Cheats and Walkthroughs
Alan Wake's American Nightmare was officially revealed over the weekend, but the facts -- episodic release on Xbox Live Arcade -- weren't really anything that we hadn't already heard. More details are floating around today, thanks to a heft preview from Xbox World magazine (via CVG).
Wake's search for his evil doppelganger Mr. Scratch in American Nightmare unfolds around a central hub that players will return to frequently. There's apparently more of an action focus to the game as well. The light-based combat remains fundamentally the same, but new enemy tactics ought to mix things up, as will new weapons like the darkness-piercing crossbow and a variety of more garden variety automatic weapons.
This shift toward a more action-oriented gameplay experience is a big source of the inspiration behind the game's new Fight 'Til Dawn mode, Remedy reveals. All we know for now is that it's a wave-based survival mode. No, that's not a lot. Expect to hear more soon though, what with the game's planned early 2012 release.
