Remedy Entertainment has just announced the highly anticipated release date for the sequel of their horror classic video game, Alan Wake 2. The game will be launched on the 17th of October this year and will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in digital format only, with no physical release planned.
The game will feature a new playable protagonist, FBI agent Saga Anderson, alongside Alan Wake who disappeared 13 years ago. The narrative of the game follows a string of ritualistic murders that had occurred in the small town of Bright Falls in the Pacific Northwest wilderness. Anderson arrives at Bright Falls to investigate these murders but soon realizes that the events in the town are taking shape from the pages of a horror story that has become reality. Eventually, the events lead to Alan Wake, and Anderson and Wake take separate paths to uncover the mystery and horror that has engulfed their lives.
Remedy Entertainment has stated that players will be able to tackle each playable character’s path in any order they choose. Fans will be thrilled with the Night Springs and Lake House expansions along with various skins, including the Nordic Shotgun skin, Crimson Windbreaker, Lantern Charm for Saga, The Parliament Shotgun skin, and Celebrity Suit for Alan Wake.
The game will be available in two versions upon release; a standard edition priced at £39.99/€49.99/ $49.99 USD on PC and £49.99/€59.99/$59.99 on consoles, while the deluxe edition will cost £54.99/€69.99/$69.99 on PC and £64.99/€79.99/$79.99 on consoles.
The game’s announcement sends excitement among the gaming community, and the Halloween release date is a perfect fit for the horror genre in which it specializes. Fans across different platforms have eagerly waited for more than ten years for this game, and bringing in Saga Anderson as a playable character is an exciting new addition to the gameplay.
Alan Wake 2 will be available on multiple digital platforms including Epic Games Store for PC and PlayStation, and Xbox stores for the respective consoles. The digital-only release is justified by the market trend shifting towards digital content, and it will keep the price of the game a reasonable $59.99/€59.99 for the standard edition on consoles and $49.99/€49.99 on PC.
