REMEDY ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW ARCADE MODE IN ALAN WAKE’S AMERICAN NIGHTMARE AND MID Q1 2012 RELEASE
ESPOO, FINLAND – December 19, 2011 – It was announced today that Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, Remedy Entertainment’s stand-alone digital spin-off for Xbox LIVE Arcade, will include a relentlessly intense arcade mode called “Fight till Dawn”. Published by Microsoft Studios, the game will be released in middle of the first quarter of 2012.
The main story mode in Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is part of the ‘Night Springs’ TV show fiction and offers an exaggerated pulp action adventure where the horrors of reality have the all too easy habit of coming true. Alan Wake finds himself stuck in an altered reality filled with dangerous shadows; he must leap into action and pursue his evil doppelganger, Mr. Scratch, across the Arizona mesa towards the town of Night Springs. Scratch, a supernatural serial killer, has his evil plans set on Wake’s wife, Alice. Wake must learn to control reality itself and unravel the secret to Mr. Scratch’s demise while using the power of light to put an end to the darkness.
The previously unannounced “Fight till Dawn” arcade mode places Wake in the battle of his life. Players must survive a full night of enemy onslaughts while racking up their score. With loads of new enemies to battle, players will require a deep arsenal of weapons; from old stalwarts like the flare gun to wild new favorites like the nail gun and old school Remedy favorites like the Uzi. Thankfully, safe havens and unlockable weapons dot the landscape, allowing for a momentary respite from the darkest of nights. Surviving until dawn is only the beginning as online leaderboards pit friends head to head to see who the real champion of light is.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will be published by Microsoft Studios and will be available for Xbox Live Arcade in mid Q1 2012. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. Please keep an eye out for updates on Facebook www.facebook.com/alanwake and Twitter @Remedygames.
The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (10 minutes ago)
Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (17 minutes ago)
Microsoft just needs to develop some new original IP and quit relying on Forza, Halo and Gears to carry them. Those franchises just don't have the pull they once had. (18 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: OG Xbox generation also wins hands down. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: contrary to popular belief, people do play multiplatform games too. :) (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: If the Scorpio gives you the best console versions of multiplatform games and you're already into the XB1, then it's probably not a bad idea. After all, most games are multiplatform. (1 Hour ago)
I absolutely love TES but at the same time I am exited to see a brand new IP from that studio. I'll just expect TES VI on Scorpio and Pro's successors, lol. (2 Hours ago)
