The story will play out in an episodic format, with a television show-style presentation similar to Lost
where each episode/chapter brings another piece to the puzzle of the main plot. Remedy has confirmed that Alan Wake
is only the first season of a bigger story, opening the door for future sequels.
Light plays a significant role in game play and strategy. The enemies, called "the Taken" in the game, are sensitive to light, encouraging the player to take advantage of environmental light sources and placing significant emphasis on the flashlight as a primary weapon. Players also have the ability to set traps that illuminate when triggered, either damaging or temporarily immobilizing an enemy. They are then destroyed and turned into batteries.
The game is to be released May 18th.
