Alan Wake 2 – Game Presentation Trailer

After saving his wife, Alan was trapped, but not killed. He has endured the hell of the Dark Place for 13 years. Here, his nightmares, fears and stories about him manifest as a reality around him. For 13 years, he has been fighting to stay sane and write a story that would change the reality around him in order to escape. So far, he has failed.

In the game, there are two worlds and two parallel stories to follow, and two playable heroes: Alan Wake and FBI agent Saga Anderson, a profiler with a reputation for solving impossible cases.

The two are connected in multiple unexpected ways and critical parts of the story. Saga is a newcomer when it comes to supernatural lore in the world of Wake, and a point-of-view character to bring new players into the Alan Wake universe.

There are three distinct locations to explore in the Pacific Northwest region of the game, where the city of Bright Falls is located. It is also the home of the annual Deerfest. Nearby is the ruined city of Watery, Cauldron Lake and the area if suitable for exploration. The story promises to be full of surprises buried inside,

Alan Wake 2 will be available for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The game will be supported post-launch with both free content and two paid expansions: Night Springs and Lake House.
