Remedy Release First Alan Wake 2 Patch, Shares Updates On Control 2 And Max Payne Remake

Alan Wake 2 was released last Friday by Remedy Entertainment. Over the weekend, the studio worked on fixing some of the issues identified by players. The studio released a patch for PS5 and PC over the weekend while Xbox players got another today. According to Remedy, the latest Xbox update brings “parity across PC, PS5, and Xbox versions”.

According to Remedy’s Alan Wake 2 patch note, the updates released for all the platforms include bug and localization fixes. However, the PC updates also introduced a “Significantly friendlier error message when third-party software stops the game from starting”.

It appears that most issues with Alan Wake are experienced in the Xbox Series. The update Remedy Entertainment released over the weekend for Xbox Series over the weekend “fixed multiple visual issues” and “multiple UI-related issues”.

There was also an issue on the Xbox Series where players would get stuck during interactions and would be unable to exit. The October 30th update fixed that too. Remedy Entertainment shared the patch updates on their X handle, promising to address other technical issues.

“Thank you for the incredible response to Alan Wake 2,” Remedy wrote on X. “We are looking at all of your feedback. We will be addressing a few technical issues we have noticed over the weekend as soon as we can and continue to update the game.”

Remedy also said they were “aware of the audio cutting off on Xbox” and promised to look into it too. Last week the studio confirmed that Alan Wake 2 will get two paid expansions. The first is expected to be available in Spring 2024. Alan Wake 2 is a brilliant cult classic that deserves all the accolades and a worthy sequel worth the wait.

“Control 2 continues in the proof-of-concept stage,” Virtala said. “The plans for this sequel are ambitious, and we have seen good progress both in design and in the game build. We will continue at this stage for the next few quarters. We focus on proving the identified key elements before moving to the next stage and scaling up the team.”

Control was released in 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One but was later ported to the current-gen consoles in 2021. It was so good that it was nominated for Game of the Year. The story revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) who are tasked with containing and studying occurrences that defy the laws of reality. There was news for Max Payne too.
