Fight Till Dawn
We already know Alan Wake's American Nightmare is Remedy's attempt to include a little more, well, action in to the titular writer's overly-narrated adventure. Well, not content with beefing up Wake's story, Remedy have designed an entirely separate arcade mode dubbed 'Fight till Dawn', where you must survive waves of enemies powered by the darkness of the night until the sun rises.
Remedy describe Fight till Dawn as "relentlessly intensive", with a "deep arsenal" to choose from, with series stalwart the flare-gun joined by newcomers the nail-gun and "Remedy favorite" the Uzi. You'll clock up scores which will no doubt join an ever-growing leaderboard for bragging rights. Meanwhile, Remedy have dubbed the main story of American Nightmare, set within an early episode fictional TV show, Night Springs, which Wake wrote, as "exaggerated pulp action adventure". Let's hope they can do better this time around. [Eurogamer]
