Atari Unleashes New ‘Alone In the Dark’ & ‘Haunted House’ This Fall

It’s a big year for Atari, as they are re-imagining two popular titles for the PC starting this fall with Alone in the Dark: Illumination and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves. Atari has released preview trailers for both titles, and below is a sneak peek at Alone in the Dark: Illumination:

“Atari was at the forefront of the survival horror game genre, with both Haunted House and Alone in the Dark shaping the category throughout the ’80s and ’90,” said Atari CEO Fred Chesnais. “The modern and updated versions of these games will resonate with enthusiasts of the classics worldwide, and engage new fans through suspenseful, action-packed PC gameplay.”

The original Haunted House was released back in 1982, and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves will have players communicate with the dead to solve puzzles and avoid traps. The goal is to purge the evil beings that lurk the Abbadon Grange Estate.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination features cooperative multiplayer mode, as players attempt to rid a town that’s filled with “blood-thirsty beasts” and cleanse the environment of the darkness that has cursed the land. Playable characters in the game include the Hunter, Witch, Engineer, and Priest.

Below are Screenshots for both Alone in the Dark: Illumination and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves:
