In a seemingly never ending string of acquisition news comes word that THQ Nordic is adding a couple more franchises to its stable. Recently the publisher acquired both Timesplitters and Kingdoms of Alamur. Today comes word that it has acquired the rights to classic survival horror series Alone in the Dark, and the PC RTS Act of War.
Alone in the Dark first came to PC in 1992 where it introduced 3D characters in a slow paced horror title. Proving popular is spawned a few sequels, a reboot during the Xbox 360 era, and even a terrible movie adaptation. It'll be interesting to see what comes from this - we're assuming reboot mostly in name only.
About Alone in the Dark
Alone in the Dark is a survival horror video game series. Early installments of the series were based on the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, whereas later entries in the series drew inspiration from other sources including voodoo, the Wild West, and the works of H. R. Giger.
About Act of War
Act of War is a real-time strategy game developed by Eugen Systems that featured a fine-grained story, fabricated by NYT bestselling author Dale Brown.
As for Act of War, it arrived as a competent and enjoyable cinematic RTS back in 2005 sporting cutting edge presentation - for the time.
And now we wait until the next THQ Nordic acquisition.
