“Alan Wake II” is finally on its way, bringing an end to the long wait for the highly anticipated sequel. Remedy’s creative director, Sam Lake, took the stage at Summer Game Fest Live to provide more information and showcase some exciting new gameplay.
In this survival horror game, players will be introduced to a new character named Saga Anderson, an FBI agent who joins forces with Alan Wake. Lake disclosed that the game will feature an equal split between the stories of both characters. Players will initially embark on the journey as Saga, but they will have the option to switch between her and Alan at specific points throughout the game.
Saga and her partner venture to a quaint town in the Pacific Northwest to investigate a series of ritualistic murders, as Lake revealed. However, their mission takes a nightmarish turn, blurring the lines between reality and the eerie tales woven by a particular writer.
During the gameplay presentation, Lake showcased an early sequence where Saga confronts supernatural forces that have resurrected a murder victim as a menacing creature. The footage starts with Saga cautiously traversing through a wooded area and an abandoned building, relying on her trusty flashlight. Eventually, she encounters the terrifying beast. The showcased footage, accompanied by a brief trailer, evokes the perfect atmosphere of spine-chilling suspense. Remedy didn’t hold back on including a couple of jump scares for added intensity.
