Alan Wake II, the long awaited sequel to the popular horror game releases today, October 27. With the reviews also out, we get more information about the game without spoilers. The current scores on Metacritic are 88 on Playstation 5 and 92 on PC.
Connection with the first game
Alan Wake II, continues after the events of the first game. A small description of what happened to the first Alan Wake, “When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.”
A few words about the upcoming sequel
The description for Alan Wake II on the Epic Games Store writes “A string of ritualistic murders threatens Bright Falls, a small-town community surrounded by Pacific Northwest wilderness. Saga Anderson, an FBI agent with a reputation for solving impossible cases arrives to investigate the murders. Anderson’s case spirals into a nightmare when she discovers pages of a horror story that starts to come true around her.
Alan Wake, a lost writer trapped in a nightmare beyond our world, writes a dark story in an attempt to shape the reality around him and escape his prison. With a dark horror hunting him, Wake is trying to retain his sanity and beat the devil at his own game.
Anderson and Wake are two heroes on two desperate journeys, connected in ways neither of them can understand.
Supernatural darkness invades Bright Falls, corrupting the locals and threatening the loved ones of both Anderson and Wake. Light is their weapon—and their safe haven — against the darkness they face. Trapped in a sinister horror story where there are only victims and monsters, can they break out to be the heroes they need to be?”
This time we control two characters, aside from Alan Wake himself, we also have FBI agent Saga Aderson.
The gameplay is very different from the first game, with a darker atmosphere and a closer and more immersive camera angle. Alan Wake II releases on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC through the Epic Games Store.
