Alan Wake II release date set for October 17, features haunting gameplay trailer

Alan Wake II just had a release date, tip confirmation from earlier this week suggested a fall/fall window. during that time PlayStation Showcase event, held early Thursday, developer Remedy Entertainment confirmed that the sequel to the supernatural horror game will launch on October 17, on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X . New protagonist FBI Agent Saga Anderson shares the stage with our popular hero in this sequel, which also shifts its genre to survival horror. The studio also dropped a similar gameplay trailer, which looks quite similar to the recent game Evil inhabitant do it again — that’s a positive thing.

The Alan Wake 2 The trailer opens with the voice of Wake, who appears to be trapped inside the echoing abyss that is the Dark Place. “I’m trapped here… in this nightmare,” he says, as we catch a glimpse of a certain bald guy being tied up and eaten by masked followers in a Forest. “I write to free myself. Every word is a step into the dark.” The text seems rather monologue and disjointed, which has to do with the structure of the game. With the inclusion of a new protagonist, players can play Wake or Anderson’s respective stories in any order they wish. Their journeys are intertwined, but each leads separate unsettling paths to uncover the mystery surrounding a series of ritual murders that threaten Bright Falls – yes, it’s the same location. with the original wake up alan.

above Official websiteCreative director sam lake stated that playing FBI agent Anderson was the “perfect perspective” for newcomers to the franchise, inviting players into the supernatural world of Alan Wake. “What is important to us is Alan Wake 2 acts as a standalone experience but also has plenty of connections for our fans to find,” he wrote. The sequel begins with Anderson exploring the pages of a horror story, apparently written by Wake himself, although the events described in it appear to have taken place precisely in this world. It is described that the victim was one of Anderson’s colleagues, FBI Agent Robert Nightingale, who appeared to be chasing a writer (presumably Wake), before he was murdered. Accompanying the case is agent Casey, played by the game’s writer Sam Lake himself.

“We are all stuck in a horror story,” Wake continued to write. “The horror story wants us dead.” We then moved on to some rough gameplay footage of Anderson approaching a dilapidated general store with a gun in hand, based on an over-the-shoulder perspective similar to Evil 4. As she continues to investigate in the house, a masked cultist wields an ax through the wall and attacks her. Combat seems to mostly revolve around gunfights without melee, which raises questions about ammo savings. in a related PlayStation blog post, it was revealed that Anderson’s story would take place in three centers: the town of Bright Falls, the jungle surrounding Lake Cauldron, and the ruined town of Watery. The last one seems to be embellished with cool neon light. Meanwhile, Wake’s story takes place in Dark Place, which has been described as a ‘repeating, changing reality’.

Game FAQ page confirmed that Alan Wake 2 won’t have a physical CD release, with Remedy citing ‘a large number’ of people who have switched to a digital-only format. “Secondly, the non-disc release helps keep the game price at $59.99 / €59.99 and the PC version at $49.99 / €49.99. Ultimately, we don’t want to ship a disc product and it requires a download of the game — we don’t think this will make for a great experience either,” the site reads.

Alan Wake II released October 17 on computer, PS5And Xbox Series S/X. Pre-orders are now live on all platforms.
