Launch Trailer for Alan Wake: American Nightmare and the Original Alan Wake Steams Up Your PC!

Post Thumb:


Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will release next week for Xbox LIVE Arcade, and Remedy Entertainment is still pushing hard to market their game. New press releases announced new facts for the game and showed off an all new launch trailer for the upcoming release.

From the Official Press Release

  • Masterful Storytelling: Featuring the kind of excellently crafted single player campaign that Remedy is known for, the story is a standalone spin-off experience that anyone can play while also taking the fiction forward for true Alan Wake fans.
  • Surviving the Night: As the catalyst for the initial project, a brand new action arcade mode called “Fight till Dawn” has the player guiding Wake through 5 unique maps as they try to survive a full night of enemy onslaughts while attempting to rack up a high score.
  • Against All Odds: Enemies progressively get harder to put down in each round of “Fight till Dawn”. Despite how bleak the situation may seem, there is always light in the darkest of nights, as safe havens, supplies and unlockable weapons dot the landscape.
  • Afraid of the Dark: Encounter brand new enemies in both modes like The Giant, a mutated beast of darkness that wields a metal cutting saw from hell, and The Bird Man, a dark persona that dissipates into a flock of birds when you shoot him.
  • Larger Arsenal: While the flashlight and pistol are still the bread and butter in the fight against darkness, new weapons are available like the pulp action nail gun and deadly crossbow that penetrates through enemy’s shadow shields.
  • Literary Genius: Collectable manuscript pages can be found throughout the adventure to gain a better insight of what’s happening and to unlock the weapon caches littered throughout the single player campaign and “Fight till Dawn”.
  • Alan Wake’s American Nightmare invades the Xbox LIVE Markeplace on February 22, 2012.
