Just last week, Remedy and Epic announced that Alan Wake would soon make his debut in Fortnite. However, the excitement doesn’t end there. They’ve got one more surprise in store for us: Alan Wake: Flashback, a 30-minute playable recap of the first game, is now ready for immediate play within Fortnite!
Alan Wake Flashback is a collaboration between Remedy and Epic, as well as developers Spiral House and Zen Creative. A genius marketing move that capitalizes on the established partnership between Remedy and Epic, solidified through their publishing deal for Alan Wake 2. Notably, this experience is devoid of combat, yet it ingeniously incorporates Alan’s unique ability to transform words into tangible objects, harnessing his trusty flashlight. Leveraging elements from both the Fortnite universe and the rich assets of Alan Wake, this immersive encounter faithfully recreates environments that will resonate with fans.
For those like me, who’ve never been drawn to Fortnite, this intriguing crossover event might just change our minds. I’m genuinely curious to witness this fusion of worlds.
