Alone in the Dark: Illumination is an upcoming sixth installment of the survival horror video game series by Atari. The game is being developed by Pure FPS for the PC and is the series’ first installment to be played online and in a cooperative setting. Inspired by the “Father of the Survival Horror Genre” classic from Atari and H.P. Lovecraft, Alone in the Dark: Illumination reinvents the series’ game style into a terrifying, new survival-action horror experience.
Alone in the Dark: Illuminatio brings you to the abandoned town of Lorwich, Virginia. Located near Virginia’s southern border, Lorwich was a flourishing industrial town with a bustling business generated by the local mines. These prosperous days came to an end when a flood devastated the mining facility, leaving behind nothing but destruction in its wake. The disaster forced an immediate evacuation, leaving the town desolate. It has been years since the accident, and the town has long been forgotten.
But the cause of the accident is still a mystery, and years later, nobody dares step foot in the town for fear of what lies there. There have been numerous reports of strange creatures and a dark, brooding fog within the town. Some locals who believe in the supernatural say that there lurks an ever-present force known as The Darkness. The Darkness can reveal itself in many ways, such as fog, apparitions, and creatures. It has cast its spell over Lorwich, enveloping everything in its path. It is up to you to help defend the town by fighting back the Forces of Darkness.
