Alan Wake 2 PS5 PlayStation

Alan Wake 2 is out at the end of the month, with the surreal sequel hitting PS5 on 27th October. For those planning on picking it up, Remedy Entertainment creative director Sam Lake is here to assure you that "pretty significant" free additional content is on the way, which is rarely a bad thing.

During an onstage EGX interview (thanks, VGC), Lake and his iconic face teased some post-launch fun in the form of free DLC, stating: "We do have free DLC drops coming, and they are pretty significant. I’m expecting us to be going more into detail pretty soon after the game is out, but all of that will be free for everyone who gets the game."

Previously, Remedy had confirmed that Alan Wake 2 would receive two paid expansions somewhere down the line, called Night Springs and Lake House, respectively, and that remains the case. It will be a digital-only release and was built to be a cinematic "30fps experience", but a Performance mode is there for those who prefer it.

Are you excited for the release of Alan Wake 2? Will you be skipping it for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 (out 20th October), juggling both, or doing neither? Make some tough decisions in the comments section below.
