During Gamescom Opening Night Live, Remedy Entertainment and Epic Games released a new trailer for Alan Wake 2. This trailer, entitled "The Dark Place," shows off a bit from a mission that takes place early on in the game.

In the trailer, we get a look at Wake's ability to Rewrite Reality, along with looks at new characters, some of the game's live-action cutscenes, and more.

Alan Wake 2 features two playable protagonists and is being built on Remedy Entertainment's own Northlight engine. Alan Wake 2 will be out on October 27th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via the Epic Games Store.

Alan Wake 2 pushes players into a psychological horror story from the perspective of two playable characters. Saga Anderson risks her life to solve a deadly mystery of murders in the Pacific Northwest while Alan Wake attempts to rewrite his reality to escape the depths of the Dark Place, a nightmare version of New York City.

Taking full advantage of the power of current consoles and PC, and driven by Remedy Entertainment’s proprietary Northlight engine, players will take on powerful supernatural enemies in desperate situations filled with intense suspense and unexpected twists. Anderson and Wake are two heroes on two desperate journeys in two separate realities, connected at heart in ways neither of them can understand.​
