In a newly released gameplay clip of Alan Wake 2 (exclusively on IGN as part of their month-long coverage of the game), Remedy provides a better look at the character Alex Casey, who bears an extreme likeness to one of Remedy’s previous characters Max Payne.
Casey is the protagonist in a series of gripping crime-thrillers written by Alan Wake. As Wake tries to escape the Dark Place, he has seemingly written Casey into existence. What immediately grabs the attention of long-time fans is the striking resemblance between Alex Casey and one of Remedy’s iconic characters, Max Payne. Both are portrayed by Sam Lake, Remedy’s Creative Director. From his sartorial choices to his gritty, world-weary demeanor and the raspy timbre of his voice, Casey exudes an unmistakable Max Payne aura. It’s a nostalgia trip that’s impossible to ignore. And one that has been teased by Remedy for years.
The gameplay clip offers a brief preview of what’s in store and continues to captivate fans, drawing them deeper into the intricate narrative of Remedy’s forthcoming game. We’ve embedded the clip below for your viewing pleasure!
