Alan Wake Confirmed (Again) For September

In case you haven’t heard, Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller from Remedy, the developer of successful titles including Max Payne and Max Payne 2.  The game is due for the Xbox 360 and PC – and has been re-confirmed once again for September 2008.

The game puts the player in control of Alan Wake, a successful horror writer until he lost his muse and love (all very Silent Hill so far).  He travels to Bright Falls in order to start afresh and come to terms with his loss.  He writes a book about his nightmares (as you do as a successful author, as Stephen King will attest to) but unfortunately, these nightmare begin to come true.

The game gives you access to a cinematic world that enables you to roam freely in hyper-realistic, dynamic and interactive environments. Alan Wake is mission-based with a deeply engaging and suspenseful story line unveiling new twists and profound character revelations at every turn.  Apparently this will give it a combined feel of Silent Hill or Resident Evil mixed with Grand Theft Auto (as you have freedom to move around the city).

Apparently, the game has excellent graphics and you can certainly see that from the video.  More to the point, the game will use an exceptionally detailed physics engine along with playing with the dark and light to have you both afraid and using the light as your ultimate ally.  Frankly, it sounds quite ‘I Am Legend’ and I can’t wait for it.  Is it all going to be a dream though?  Certainly the A.Wake reference would suggest so…
