– Eden Games' Next-Generation Action Survival Title Set for Xbox 360 and Now PC –
NEW YORK, April 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR) today announced that Alone in the Dark will launch for the Windows(R) platform simultaneously with the version for Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The original Alone in the Dark is the video game that launched survival gaming and set the standard within the genre. Developed by Eden Games, Alone in the Dark returns with a heart-stopping survival experience coupled with use of state-of-the-art real-time physics and advanced environmental interaction to deliver an exhilarating action-orientated experience within a highly detailed, open environment.
In 1992, the first Alone in the Dark title for PC ushered in a new dawn of gaming, revolutionizing the use of fear as a tool to manipulate and engage the emotions of the player, and bringing sheer terror to gamers around the world. Fourteen years later, the franchise returns to the PC and to the newest generation of video game hardware, Xbox 360, taking full advantage of the incredible technological advances of both platforms and designed to satisfy the sophisticated demands of a gaming audience wiser, bolder and more accustomed to fear than ever before.
"Alone in the Dark is returning to the format that launched survival gaming — the PC — and after nearly a decade and a half of ever-accelerating technological progress, we anticipate that the title will again take the lead on next-generation consoles with the Xbox 360 and PC," said Steve Tucker, Director of Marketing, Atari, Inc. "This is one for gamers to keep an eye on in the coming months as Atari and Eden begin to reveal details that will demonstrate how we will fulfill these promises."
Boasting an original gameplay structure designed to appeal to a mass audience, Alone in the Dark aims to go beyond expectations for a next-generation title and re-establish itself as the genre-leader on the Windows platform and Xbox 360.
