Alone in the Dark (2024) Xbox & PS5 Controls Guide

Alone in the Dark’s making a comeback and giving the classic ’92 game a solid makeover… it’s legit for sure. The best part? Getting deep into all that exploring & detective work. Plus you get to see the story from two whole different sides, which is just awesome.


Heard some folks moaning about the shootin’ mechanics but for real, it ain’t nothing to sweat over. The baddies? Not too hard and we ain’t exactly drowning in new weapons or anything.
