Alan Wake 2 has won the ‘best’ of three awards at The Game Awards 2023 for the Game Direction, Narrative, and Art Direction categories. The gripping game by Remedy is a direct sequel to Alan Wake, a third-person title that follows the journey of a writer trapped in dream-like sequences that feel all too familiar. The sequel is a daunting story that should be in any gamer’s collection if they’re a fan of psychological thrillers.

First off, make sure you head to the Epic Games Store’s official page, which marks you eligible for a 33% off coupon. This coupon will be automatically applied to any game you’ll be purchasing later on. Next, simply head to Alan Wake 2’s page. The game is currently on a discount (20% off), and adding the sweet 33% off to it makes for a hefty 53% off overall. That’s a low price to pay for a game that’s so promising.

The timing of this couldn’t be any more absurd, considering how the game recently won three major awards at The Game Awards 2023 ceremony. In total, the game was nominated for eight awards. This wasn’t all too surprising, considering how well-received Alan Wake 2 has been ever since its launch in October.

For the current price, you’ll be getting a lot of value considering how the game’s campaign runs for 20-24 hours on a standard playthrough. If you’re a completionist, get ready to spend a good 28-30 hours uncovering all the mysteries hidden in Alan Wake 2’s alluring and dark world.

We’re not sure if a similar discount is likely to repeat itself soon, so grab the game while the chance is right. Furthermore, the discounted price seems to only appear on the Epic (PC) version of the game and not on consoles. PC gamers who are fans of horror and psychological thrillers, this one’s for you.

Alan Wake 2 Is a Compelling Game Worth the Price

The game has received a lot of praise for its storytelling.

The makers of Alan Wake 2 haven’t hesitated to make a game that asks more questions than it solves. And that’s nothing to complain about. For a game that’s currently available for nearly half of its original pricing, it’s pretty much a blind purchase for anyone who’s in for storytelling that’s nothing short of a masterpiece.

The game runs beautifully on PC, with ray-traced graphics and DLSS 3.5, which adds to the game’s hauntingly dark themes. The game often switches between being a psychological thriller that tells the tale of a writer trapped within the shadows of his own demons and a title that tests your survivability when faced against the creepiest monstrosities to exist in a video game setting.

The actors have done a phenomenal job of portraying believable characters trapped in unforgiving situations.

The Epic Games Store often has great deals and sales that bring lesser-known titles to the spotlight. But in this case, we’re looking at a successful sequel to a fan-favorite title that should certainly be in your collection, even if you’re new to the world of Alan Wake. And if you’re a fan of Remedy Entertainment, a studio known for its storytelling that strays away from regular horror and instead dives into everything eerie, weird, and thought-provoking. 

It’s another ‘Remedy absurdity’ at its best, diving into some challenging themes that many developers might otherwise stray away from. The originality of it clearly feels original and inspired, and the game is nothing short of a masterpiece, according to many user and critic reviews.
