Alan Wake 2 in October

The PlayStation.Blog has an update from Remedy Entertainment on Alan Wake 2, the long-awaited action/adventure sequel. The headline is the release date saying the game will come to PlayStation 5 on October 17th. This is Sony's blog, which probably explains why the PC and Xbox editions go unmentioned. But Epic Games Store and Xbox logos adorn the end of this new Gameplay Reveal Trailer. The post also discusses what to expect from the game and offers reassurances to players who never played the original:
Never played the first Alan Wake (or Alan Wake Remastered)? No need to worry, as players who may have missed out on the first game can easily dive into the sequel without any prior experience or knowledge of the game’s story. It was important for us to create an approachable experience for new players without forgetting our long-standing fans. Another key pillar for us was ensuring that we respect fundamental survival horror principles: make the gameplay challenging for experienced players yet easy to navigate for those who want to focus on enjoying the game’s rich, layered story.
