Alan Wake
8 New Delightfully Dark Alan Wake Screens
Written By
View author's profile

I find it a little ironic that the closer we get to Alan Wake's release date - yes, it is coming this year - the darker the screenshots get. You know, as it approaches the light at the end of the tunnel.... Yeah, you get it now.

Thanks to an update from Microsoft today, we can bring you 8 new delightfully dark Alan Wake screenshots that really show off the game's whole battle of dark versus light.

Could Alan Wake be the eerie, dark and scary atmospheric adventure we've been chasing after since Resident Evil 4? Let's bloody hope so.

Check out the rest of the new Alan Wake screens in the gallery here.

Game looks pretty nice... doesn't look particularly like a horror title though. I'm really only expecting horror on par with Resi 5.

Looks good, but the fact you can see Alan holding a gun leads me to suspect that this isn't the game it was originally ment to be anymore.

Looks pretty nice, but its hard to tell if these shots are during game play or cut scenes... Either way I am excited about a new title trying out something other than the norm.

Most anticipated game for 2010 from my side. I am expecting a new reference in horror/psychological atmosphere and hopefully it will not be such a simple shooter as RE5.

"Could Alan Wake be the eerie, dark and scary atmospheric adventure we've been chasing after since Resident Evil 4? Let's bloody hope so." - I honestly think Alone in The Dark was an eerie and tense atmosphered game and i quite liked it but I don't think many other people feel that way :( Can't wait for this game though, screenies look good :D

This game looks amazing and really, looks like a truly original game with many twists to it. Sounds like a game my friends will hate cuz all they care about is games that give you a good multiplayer experience. Even if its already really old and they go and say its the best game out there. Yes, im looking at you MW2. Your fun but your not different like lovely Alan Wake!

psychological thriller and horror very often blend into the same sort of fear in video games, so it's hard to debate whether its one or the other. Either way, I know nothing of this game and I really want to rent it when it comes out XD

Pretty sure the gun isn't effecting the gameplay too much. From what i recall, in a preview it was said that Alan would find a weapon or two along the way. But they'd be weak, and very limited in use. The only real weapon of worth is still the torch.

I guess the gun is just to use on 'strong' enemies who can walk in the light, who appear sporadically to break up the monotony.

Hope so anyway, I'd hate this to turn into a game with shooting being the key way to survive.

Hopefully it ll be a spine chilling survival horror, we dont have many games like that on xbox360 so far. Dead Space and Clive Barker`s Jericho are the only ones who comes to my mind... but even so they are not like the old Resident Evils, Fatal Frame or Clock Tower 3. Please Alan Wake, Im expecting a lot from you dont let me down! lol

Is it just me or is the bad guy in the background of the first screen and the bad guy in the second screen in the exact same pose?

I don't think that we have had a true survival horror game in a while now, (Alone In The Dark, Dead Space and RE5 being more horror action), and Alan Wake itself looking more action orientated. I did have high hopes for Rainy Woods, but not so sure about that either now. Still, nothing wrong with a bit of action, so roll on Alan... at last. :)

Cant wait to play this. I hope its even more twisted than Max Payne, & scarier than RE1(How i remember it), & creepier than BioShock. GOTY if it can do all that.
