Presented with a film entirely made in CGI, Alan Wake 2 will continue the story opened 11 years agowhen Xbox 360 gamers first met the author who gave the video game Remedy its name. The dynamic adventure written by Sam Lake (Max Payne) and his colleagues Mikko Rautalahti and Petri Jrvilehto had proven to be one of the most engrossing and exciting of all Xbox titles: a ‘horror’-tinged story that launched a true multiverse that found in the recent pi Control its latest incarnation. .

According to Lake, this second chapter represents Remedy’s first real attempt to tackle the subgenre of survival horror.
