Alan Wake is coming to Dead By Daylight.
Starting January 30, players will be able to play as Wake, who is styled after his appearance in Alan Wake 2.
Dead by Daylight’s Alan Wake Chapter features both actor Ilkka Villi, who plays Alan during the franchise’s live-action scenes, as well as Matthew Porretta, who has voiced him throughout the franchise. Porretta has recorded new voice lines exclusively for Dead By Daylight.
“Since it first launched back in 2010, Alan Wake has been a huge influence to us on the Dead by Daylight team,” says Mathieu Coté, Head of Partnerships at Behaviour Interactive.
“From broad themes to specific elements, both our games already feel connected in many ways. This is a character we always thought would be right at home in the Dead by Daylight universe.
“To finally see Alan come to the Fog as a Survivor feels like a full-circle moment, especially as the recently released second entry in the franchise is still fresh in player’s minds.”
“From our early excited conversations on about our collaboration with Behaviour Interactive, it was clear that the lore of both games were surprisingly compatible, drawing from many similar inspirations, a true match in… hell. With Alan Wake 2 now out, the time is right for another nightmare to begin.”
Alan Wake 2 was released in 2023 to critical acclaim. In December, VGC named it our Game of the Year.
“In one of the best years ever for video games, Alan Wake 2 manages to stand alone. It’s an incredible survival horror game that’s outrageously confident, full of weirdness and humor, and is genuinely going to change the way that the video game industry tells stories.”
