The gameplay for Alan Wake 2 was extensively revealed during Summer Game Fest, and it looks pretty wonderful!
One of the most eagerly anticipated video game sequels, Alan Wake 2 was widely believed for a long time to never ever be released.
The cult classic survival horror game was first launched by Remedy Entertainment in 2010, but it was only available on the Xbox 360.
Later, it was made available on PC. It also came out at the same time as titles like Red Dead Redemption, which caused it to be somewhat overlooked.
Even though it was well-liked by fans, it was not a major economic success, which led Microsoft to decline a sequel and Remedy to move on to other games like Quantum Break and Control.
A few years ago, a sequel to Alan Wake 2 was given the go-ahead after receiving funding from Epic Games and regaining ownership of the Alan Wake property from Microsoft.
Now that Alan Wake 2 will be released in a few months, we are beginning to get a taste of what Remedy is doing.
The game appears to be significantly different from its predecessor, placing greater distance between similarities to Twin Peaks and adopting a much more overt form of horror.
While Alan Wake will return, the game will also have Saga Anderson as its lead character.
Anderson is a skilled FBI agent who is looking into the murder of Agent Nightingale, a character from the first game.
It goes without saying that this is not just a repetition of what we saw in the original game; rather, Remedy is using the foundation of that game to create something entirely fresh that should appeal to fans who have been waiting for this sequel for a long time.
Since the new gameplay appears to be a significant improvement beyond merely holding a flashlight and firing a rifle, it should hopefully keep fans entertained until the complete game is released.
It appears to have more dynamic components, which should make the experience more interesting as well.
