The game is a fully-fledged survival horror game, rather than a horror action game like the original Alan Wake on Xbox 360. We got a look at some of the horrors in store in a gameplay trailer which showed off just how Remedy is approaching the genre.
In the trailer, we get to see Saga Anderson, who is another playable character alongside Alan. A string of murders has threatened Bright Falls and the small-town community is being assisted by FBI agent Anderson who is investigating the murders. During her mission, she discovers pages of a horror story that begins to come true around her and lead her to the events of Alan Wake, the horror writer who went missing 13 years ago.
