A second downloadable episode has already appeared for Alan Wake. This second episode will be called “The Writer” and, according to the listing on the DLC menu, will cost about 800 Microsoft Points ($10). This new episode was vaguely described, saying that Wake would ‘find himself in strange circumstances’ and that, he must ‘face one increasingly nightmarish situation after another.’ Which…doesn’t that describe the whole game? The release date for this DLC has yet to be announced, but we can assume it will be sometime after July 27th, which is when the first episode of DLC, entitled “The Signal”, will be released. I suppose we’ll all just have to wait and see exactly what nightmarish situations Wake will find himself in.

Dun dun duuun!
