THQ Nordic Acquires “Alone in the Dark” and “Act of War” IPs

THQ Nordic has announced they’ve acquired even more intellectual properties for their already massive portfolio.

The company has acquired the “Alone in the Dark” and “Act of War” intellectual properties from Atari Europe, who are based in France.

Here’s a rundown on both properties:

  • Alone in the Dark
    Alone in the Dark is a survival horror video game series. Early instalments 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.
  • 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.
