What will the Alan Wake 2 DLCs be about? We launch our theories


As 2023 draws to a close, everyone already knows what their favorite video games of the year have been. Although Baldur&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s Gate 3 won most of the GOTY awards, Remedy Entertainment&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s Alan Wake 2 was not too far behind, as the Finnish company brought to life a masterpiece in the survival horror genre. The experience, however, has not come to an end.

We already know that Alan Wake 2 will have two content expansions called The Night Rises and The Lake House. Although Remedy has already offered some detailsit is a mystery what we will find in them. That&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s why today we want to theorize about the big question of the remedyverse fandom: what will the Alan Wake 2 DLCs be about? Below you will find their official descriptions and some notes with our own intuition, which, needless to say, will contain spoilers of the main story.

What will the Alan Wake 2 DLCs be about?

These are the descriptions offered by Remedy officially:

Expansion 1: Night Rises.

Dreams and Visions. Fiction is written and becomes reality. Fiction collapses and is nothing more than words on a page. Such are the stories&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588230; in &https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588220;Night Rises.&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588221;

Play as various familiar characters from the world of Alan Wake and experience the unexplainable in the multiple self-contained episodes of &https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588220;The Night Rises,&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588221; a fictional series set in the Alan Wake universe.

Expansion 2: The Lake House

The Lake House is a mysterious facility located on the shores of Cauldron Lake where an independent government organization conducts a secret investigation&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588230; until something goes wrong.

Explore The Lake House and experience two separate adventures where the realities of Saga Anderson and Alan Wake collide once again.

Night Rises (known as Night Springs in its English version) will feature several playable characters and multiple self-conclusive episodes. This sci-fi show already had a starring role in the saga&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s past in Alan Wake&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s American Nightmare and will now return with a different focus. Our theory is that the central axis of all the stories will be Warlin Door, the late night host who pursues Alan in the Dark Place. The final stretch of the game hints that Door has immense power and is somehow in charge of this strange space. Maybe The Night Rises will let us know more about it.

For its part, The Lake House is a location that we already saw in the main story of Alan Wake 2 and that was closely related to the FBC (the Federal Bureau of Control). Although the official description tells us about how Saga and Alan&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s realities collide again, our theory is that Jesse Faden, Control&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s protagonist, will make an appearance in some way in the expansion, the same way Alan Wake did in Control&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17135277588217;s AWE DLC. It would be the perfect way to keep feeding that exciting remedyverse.
