Alone in the Dark: When is the Review Embargo?

Alone in the Dark has seen multiple delays since it was first announced, which might make players curious about when the review embargo will lift.

Alone in the Dark is a reimagining of the 90’s cult classic horror game of the same name. Fortunately, you don’t have to play originals to experience the gothic, noir setting of Derceto Manor. Players can play as either Emily Hartwood or Edward Carnby and embark on a quest for answers. However, with many delays, players might be hesitant to purchase the game without waiting for reviews. Fortunately, it’s not long before the review embargo drops.

When Does the Alone in the Dark Review Embargo Lift?

The Alone in the Dark review embargo will drop on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at 7 am PDT / 10 am EDT / 2 pm GMT / 11 pm JST / 1 am AEDT (March 20). This is 24 hours before the game’s full release on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, which doesn’t give players a lot of time to decide if they want to pre-order the game.

It’s important to note that the embargo for non-sponsored content creators drops 3 hours before the official release. So, if people want to check out content from their favorite creators, they will have to wait until then.
