Alan Wake 2 Can Now Be Streamed On GeForce Now

The Dark Presence is now in the cloud.

Story Highlights

  • Alan Wake 2 is the sequel to 2010’s Alan Wake, coming more than a decade after its prequel.
  • The game is playable on multiple platforms, including next-gen consoles, and PC.
  • Devs have launched Alan Wake 2 on Nvidia GeForce Now as well, a cloud gaming platform. 

Alan Wake 2 has managed to garner universal acclaim from fans and critics alike, coming across as a polished sequel to 2010’s Alan Wake, which itself is recognized as an iconic survival thriller to date. The devs have made an official announcement as of late that the game is now available to play on GeForce Now as well. This makes the title playable on five different platforms. 

For those not in the know, GeForce Now is a cloud gaming subscription service, that albeit comes with a fairly restricted free-to-play version as well. Depending on the tier you’re subscribed to, you can enjoy a selection of top-quality PC games on the cloud without having to worry about the hardware, because that’s where GeForce Now steps in and allows players access to powerful gaming rigs remotely. 

But do be informed that subscribing to GeForce Now doesn’t mean that you get to play paid games for free—you still have to purchase the title you want to play on the relevant platform. For starters, the service’s games catalog confirms that you need to have Alan Wake 2 purchased on the Epic Games Store to be able to link the accounts with each other and ensure seamless play.

Taking in the news, players are happy to have another option for playing the game, but others still keep the demand up for a physical release of Alan Wake 2, which is currently out of the picture. “No physical, no buy” is what seems to be trending on social platforms concerning the title at hand, given how Remedy has decided not to go forth with the idea in an attempt to keep costs down. 

  • PS: This is one of the reasons Alan Wake 2 costs $49.99 on PC and $59.99 on consoles, and not $69.99 which has been maintained as the norm for new AAA releases. 

In other news, I recently covered Alan Wake 2’s latest patch, titled v1.0.0.7 for the Xbox Series X|S, which has now brought all versions of the survival thriller to parity. Despite the consistent post-launch support, I’ve had a blast playing through the sequel, and it’s largely a bug-free experience, at least on the PlayStation 5. 

Alan Wake 2 was released on October 27, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. eXputer in its review rated the title 5/5, highlighting the fact that this is Remedy’s greatest game to date, and a successor to the first Alan Wake that justified the 13 years of wait. If you’re a new player, here are the best upgrades in the game to invest in first as you dive back into Bright Falls.
