The second and final DLC chapter for Alan Wake, The Writer sees Alan continue his dark and mysterious journey through his own memories and dreams, people and places from his past coming back to haunt him and turn him against life and all that he stands for. The only thing that keeps him going is his own writing, and as you play through the new chapter, you'll discover words and letters that can be highlighted by your torch, which bend and change the landscape as you move through his own twisted mind. Will you survive long enough to break free?

You'll also revisit old locations of Bright Falls, as seen in Season One, in a twisted and darker light, with new obstacles and enemies awaiting to take you down as you complete the story of Alan Wake, one way or another.
