The PLAYSTATION®3 computer

creation Alone in the Dark: Inferno has shipped to retailers across North
America. Following feedback from media and gamers, Atari and Eden Games have
given the title a blazing rework for its PLAYSTATION 3 system debut, delivering
an even more entertaining, immersive and action-packed blockbuster experience.

Complementing the launch of the
title, world famous Grammy award-nominated electronic music producer and DJ,
Tisto, has created a remix based on the powerful original game score composed
by Olivier Deriviere. Available from Tuesday November 18th, the stunning remix
is available at retailers worldwide as CD single, digital download and limited

Alone in the Dark: Inferno features
modified gameplay elements including camera, inventory system, and hero control
which have all been reworked for maximum immersion and fun. In addition, Alone
in the Dark: Inferno includes an all-new action-packed stage revealing a
previously unseen boss enemy of epic proportions.

Modifications include:

Full 360 camera control: enhanced
camera controls allows complete freedom of the camera and better handling of
third person movement for even more immersive gameplay enabling players to view
the fire and mass destruction they are causing in all of its glory.

  • Fine-tuned controls: quicker and
    smoother reactivity of the hero’s movements in third person view increases the
    pace of the game and makes for faster, reflexive gameplay during tense
    fighting scenarios;

  • Inventory system more accessible:
    more logical jacket inventory system with the ability to scroll rapidly
    through the inventory with the D-pad or analogue stick to combine objects. In
    addition, gameplay is paused when accessing the inventory system to allow
    maximum creativity in combining items to create unique flammable weapons;

  • More tips: additional on-screen
    tips will help players quickly adapt to controls and easily understand how to
    overcome tricky situations;

  • Spectral Vision tuning: a tutorial
    earlier in the storyline explains the need to burn roots in order to gain
    spectral vision (a power that grants you the ability to see the unseen) and
    difficulty tuning means less spectral vision is required to reach the end of
    the game;

  • Improved car dynamics and
    handling: driving has been tuned with increased suspension and reduced
    drifting giving overall better handling to make driving a fun walk in the park
    every time;

  • 59th Street level tuning: one of
    the game’s most exciting sequences just got better. 59th Street has been
    tweaked for a more satisfying race against the fissure with difficulty tuning,
    an added checkpoint at Columbus Circle and clear voice directions given by
    Sarah;

  • Brand new thrilling action
    sequence: an exclusive new sequence has been added in Episode 6 for even more
    excitement and variety of gameplay in the episode.

Alone in the Dark: Inferno stays
true to the storyline of the previous versions in which gamers take on the role
of paranormal investigator Edward Carnby and over the course of one apocalyptic
night must fight to survive and uncover the earth-shattering secret behind New
York’s Central Park. However, the new edition fully complements the intense
storytelling and unprecedented environmental interactions with an array of
improved gameplay elements that will give gamers the ultimate Alone in the Dark
experience.
