We had a chance to see Alone in the Dark: Illumination in action this year at PAX. The title is a departure from previous entries, taking cues from Turtle Rock Studios’ Left 4 Dead, with additional procedurally generated elements.

The title features four-player cooperative action, in which light plays a vital role in surviving the enemy onslaught. You and your team will progress through a multi-stage encounter with a final fight against an elder god. And, because you can’t really kill a god, you’ll need to trap it or escape.

The title plays out in third person, with a tight camera similar to recent Resident Evil titles and The Evil Within. Another significant difference from Left 4 Dead is that the four classes (hunter, witch, priest, and engineer) all have their own abilities and weapons and are connected to characters from the original Alone in the Dark titles.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination is arriving on Steam and other digital storefronts later this year, and we’ve got an exclusive look at the first gameplay trailer (above) featuring the hunter and the witch. For more, check out our preview from PAX.
