Alan Wake makes his long-awaited appearance in Control for the upcoming AWE DLC arriving on August 27 for PlayStation 4. Control's second DLC, titled AWE, has been speculated to be a crossover with Remedy's previous title Alan Wake. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/08/06/control-awe-expansion-2-trailer-state-of-play-2020"] The mystery author was referenced multiple times in Control's supplementary collectibles, but he was briefly visible in Control's new AWE trailer. The trailer was short on details, but Control has been building out a mystery through post-launch content that could be coming to a head soon. Control is Remedy Entertainment's latest mystery adventure game starring Jesse Faden as she uncovers the mystery behind the Federal Bureau of Control and its headquarters The Oldest House. Alan Wake was the protagonist of Remedy's previous mystery adventure of the same name. Wake is a mystery novelist who discovers a supernatural takeover of a small town called Bright Falls.

Control was awarded IGN's Game of the Year 2019 thanks to its intriguing universe, creative combat, and compelling mystery.
