Alan Wake’s American Nightmare Is One Of Two Free Games Available Now Through Epic

Alan Wake's American Nightmare Epic Games Store

Remedy Entertainment may have brought forth some creepy vibes with the recent release of Control, but one can’t help but recall the developer’s well-known previous title, Alan Wake. The thrilling adventure followed the titular protagonist as he sheds light on a dark, small-town mystery, but the episodic title would also recieve a standalone follow-up dubbed ‘Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.’ Following the freebie release of Alan Wake back in July, American Nightmare has now been made available for free via the Epic Game Store.

Taking the Alan Wake story from the forests of Washington to a new Arizona setting, American Nightmare is described as “a thrilling new storyline” featuring the likes of Alan’s evil doppelganger as well as “hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations.” The standalone adventure also comes with a horde-style Arcade Mode, putting players against waves of dark-thriving enemies until the very break of sunrise.

Second on the docket is the cyberpunk horror game Observer, continuing a spooky theme befitting the current Halloween season. Also currently free on the Epic Games Store, Observer is one we’ve covered before, the game placing late actor Rutger Hauer on a Blade Runner-esque quest to track down and mind-hack dangerous criminals in the neon-lit streets of 2084. Of course, there’s much more to expect from a detective story such as this, especially as it comes from Bloober Team–the studio behind psychological horror title Layers of Fear.

Those interested in either Alan Wake’s American Nightmare or Observer can head over to the Epic Games Store, where players are able to freely download the two spine-chilling adventures from now until Thursday, October 24th. After that, a new collection of free games will make themselves available, next week bringing Portal-esque puzzle game Q.U.B.E.2 and the aforementioned horror title Layers of Fear to the Epic Game Store at no cost.
