Latest look at Alan Wake 2 demonstrates the overwhelming atmosphere of the upcoming Remedy title. As expected by the developer, it combines incredibly beautiful artwork with intense cover photography with the classic flashlight mechanic that the series is famous for.
If you are a fan of some of the best horror movies out there Alan Wake 2 should be at the top of your list. The game will be released on October 17, 2023. The raw, unedited footage shows the part of the game where we play as the second playable character (the game is split between Alan himself and this other playable character “about 50/50 according to Sam Lake) and shows an encounter with a monster in a spooky cabin in the woods – where things rarely go well, if the Evil Dead has taught us anything.
Alan Wake 2 has got to be one of the most exciting upcoming games to date – and it continues the story laid out by the excellent first game.
In the first game Alan Wake, we played a writer who experiences a severe mental block and travels to a small town in Washington state. Here, he witnesses how “darkness” takes over people and animals, and even inanimate objects. The tension and battle between light and dark played a key role in the game, and every episode of the game felt like a great TV thriller.
While the original Alan Wake recently received a remaster to bring it up to the “standard” of modern games, this sequel and its material looks like it came straight out of Control Coursebook. Combine third person perspective, low over the shoulder, and supernatural horror and mystery, and you’ll find plenty of classic Remedy and Control themes here.
Still, there is so much going on during the summer match season E3 2023 not running this year. We give you everything you need to know this year.
