Alan Wake 2 Gets New Gameplay Footage at Summer Game Fest

Must read

At this year's Summer Game Fest, Remedy Entertainment shared new gameplay footage of Alan Wake 2.

Remedy Entertainment Creative Director Sam Lake appeared on stage to talk a bit more about the game before showing off a gameplay demo focusing on Saga Anderson. At last month's PlayStation Showcase, we learned that Saga Anderson is a new addition who will also be one of two playable characters in the sequel. Anderson is an FBI agent who has been sent to Bright Falls to investigate some "ritual murders," according to Lake.

Alan Wake 2 will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on October 17, 2023, though if you are looking to buy a physical copy, you might be out of luck. Shortly after the release date was revealed, Remedy Entertainment announced that Alan Wake 2 would be a digital-only release across all platforms in order to maintain costs and keep the game at $60 on consoles or $50 if you buy it on PC.

THQ Nordic, who published the first Alan Wake game on PC and released a physical copy of the game, expressed interest in publishing physical copies of Alan Wake 2, but we have yet to receive a confirmation on whether or not this will happen.

For everything else announced at today's Summer Game Fest – including the reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Marvel's Spider-Man 2's PS5 release date, and new Mortal Kombat 1 Kameo gameplay – check out our roundup.
