New Update! Welcome to Moonlight Trailer Park!

“Thro’ the ghoul-guarded gateways of slumber,
Past the wan-moon’d abysses of night,
I have liv’d o’er my lives without number,
I have sounded all things with my sight;
And I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak, being driven to madness with fright.”


Oops! What we meant to say was…
“Welcome to Moonlight Trailer Park, your Outdoor Escape Destination!”

Greetings Illuminators! This massive Halloween update for Alone in the Dark: Illumination brings a completely brand new, horrific location and a pulse-pounding new way to play. Paired with a ton of animation and visual refinements, AITD has never been more terrifying! Read on for additional details and our full build notes.

New Environment: Moonlight Trailer Park

Navigate the dilapidated Moonlight Trailer Park as you dodge the Old One’s ever-pursuing minions. This unique, huge map offers an open-ended play experience, with multiple routes and tactics to escape the treacherous hordes of eldritch creatures. Scrawled notes and clues are hidden throughout the Park, illuminating the eerie backstory of the park. Can you survive the darkness? Or will the Moonlight claim another victim?

New Game Mode: Escape

A new play mode exclusive to the Moonlight Trailer Park map, Escape tasks the players with surviving the Trailer Park in one of three unique ways. As the adventurers search the map for clues and ways forward, enemy spawns will become more difficult and the darkness will close in. A brand-new energy consumption mechanic means that players will constantly be balancing risk and reward as they press on. Light means safety, but the longer you wait, the more monsters will pour out of the abyss. A random allocation of vital items gives the mode endless replay value, as players will never know where to find the elusive tools they need to free themselves from the darkness. Escape, before it’s too late!

Happy Halloween!

About This Game

A darkness has fallen over the town of Lorwich. Monstrous hordes emerge from beyond the realm of nightmares to sow chaos on the land. As one of four heroes, you must battle the minions of the old ones with the force of arms, and the power of illumination.

Inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, Atari’s Alone in the Dark series is recognized as the “Father of the Survival Horror Genre”. Alone in the Dark: Illumination explores this dark legacy in a terrifying action-horror experience.

Battle through dynamic environments filled with bloodthirsty beasts. Build your party as you rescue your companions including the Witch, Engineer and Priest, each with a unique set of special abilities and weapons.

Danger lurks in every shadow. While your friends may help, at the end of the night you are always Alone in the Dark.

  • Four Unique Heroes: The Hunter, the Witch, the Priest and the Engineer each offer unique gameplay experiences with distinctive weapons, skills and powers to unlock.
  • Play as a Team or Alone in the Dark: Play with all four characters in co-operative multiplayer mode, build smaller teams for greater challenge, or face the darkness alone.
  • Diverse Environments: Four campaigns with multiple levels take players through the blasted landscape of Lorwich, and deep below to unearth the mysteries of this forsaken township.
  • Eldritch Horror: Inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, beings from beyond madness, including Roof Walkers, Shapes and Spawns will haunt your nightmares.
  • Dynamic Environments: Interact with dynamic environmental puzzles to change the structure of the map and advance your quest.
