You can play it without having played the first game, as it offers a standalone experience, but has connections to the first Alan Wake. This time, Alan finds himself trying to escape the Dark Place while keeping his sanity.

Alan Wake 2 will be released on Friday, Oct. 27 on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S, just in time for Halloween. The sequel to Alan Wake will be a survival horror game instead of a cinematic action-adventure but will still have the thriller author Alan Wake as one of the protagonists.

This time, players can also control FBI Agent Saga Anderson. She isn’t as experienced with the supernatural as Alan, but both connect in multiple ways, according to the sequel’s creative director and lead writer, Sam Lake.
