Fortnite players now have the chance to play a 20-minute Alan Wake recap

Get Ready for Alan Wake 2 with Fortnite’s Alan Wake: Flashback

Exciting news for fans eagerly awaiting the release of Alan Wake 2 later this month! Epic Games has introduced a special opportunity for Fortnite players to catch up on the thrilling survival horror game. The interactive explainer, Alan Wake: Flashback, is now available to play and provides a comprehensive recap of the events in the horror series so far. This recap will ensure that you’re fully prepared to dive into the world of Alan Wake 2, coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on October 27.

It’s understandable if the details of Alan’s first adventure into the terrifying unknown are a bit fuzzy. After all, the game was initially released in 2010. Fortunately, Alan Wake: Flashback offers a reimagining of the original tale where Alan takes a work holiday with his wife, Alice, in the picturesque town of Bright Falls, located in the Pacific Northwest. Of course, the tranquility of the vacation is short-lived as Alan finds himself battling axe-wielding monsters in the dead of night.

In the past, Alan’s habit of monologuing often spoiled the element of surprise in the horror aspect. He would frequently announce the arrival of a terrifying monster or an eerie moment well in advance. While a slight heads up can be useful, it’s our hope that the Fortnite version strikes the right balance and delivers true horror.

To play Alan Wake: Flashback, simply log onto Fortnite on your PS5, Xbox Series X|S, or Epic Games store on PC. If you’re unable to locate the episode on the main menu, use the Island Code: 3426-5561-3374.
