will likely have great replay value. It will include monsters, puzzles, and a big truth that will need to be uncovered throughout the campaign. 

It will be a deep horror-survival experience where players will have limited supplies and will be required to backtrack during sections of the game.
