Alan Wake Remastered is out now, but how many chapters does it have?
October has rolled around, and so has the release of Alan Wake Remastered. The action-adventure game was first released for the Xbox 360 back in 2012 and received a lot of praise for its pacing and suspense. The game quickly became a fan favorite, leading to a remastered version launching Oct. 5, 2021.
Players control the titular Alan Wake, a thriller novelist uncovering the mystery behind his wife's disappearance. The game's structure is designed in a similar way to a television show, segmented into episodes (rather than chapters) which contain plot twists and cliffhangers that you'd come to expect from such a format. The remaster is the exact same game as before but with upgraded visuals, audio, and overall improved experience.
So, how many episodes does Alan Wake Remastered have?
How Many Chapters Are in Alan Wake Remastered?
Separated into episodes, rather than chapters, Alan Wake Remastered consists of six episodes plus two optional DLC episodes. Both DLC episodes are included in the remastered version of the game, capping the total to eight episodes.
Alan Wake's episodic formula not only makes for an interesting structure, but it also allows players to break up their gaming time. Setting aside a couple of hours to go through a chapter might work better for those with less free-time.
Alan Wake Remastered is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via the Epic Games Store. The remastered version marks the first time the game has been made available on PlayStation consoles.
