The first expansion, Night Springs, is currently scheduled to be released in late spring 2024, although Remedy told IGN its launch window is subject to change.
The game’s second expansion, The Lakehouse, has yet to receive a release window.
Both expansions will be available at no extra cost to players who purchase the game’s Deluxe Edition and will also be available to buy separately.
Expansion 1 – Night Springs
- Visions and dreams. Fiction is written and coming true. Fiction collapses and remains just words on a page. These are those stories… in Night Springs.
- Play as several familiar characters from the world of Alan Wake and experience the unexplainable in multiple self-contained episodes of Night Springs, a fictional tv-show set in the world of Alan Wake.
Expansion 2 – The Lake House
- The Lake House is a mysterious facility situated on the shores of Cauldron Lake set up by an independent government organization to conduct secret research… until something goes wrong.
- Explore the Lake House and embark on two separate adventures as the realities of Saga Anderson and Alan Wake collide again.
Remedy also confirmed this week that Alan Wake 2 will receive a New Game Plus mode in a post-launch update, with “exact release timing still TBD.”
The mode will enable players to retain all unlocked weapons and upgrades. It will also introduce a fresh Nightmare difficulty level and a “new alternative narrative, including new Manuscript pages and new video content”.
Alan Wake 2 was released today for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC via the Epic Games Store. VGC’s Alan Wake 2 review called it “a confident and often ground-breaking thriller” featuring brilliant writing, incredible visuals and genuine scares.
