Alone in the Dark looking awesome!

Juicy new footage shows off the thrills and chills of Atari's horror game

Alone in the Dark is set to be one of the best survival horror games ever made, judging by this dramatic new trailer.

It gives you taster of the monstrous beings lurking in Central Park, New York, and the hell you're going to endure to stay alive.

Check out the environmental detail as the camera pans out to show the whole park, and in the deformed faces of the creatures you'll encounter. Atari promises "state-of-the-art real-time physics and unparalleled environmental interaction within a meticulously detailed, open game world," and it looks to be coming along as planned.

The proposed episodic format that Alone in the Dark will take on is another reason we're pumped about this game. Inspired by TV drama shows, the game will be split into a number of 30-40 minute episodes, each one ending on a cliff-hanger - literally by the looks of it.

Alone in the Dark is set to hit PS3, 360 and PC later this year, and we can't wait. Click the video thumbnail to see the awesome trailer.
