Dark rituals, inhuman beasts, and a typewriter… Alan Wake II arrives tomorrow

Fresh from the Xbox Partner Preview, comes the launch trailer for the latest from Remedy, tomorrow’s Alan Wake II.

Wake up

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Alan Wake. The supernaturally-plagued writer last appeared in Alan Wake’s American Nightmare in 2012, before vanishing from the gaming landscape. It was developer Remedy’s 2019 action title Control that brought his name (and universe) back into the zeitgeist, and led into what would be a digital-only sequel, that’s now set to arrive tomorrow.

From the last look at the title, which appeared at the Xbox Partner Preview the other day, it’s looking phenomenal too. The game looks dark as all get out, filled with evil creatures, some kind of cult, and with Wake’s own cursed writing serving as a driving force.

It also delivers a new hero with FBI agent Saga Anderson joining Wake to solve a mystery that spans two worlds.

Ritualistic murders in a small town. An FBI agent looking for answers, and a writer looking for an escape from the nightmare he is writing. Who is the victim, and who is the monster?

Xbox YouTube listing

If you’ve yet to lock up a copy for yourself, Alan Wake II is offering a pre-order incentive for the Deluxe Edition. That should be good for a few more hours if you want it, since the game launches tomorrow, October 27th. That includes the “Ornate Revolver Skin”, and the Deluxe Edition itself contains a few more cosmetic items to boot.

Whether you pre-order or not though, Alan Wake II is launching tomorrow for the PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5. Just a heads up one more time too, that this is a digital-exclusive game. Remedy is eschewing the physical format this time around, and while we’ve gotta believe it’s always a possibility, we haven’t heard anything about an eventual physical release.
