Alan Wake’s American Nightmare – Available now on Xbox Live Arcade!

HELSINKI, FINLAND – February 22, 2012 – Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft Studios announced today that Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, their stand-alone digital spin-off adventure, is now available for 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE ® Arcade for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. This downloadable adventure is a featured title in the third-annual Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party program, delivering the season’s biggest and best digital games. Featuring a thrilling pulp action adventure story mode and an all new “Fight till Dawn” arcade mode, American Nightmare will shine a new light on the world of Wake while appealing to fans and newcomers alike.

“With Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, we wanted to challenge the conventions of what makes an Xbox LIVE Arcade title” says Matias Myllyrinne, CEO of Remedy. “The game is a combination of pick-up-and-play arcade action that players expect out of an Xbox LIVE Arcade title, as well as a substantial pulp inspired single-player campaign that Remedy is known for.”

The single player campaign comes from the darkest corners of the ‘Night Springs’, a Twilight Zone inspired fiction. American Nightmare is an exaggerated and gritty rendering of that world – where the horrors of reality have the all too easy habit of coming true. When Wake becomes stuck in the alternate shadowed world of Night Springs, he must hunt down his evil doppelganger, Mr. Scratch, to find the answers. A supernatural serial killer, Scratch has his evil mind fixated on Wake’s wife, Alice, and even more horribly, Wake’s demise. To survive and thrive in the darkest of nights, Wake must learn to control reality itself and unravel the secret to Mr. Scratch’s demise with a trusty flashlight by his side and whatever weapon he can find.

The brand new “Fight till Dawn” arcade mode places Wake in the battle of his life. Players are tasked with surviving a full night of brutal onslaughts while racking up their score. With a myriad of new enemies to battle, Wake won’t have any trouble since he’ll have plenty of deadly options within his arsenal: old stalwarts like the flare gun, wild new favorites like the nail gun and old school Remedy favorites like the Uzi. Thankfully, safe havens and unlockable weapons litter the landscape, allowing for a momentary respite from the darkness. Surviving until dawn is only the beginning though, as online leaderboards pit friends head-to-head to see who the real champion of light is.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is available now on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 for 1200 Microsoft Points. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.

    Cool , I’ve been waiting for this

  2. Fun pulp title. Already blazed through it. Another excellent installment and very interesting premise. Now where’s the official Alan Wake 2 that’s all King & Lovecraft? We have plenty of action titles out there, the Story and Atmosphere were what made AW truly great(all-time fav) bring on the creepy Twin Peaks again!

    Exceptionally for an XBLA game. but is not as good as Alan Wake 1. especially for the first title in French soundtrack is simply beautiful. so I hope that Alan Wake 2 will be located entirely in French as the first. Bravo for your work and live more as you entered at the end of the credits of games.

    hello! i would like to ask some questions here and i want the developpers to reply and not the others to spam whatever comes to their mind.
    firstly,is this alan wake or just sequel or sth to it and there’s gonna be an alan wake 2?
    secondly,does it have good graphics? i mean like the first one.. it’s hard to believe a live arcade game can be a “real” game and have nice graphics
    and last but not least,are you planning to publish it on pc as well?

    p.s you better don’t destroy the amazing gameplay and plot of the game 😉
