This guy can't catch a break!
This isn’t fiction—it’s real. Alan Wake, star of the critically acclaimed Alan Wake franchise, is coming into The Fog as Dead by Daylight’s newest Survivor. Starting January 30, players can step into the shoes of the troubled writer in this collaboration between Behaviour Interactive and Remedy Entertainment. Players who can’t wait until release can try Alan Wake in Dead by Daylight’s time-limited public test-build on Steam now.
In the world of Alan Wake, Alan is a talented writer best known to his fans as the author of the hit Alex Casey series, including Return to Sender and The Sudden Stop. Unfortunately, a vacation to Bright Falls took a grim turn for the worse when he found himself face to face with a supernatural darkness. The plot of his latest novel, a horror story he didn’t remember writing, began coming to life, resulting in him becoming trapped within the Dark Place.
As a prisoner, Alan Wake is fighting tooth and nail to escape. However, his attempt to write his way to freedom led him straight into the thralls of The Entity, trading one Dark Place for another.
“As I searched for a way out, for a little light in the dark, I recalled a script I wrote for Night Springs about a place engulfed in fog. As those memories poured back, the same fog surrounded me. Once again, I find myself in an unfamiliar place—trapped. I need to find a way out. I don’t know why, but I know rewriting that script is key.” -Alan Wake, Lost Manuscript
And of course, it wouldn’t be Alan Wake without the actors that bring him to life. Dead by Daylight’s Alan Wake Chapter features both the likeness of actor Ilkka Villi, who plays Alan during the franchise’s live-action scenes, as well as Matthew Porretta, who has voiced him throughout the franchise. Players will be able to hear brand-new, original voice lines as Alan Wake faces his latest deadly challenge in The Fog.
From films to video games, Dead by Daylight is home to some of the greatest characters in horror history. With the inclusion of Alan Wake, its diverse roster of Survivors grows larger still, adding a staple character from one of horror gaming’s top franchises. Hot on the heels of the release of the critically acclaimed Alan Wake 2, now is the perfect time to experience a new dark chapter for the beloved character.
Along with the release of this latest Chapter comes a special limited-time Modifier called Lights Out that adds a terrifying new layer of fear to Dead by Daylight. Modifiers are brand new adjustments to the existing Trial format that offer players a unique and exciting experience. With Lights Out, players will find themselves in a terrifying atmosphere stripped of several of the key tools they’re used to.
The Lights Out Modifier will be implemented in game in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned.
The Dead by Daylight Alan Wake Chapter will be available on all supported platforms on January 30th.
