‘Alan Wake 2’ Gets Release Date and Trailer

On Wednesday, as part of the PlayStation Showcase, Remedy gave fans a first look at the gameplay of the highly anticipated sequel to “Alan Wake.”

“Alan Wake 2” is a single-player psychological survival horror experience that centers around the original game protagonist, horror writer Alan Wake. However, the new trailer also introduces us to a co-leading protagonist and second playable character: Saga Anderson.

A string of ritualistic murders threatens Bright Falls, a small-town community surrounded by the Pacific Northwest wilderness. Anderson, an accomplished FBI agent with a reputation for solving impossible cases, arrives to investigate the murders. Soon the events spiral into a nightmare when she discovers pages of a horror story that start to come true around her. Somehow the events seem to lead to Alan Wake, the horror writer who went missing 13 years ago.

Alan Wake, a lost writer trapped in a nightmare beyond our world, writes a story in an attempt to shape the reality around him and escape his prison. With a dark horror hunting him in the Dark Place, Wake is trying to retain his sanity and beat the devil at his own game.

The game begins with Anderson coming to investigate the murders in Bright Falls with her veteran fellow agent Alex Casey. After certain events have transpired, fans can play Wake and Anderson’s respective stories in any order they choose. Their journeys echo and foreshadow each other in this intense atmospheric story, taking players on two separate dark and disturbing paths.

“Alan Wake 2” will be available digitally for PC on the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on October 17th.
