Atari has released the first trailer for Alone in the Dark: Illumination, the latest installment in the classic horror game series.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination is a four-player, cooperative third-person action-horror game, where "the power of illumination" plays an important role. Players can choose between four playable heroes, each armed with an individual set of special abilities and weapons. The Hunter comes with powerful firearms, the Witch has supernatural powers (like the lighting strike you can see her use in the trailer), the Priest has "divine abilities" like Holy Light, and the Engineer has mechanical items like the Tesla Wall.

Alone in the Dark is being developed by a new studio called Pure FPS, whose members worked on games like Dead Island 2, Bioshock Infinite, and Battlefield 2.

The game will release during holiday 2014, though Atari doesn't have an exact release date yet. Its "Eldritch Edition," which includes a limited edition character and weapon skin and early access to the beta, is now also available to preorder from Steam for $30.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
