News: The pioneering horror series comes to the Xbox 360
Back at the Tokyo Game Show, Sony announced that Alone in the Dark was in development for the PlayStation 3. Now at X05, Atari has revealed they are also working on a version for the Xbox 360.
Alone in the Dark 5 will use the Xbox 360 to create a "highly detailed environment" where players will be able to have "full environmental interaction" with "real-time physics". Maybe a few of those didn't need quotes.
"We are extremely excited about bringing Alone in the Dark to Xbox 360. Alone in the Dark is a massive global franchise that has been at the forefront of the survival genre since its inception," said Cyril Voiron, Marketing Director, Atari Europe. "With the incredibly talented Eden Games at the helm, we are supremely confident that they will deliver a visceral and gripping experience that will establish the Alone in the Dark franchise as the leader of the next-generation survival genre and once again, remain ahead of the pack."
"Alone in the Dark will look and play amazing on Xbox 360," said Peter Moore, Vice President, Worldwide Marketing and Publishing, Xbox. "The level of environmental interaction and graphical detail achievable on the system is staggering and will allow Eden to produce a game wholly worthy of the 'next-generation' tag, and provide an intense and voracious gaming experience."
The new Alone in the Dark is being developed by Eden Studios for an unknown release date.
