Alan Wakes The Writer DLC Coming October 12
Remedy has released a new trailer for "The Writer," the next downloadable "episode" for their psychological thriller Alan Wake. Along with showing off the latest reality-bending trappings the DLC will throw players into, the trailer (via GameTrailers) also reveals when itll be available and a price: October 12, for 560 Microsoft Points ($7).
As Remedy previously revealed, "The Writer" will be the last downloadable episode released for Alan Wake, a fact highlighted in the trailer with taglines like "End the Nightmare." Think of this, then, as something of a season finale for a game that Remedy always pitched as having a television series-like structure.
Or, this may even be a series finale -- Remedy also previously revealed that Microsoft hadnt signed on for a sequel to Alan Wake (at least as of June), although Remedys Oskari Hakkinen was optimistic it would happen, saying that "were happy with the partnership and [Microsofts] happy with the game."
