It's been seven years since the last time we were able to be Alone In The Dark, in game terms. Now we have Alone In The Dark: Illumination coming and a brand new teaser for the new and sixth installment to the franchise. This time around using the Unreal 4 engine and including co-op play. In fact the whole game looks to be slated as a four player co-op experience that will have specific story paths for each character class. Yes, that sounds quite odd given how the franchise has been experienced in the past.
The character classes for Alone In The Dark: Illumination are:
We have all that and the following teaser trailer to go on for Alone In The Dark: Illumination currently and not much more. Details are slowly seeping out via the game's website but that is about all that is known short of a planned beta for Alone In The Dark: Illumination slated later this year. For now we can see how gorgeous it is looking and how terrifying the game could be once it hits PCs for us all.
I do find it a bit odd that Alone In The Dark: Illumination is only coming to PC given the engine's capabilities to cross platform develop but I have a feeling the choice is more on the multiplayer aspect and server need over graphical power. I'm sure that if Alone In The Dark: Illumination does well Atari and Pure FPS would have zero issues or difficulty to port it over to the next gen platforms but as of now that is not the case. Pity…
