The long-awaited sequel to Remedy’s 2010 horror game Alan Wake is finally hitting store shelves just in time for the Halloween season, as Alan Wake 2 is arriving October 17.  

Announced in 2021 and with a new gameplay trailer revealed during PlayStation Showcase on May 24th, 2023, Alan Wake 2 takes us back to the idyllic town of Bright Falls, this time we’re in the shoes of Saga Anderson, an FBI agent who is in Bright Falls investigating a string of ritualistic murders 13 years after Alan Wake disappeared. Alan Wake is trapped in an alternate dimension, writing a horror story about Anderson and Alex Casey, (voiced by James McCaffrey of Max Payne fame) as her partner as they investigate the murders.
