A rumour has been floating about for a while, that THQ Nordic will be revealing the Alone in the Dark reboot. That rumour is set to be confirmed at THQ Nordic's Digital showcase today at 20:47 on Youtube.
Information about the reboot as well as the box art was accidentally posted too early on a Belgian retailer's website (it has since been taken down) and it was also uploaded to Resetera where you can still find all the information and screenshots.
The official summary of the title is below:
“Psychological horror and Southern Gothic meet in this revisit of the survival-horror classic Alone in the Dark.
