With Remedy Entertainment’s Alan Wake 2 out today, the developer has updated the game’s official FAQ to include details about its upcoming paid expansions.

The first is Night Springs, and the FAQ states, “Visions and dreams. Fiction is written and coming true. Fiction collapses and remains just words on a page. These are those stories… in Night Springs. Play as several familiar characters from the world of Alan Wake and experience the unexplainable in multiple self-contained episodes of Night Springs, a fictional TV show set in the world of Alan Wake.”

It seemingly allows players to experience other characters’ perspectives outside the base game’s protagonists. Perhaps it will wrap up any existing storylines, if not revisit characters from previous titles. Time will tell.

As for The Lake House, it may sound like the ill-fated residence that Alan and Alice Wake venture to in the first game. In the expansion, it’s described as “a mysterious facility situated on the shores of Cauldron Lake set up by an independent government organization to conduct secret research… until something goes wrong.” Saga Anderson and Alan Wake will be playable in two separate adventures, though it states their realities will “collide again.”

Whatever the outcome may be in Alan Wake 2, it’s another chapter in the Remedy-verse and will lay some groundwork for the story in future titles like Control 2. The expansions don’t have any release dates, so stay tuned for further details later. Remedy will also have free updates post-launch, including New Game Plus and Nightmare difficulty.

Alan Wake 2 launches today for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Check out our review here.
