After saving his wife, Alan was trapped, but not dead. He has endured the hell of the Dark Place for 13 years. Here, his nightmares, fears, and stories manifest as reality around him. For 13 years, he has been fighting to stay sane and write a story that would change reality around him for him to escape. So far, he has failed.

Nearby is the run-down city of Watery, Cauldron Lake, and the area if fit for exploration. The story promises to be layered with surprises buried inside it,
Alan Wake 2 will be made available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. The game will be supported post-launch with both free content as well as two paid expansions: Night Springs and the Lake House.
