Time to stock up on flashlights and coffee by your PC, because
As of the Xbox 360 version makes clear, this isn’t a full sequel to Alan Wake. However, it does seem to be a fairly entertaining return to his strange, darkness-afflicted world. There’s a main, Twilight Zone-esque campaign with something of a recurring narrative at its heart, a survival mode, and a bunch of pseudo-spiders to enjoy. Plus a decent villain in the form of the somewhat crazy Mr Scratch.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will be available on Steam from 22 May. It’s already there to pre-order for a reduced price of $13.50 USD if you fancy. There’s no word on any fancy PC extras, but Remedy did a fine job adding lots of lovely graphical options to the Alan Wake PC release, so hopefully that’ll be the case again.
