Alan Wake Makes His Return in the Next DLC for Control Later this Month

Alan Wake is back baby.

The next piece of add-on content for Remedy’s Control, which is titled AWE, has been known of for awhile, but now, we finally know when to expect the forthcoming expansion.

As part of today’s State of Play stream, Remedy let loose a new trailer for Control: AWE which finally sees the return of Alan Wake. Yes, Remedy’s latest IP is crossing over with one of the developer’s most beloved in this new episode. This crossover was teased last year when the post-launch roadmap for Control was detailed, but specifics of the collab weren’t really provided.

The base game of Control features a variety of different references to Wake himself, which seemed to confirm that the two games existed in the same universe. While it’s not really known how Wake might tie into Jesse Faden’s story, the add-on itself will be taking place after the events of The Foundation, which was the first piece of post-launch story content that released earlier in 2020.

As for when the DLC itself is arriving, it’ll be coming later this month on August 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
