Alan Wake 2 will be “the most beautiful salvation game ever”

Remedy has been developing games for years on its own game engine called Northlight. Sam Lake, Remedy’s creative director, also states that Alan Wake 2 sets a new standard for Remedy in terms of visual quality.

“Alan Wake 2 will be the best looking and most beautiful Remedy game ever,” Lake said in a sit-in interview with IGN. Given that Northlight is the engine that powers graphics-rich games like Control and Quantum Break, this is a bold and exciting claim.

IGN asked if the partnership between Remedy and Epic Games at Epic Games’ untitled Alan Wake 2 could develop a sequel to Alan Wake on Epic’s Unreal Engine 5. -Suitable for the experience Remedy is trying to create for the next Alan Wake game.

“”[Alan Wake 2] Located in North Light. Especially in this kind of experience, where atmosphere and style are more important than ever, I feel that I am familiar with Northlight so I can focus on certain things and move them forward. “

The Northlight engine was designed to drive Remedy Entertainment’s favorite storytelling elements during game development. This includes emphasis on cinematic realism, photorealistic characters, massive destruction and physics. Alongside Alan Wake 2, Northlight is being used in the next Crossfire X story campaign that Remedy is developing for Smilegate.

Alan Wake 2 was officially announced at The Game Awards as Remedy’s first survival horror game. And Lake says Remedy uses his creative freedom to design really scary games.
