Alan Wake 2's First Story Expansion, Night Springs, Gets 2024 Release Window
Another expansion, The Lake House, is coming sometime later.
Alan Wake II's previously announced expansions, Night Springs and The Lakehouse, are coming into focus. Remedy confirmed to IGN that the first expansion, Night Springs, is set for release in "late spring 2024," but this window is subject to change. The Lake House comes later and has no date.
Remedy also shared the official plot synopses for the expansions. In Night Springs, players will take on the roles of "several familiar characters" as they take part in "self-contained" episodes of the in-game TV show Night Springs.
In The Lake House, players will visit a "mysterious facility" on the shores of Cauldron Lake. "Secret research" is going on in the facility, and things go badly.
Players can get the two expansions by purchasing Alan Wake II's Expansion Pass via the $80 Deluxe Edition. Whether or not the two expansions will be available by themselves is unknown.
In addition to the two expansions, Alan Wake II will add a New Game+ mode after launch and a photo mode.
