Alan Wake 2’s First Story Expansion, Night Springs, Gets 2024 Release Window

Alan Wake II‘s previously announced expansions, Night Springs and The Lakehouse, are coming into focus. Remedy confirmed to IGN that the first expansion, Night Springs, is scheduled for release in “late spring 2024,” but this timeframe is subject to change. The Lake House will be released at a later date.

Remedy also shared the official plot synopses for the expansions. In Night Springs, players will assume the roles of “several familiar characters” as they participate in “self-contained” episodes of the in-game TV show Night Springs.

In The Lake House, players will explore a “enigmatic facility” on the shores of Cauldron Lake. The facility is conducting “classified research,” and things take a turn for the worse.

Players can acquire the two expansions by purchasing Alan Wake II’s Expansion Pass through the $80 Deluxe Edition. It is currently unknown whether the two expansions will be available for individual purchase.

In addition to the two expansions, Alan Wake II will introduce a New Game+ mode post-launch and a photo mode.
