Alan Wake & Control Story Recap

Alan Wake 2 Ending Explained


Before diving into the walkthrough, it’s worth noting at this point that Alan Wake 2 has a non-linear approach to its chapters. After completing the first 5 (Saga’s Return 1-2 and Alan’s Initiation 1-3), you’ll unlock swapping between both characters at will to progress the stories forward.

Furthermore, although the game will prompt you at cliffhanger intervals that it’s the “end of chapter” (complete with achievement pings), the next chapter doesn’t properly start until you leave that area and start the next.

With that in mind, we’ll be structuring the walkthrough below when the chapter actually ends, rather than when the achievement drops.
