Alan Wake’s American Nightmare Takes a Trip to the Desert in These New Screens


You won't be seeing much in the way of trees in the upcoming Alan Wake game. Where Remedy's first outing with the writer-turned-hero took place in the creepy forests of the Pacific Northwest, American Nightmare puts players in a haunted desert. New weapons—including what looks like a nail gun—and new enemies shop up in these shots. Some of the giant-sized antagonists, like those spiders, show signs of being irradiated or it might just be more nightmares-made-real weirdness breaking through to the real world.

There's also a developer diary where folks from Remedy talk about how American Nightmare will have more of a grindhouse action feel and what's gone into making this Xbox Live follow-up to their critically acclaimed title. Flashlights will power up again when Alan Wake's American Nightmare hits on Feb. 22.
