THQ Has officially dated the new Alone in the Dark game. It will release on 25 October for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. But you don’t need to wait until October to play the game. A special prologue episode is now available to download for free on all platforms.
The prologue will see players explore the early moments of the story leading up to the events of the main game.

THQ has also detailed what players can look forward to in Alone in the Dark. The game stars Stranger Things actor David Harbour and Jodie Comer from Free Guy and Killing Eve. David plays series protagonist Edward Carnby and Jodie plays Emily Hartwood who has hired Edward to investigate the disappearance of her uncle.
The free prologue is called Grace in the Dark and takes place a couple of weeks before the game’s main story. Players take the role of Grace Saunders as they wander around the spooky mansion trying to post an important letter. That letter turns out to be the same one sent to Emily who then hires Edward for the job.
The final game in October will feature combat, intense horror and monsters. However, you won’t find much of that in the prologue. The small demo is only there to set the stage for things to come.
THQ shared a deep dive into Alone in the Dark which touches on the game’s story, the actors and what players will be doing. Alone in the Dark is also now available to pre-order ahead of its 25 October release date.
Pre-order customers will get access to the Decerto 1992 Costume Pack DLC which replaces the in-game character models with the original 1992 versions. There’s also a Deluxe Edition which comes with a Vintage Horror Filter Pack DLC and a Director’s Commentary mode.
