Remedy Entertainment debuted the first Alan Wake II gameplay footage at Summer Game Fest 2023, revealing major details about the Survival Horror sequel. In the new trailer, we got our first look at the game’s protagonist Saga Anderson battling supernatural entities at Cauldron Lake.
Remedy Director Sam Lake was also on hand at the event and confirmed that Alan Wake II will feature two playable characters. The perspectives between the two splits the story down the middle. Players can jump between both protagonists at key moments during the plot and choose who they want to play as.
The sequel centers around FBI agent Saga Anderson, who is investigating several mysterious murders in Bright Falls. The game’s campaign will lead players to the missing author Alan Wake, who is trying to escape from the nightmare world that he has become trapped in.
Alan Wake II launches on October 17, 2023.
