Alan Wake Story Refresher Now Available Through Fortnite

You can now get ready for Alan Wake 2 by playing Fortnite on just about any platform where Fortnite is available.

Leading up to the October 27 release date for Alan Wake 2, developer Remedy has worked with Epic Games to create a playable recap for the original Alan Wake. The 20-minute recap can be played through Fortnite, and serves as a refresher for the events of the original game.

The refresher, titled Alan Wake: Flashback, is a reimagining of the original Alan Wake, and was developed by Remedy, Spiral House and Zen Creative. Alan Wake: Flashback can be played on any platform where Fortnite is available, and can be accessed through its Island Code: 3426-5561-3374.

For players that might want a different way of remembering the original Alan Wake, creative director Sam Lake had released a video earlier this month recapping all events that take place in the franchise leading up to the start of Alan Wake 2. The recap covers Alan Wake, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and Control: AWE.

Alan Wake 2 is coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The game will feature two distinct protagonists throughout the story, and will be split almost evenly between both characters according to director Kyle Rowley.
