Sam Lake, creative director of Remedy Entertainment, has infused his impressive writing chops into all of his games, all of which are imbued with a filmic quality.


To see who is bringing his latest game to life, we present to you the Alan Wake 2 cast, with all the voice actors and how you know them.

Less believable were the Alan Wake 2 PC requirements which sent gamers into a frenzy, baulking at the high point-of-entry. Since the game has come to pass, however, things weren’t as desperate as they once seemed.

Not to entirely do away with controversy, Alan Wake 2 is all-digital, with the potential for a physical release all but certain.
