Remedy Entertainment says the replica New York has a "lot of history", including a narrative experience involving Alice.
Remedy Entertainment has been trying to make a sequel to Alan Wake for well over a decade, though development for the product took about 4 years.
Remedy Entertainment says it didn't want Alan Wake 2 to "go neck to neck" with other major releases scheduled for mid-October.
New gameplay footage shows off much more of The Dark Place, combat mechanics, Alan's Mind Palace, and more.
The survival horror title's newest trailer also offers a glimpse of how Remedy will be making use of live action this time around.
"October is an amazing month for game launches and we hope this date shift gives more space for everyone to enjoy their favorite games," Remedy Entertainment says.
"Camera perspective and things like that, yes, there are good references from the recent Resident Evil games that we did look at," says game director Kyle Rowley.
Game director Kyle Rowley has seemingly suggested that we'll be learning more about the titular protagonist's side of the story in The Dark Place.
Accessible anytime, the Mind Place is where Saga investigates the case, arranging clues on the Case Board and checking objectives.
Creative director Sam Lake says the team created a new concept for Alan Wake 2 "between every game project we have made."
Remedy's head of VFX Johannes Richter does reiterate that the focus is more on "spine-chilling atmosphere and psychological frights."
"We didn't want to release something that we weren't proud of, basically, and we didn't want players to play," said Remedy's Kyle Rowley.
