One of the highlights of this afternoon’s PlayStation Showcase was the gameplay demo of alan wake 2long-awaited sequel to a cult classic, from the seventh generation of consoles, whose release date was also scheduled for October 17.
What was left unsaid at the event was that Remedy made the decision to release the game, only, in digital formata decision that at another time would have been controversial and even today, could be considered unusual for a game single player high profile.
That said, Remedy offers a fairly logical and even fan-friendly explanation:
A large number of people have migrated to the digital format exclusively. You can buy a Sony PlayStation 5 without a disc drive, and Microsoft’s Xbox Series S is a digital-only console. It is not uncommon to release modern games only in digital format. In second place, not releasing a disc version helps keep the price of the game at $50.99 / £59.99 and the PC version at $49.99 / £49.99. Ultimately, we didn’t want to release a disc product that would require a download to play. We don’t think this provides a great experience.
What is Alan Wake 2 about?
According to the same FAQ where we got the explanation about the digital version of alan wake 2 and based on what was shown in the trailer, we know that the game will tell the story of 2 characters, Saga Anderson, an FBI detective who comes to Bright Falls to investigate some ritual murders and, of course, Alan Wake, a writer trapped in a prison of nightmares. alan wake 2 It will be released on October 17 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and the Epic Games Store..
