There’s currently been a lot of speak about the partnership involving Remedy Games’ Handle and Alan Wake. Handle is a game exactly where alternate dimensions have begun creeping into our personal, and amongst the quite a few Easter Eggs that this narrative device makes it possible for for are a couple intriguing callbacks to our Alan. These come in the kind of Altered Planet Events, or AWEs – these damned leaky dimensions – and the supporting in-game documents which report on these events. From a secret region that triggers his look, to documents that track his movement in the aftermath of the 2010 game. Pretty curious.
Now in a newly released content material roadmap, the developer seem to be teasing an official Alan Wake crossover expansion coming to Handle.
So far it is identified only as AWE. Slated for sometime mid-2020, AWE will stick to the release of Control’s initial bureau-investigating expansion The Foundation. There’s almost certainly one thing to be study into the reality that Alan Wake and Altered Worlds share the exact same initials. What’s intriguing even though is the game’s graphic style. The letters AWE are split horizontally, with art from Handle taking up the decrease half of text and art from Alan Wake – see that flashlight of his? – in the prime half.
“AWE, will take Jesse into a new region of the Oldest Residence, the Investigations Sector, exactly where the Bureau closely examines Altered Planet Events,” is the only morsel Remedy presents.
Handle will also be receiving a handful of totally free content material updates this year. A photography mode which will let you pause the game on the fly and take pics all through your tour of the paranormal is becoming added to the game in fall. Later, coming in December is finish-game content material known as Expeditions which sees yer gal Jesse assisting Safety Chief Arish discover the mysterious Formation and its equally mysterious surroundings. Remedy describes this as a single of the tougher challenges in the game, which signifies you will will need some decent gear and skills to survive it.
Control’s initial expansion, The Foundation, is slated for early 2020. This is a paid expansion that delves into the history of the Oldest Residence. This time Jesse is going underground at the request of the secretive Board, exploring what specifically lies beneath the Bureau. “Expect points to get weird,” says the developer.
