Remedy Entertainment’s long-awaited sequel, Alan Wake II, gets an October 17, 2023 release date on the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, as announced during the PlayStation Showcase.
Alongside the announcement, a gameplay trailer was also revealed, showing its trademark mechanic of using light to vanquish foes and introducing Saga Anderson, an accomplished FBI agent who arrives to investigate murders in the small town community of Bright Falls.
“Alan Wake II is an intense story and a layered mystery that takes players on two disturbing journeys, running in parallel and echoing each other in strange and unexpected ways,” said Sam Lake, Creative Director and Lead Writer. “A newcomer to Alan Wake’s world, FBI Agent Saga Anderson’s investigation offers players a unique lens into this survival horror experience.”
The sequel will offer new ways to experience the story with two playable characters – Saga Anderson risks her life to solve a deadly mystery of murders in the Pacific Northwest while Alan Wake attempts to rewrite his reality to escape the depths of the Dark Place, a nightmare version of New York City.
Alan Wake II is now available to pre-order digitally, and is scheduled to release on October 17, 2023, for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
