Remedy: Alan Wake 2 Doesn’t Have to Be The First Game You Play
Remedy shared more information about Alan Wake 2 after it was announced at The Game Awards.
Remedy Entertainment’s Creative Director, Sam Lake, revealed to the PlayStation blog that Alan Wake 2 was a small project completed in smaller increments between significant projects. Lake reiterated that Alan Wake 2 will feature more survival horror than the action in the first game and that Remedy Entertainment “are diving deeper than any time, into an ocean full of darkness.”
Lake said that Alan Wake 2 doesn’t require players to have played the original game.
Players who haven’t played American Nightmare or the original game won’t identify Mr. Scratch and other returning characters. Those who haven’t played Control will not dig into the “Remedy Connected Universe” that Alan Wake 2 will expand. It seems that Alan Wake 2’s primary objective will be to make people laugh and look beautiful while doing so. Returning players will be able to appreciate it even more. If you have never seen the original series, it won’t feel like watching Twin Peaks: The Return.
You still have time to play through Control and Alan Wake until 2023, as well as plenty of DLC. You don’t have a lot of content, but it’s not an ocean. You can start with Alan Wake and then move on to American Nightmare. This will allow you to play through Control before moving on to AWE.
