Cool... I just hope this is more like the first and second ones, and less like the latest one... Nightmare or whatever (I forget)... that one just wasn't very good.

Oh yeah, forgot about Alone in the Dark, it was announced for the Xbox 360 like a year ago. Looks nice, hopefully they'll have some footage of it at E3.

some news regarding the concept of the new AITD game
Taking inspiration from the presentation style and structure of a number of acclaimed and globally popular TV action dramas, Alone in the Dark is split into distinct episodes in a season-style format. Eden Games has departed from the typical ten-hour game based on film-style scripts and structures and focuses on TV-season format in order to deliver a constant sustained pace and high level of narrative intensity.

"Our new format for Alone in the Dark greatly enhances the pace and tension, keeping players permanently hooked into the engrossing story surrounding the mysteries of Central Park and beyond," said David Nadal, Game Director, Eden Games. "You barely have time to breathe before the next cliffhanger hits you ... "

With approximately 30-40 minutes of gameplay comprising each episode, the structure of Alone in the Dark is adapted for an audience familiar with the hard-hitting, bite-size delivery of contemporary TV dramas, offering easy accessibility whether the player has hours to devote or only wants a quick TV-style fix.

Each time the player launches a saved game, the episode will begin with a video summary of the previous episode to quickly re-immerse the player in the story, removing the need to remember where they were or what they were doing. Every episode will close with a nail-biting cliff-hanger ending to rattle players' nerves, and if the player is leaving the game, a video teaser of the next episode will play to leave them wanting more.

A trailer for the game is availible here, in 720p resolution: http://xboxyde.com/leech_2523_en.html

I must say that it looks pretty nice. They certainly like to show off the light beam effect in the trailer. Could be good, although I'd like to see what the gameplay is actually like. At least the real-time footage is impressive.

That looks very good. If it wasn't for the jaggies, it would look close to CG in some scenes.

Wow, IGN has the HD trailer and its looking great. Some Textures flicker but that can be fixed.

Just to add... The game is also going to be on the PS3, It was announced at TGS2K5.
