Alone in the Dark: Illumination Celebrates New Content With 66.6% Off Sale
Remember Alone in the Dark? No, not the abysmal Uwe Boll film, the video game series that pioneered 3D survival horror in 1992. Well the latest entry in the series, Alone in the Dark: Illumination, has recently been updated for free with new content, and improved visuals. You can grab the game right now on Steam for $6.79.
You are forgiven for not remembering AITD:I, as it came out back in June of 2015, and currently sits with a paltry 19 on Metacritic. Illumination takes the namesake of Alone in the Dark, and ditches it, at least the “alone” part. The sixth entry in the series is a 4-player cooperative experience boasting classes, magical abilities, and randomly generated enemies. Lucky for fans of the title, the developers at Pure FPS haven’t forgotten about Illumination, as they have just recently added a helping amount of new content, including a new game mode, environment, and various gameplay improvements.
The new environment, Moonlight Trailer Park, features, well, a moonlit trailer park. The park tasks players to survive with multiple routes, clues, and hordes of Eldritch creatures. The new environment goes hand in hand with the new game mode, Escape. Escape features enemies with ever-increasing difficulty, a new energy consumption mechanic, and randomized weapon drops.
Here is the full list of updated content in Alone in the Dark: Illumination.
• New Game Mode: Escape
