- Today Gamersmint shared some amazing new Alan Wake screenshots, which confirms the fact that this is going to be one of the finest titles to be releasing on Microsoft's XBox 360 this year!
The story will play out in an episodic format, with a television show-style presentation. Remedy has confirmed that Alan Wake is only the first season of a bigger story, opening the door for future sequels.
Light plays a significant role in gameplay and strategy. The enemies, called "the Taken" in the game, are sensitive to light, encouraging the player to take advantage of environmental light sources and placing significant emphasis on the flashlight as a primary weapon.
Players also have the ability to set traps that illuminate when triggered, either damaging or temporarily immobilizing an enemy. They are then destroyed and turned into batteries.
Finally, Alan Wake is slated for release on Microsoft's XBox 360 console on May 14, 2010 in Europe and on May 18, 2010 in North America.
