The previously-announced New Game+ Mode for Alan Wake 2, titled “Final Draft”, will launch on December 11th, per the team’s acceptance speech for Best Direction at the 2023 Game Awards. The mode will feature a new difficulty setting, allow the player to carry over all their weapons and upgrades from the previous playthroughs, and the team has teased some additional story content. This includes six new manuscript pages, more live-action sequences that play on the in-game tvs, and an “alternative narrative”, the exact nature of which has yet to be determined.
In our review of Alan Wake 2, we said, “when the player might think things are going off the rails, Alan Wake 2 will remind them that the rails never existed”, and that will likely hold true for whatever is in store for this free update.
