Night Springs Expansion, Character Profile: The Waitress

In the lead-up to Control and Alan Wake 2, Remedy released a series of Character Profiles; a social media feature introducing the community to some of the names we'll meet during in their latest adventure. This week, the studio continued the tradition, looking back at the newly-launched Night Springs expansion.

Night Springs is the first of two planned paid expansion packs for Alan Wake 2. In the adventure, the player can explore three episodes of the fiction Twin Peak-style TV show, Night Springs, written by Alan Wake and hosted by Warlin Door. Naturally, for the first post, the studio looks at the first episode with The Waitress, the star of Number One Fan

The post reads, "It's not easy being both the protector of the town of Night Springs and working at Nite's Diner, the hottest spot in the neighborhood, but this Waitress makes it look almost effortless. There is only one thing she's more passionate about than mixing a cup of her special brew coffee, and that is America's Best-Selling Writer, his books, his limpid eyes and hickory tresses. Can she beat the odds to save him from his fate in... Night Springs?"

While the studio may have wrapped up the planned Alan Wake 2 dev streams for time being, we got a last-minute exciting addition to the schedule!

On Tuesday, Remedy's Community Manager, Julius Fondem, sat down with the brilliant Riho Kroll, the Lead UI/UX Designer on Alan Wake 2 to delve into the newly added Photo Mode. Riho is also credited as being one of the creatives behind the highly-anticipated feature and joined the livestream to share his insights on how he and the team approached the unique challenge.

During the interview, we hear how Riho's knowledge and passion for photography influenced the type of features the team focused on, and see the expert share his tricks and tips in-game. Check out the full recording below!


Similar to previous developer streams, the broadcast lasts for two hours and goes into depth about the addition. As always, the above video has been embedded with Twitch and YouTube chat, so you can follow the community discussions regardless of where you watch.

While there are no planned developer streams scheduled, Vida (Senior Community Manager) did tease a return later in the year during Summer Games Fest.

Remedy Reveals Alan Wake 2 Photo Mode Contest

To celebrate the recent launch of Alan Wake 2's highly-anticipated Photo Mode, Remedy has revealed their latest community competition which tasks fans with seeking out and taking the best virtual photograph.

For this event, the studio has a series of rather special prizes on offer with the first place winner taking home a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU Founders Edition.

Only one entry will be valid per person, but Remedy have confirmed that you can include up to four photos in a single entry. If you post again using the hashtag after, your latest submission will be taken as your official entry.

Official Remedy Store To Close After Three Years

In a last-minute announcement, this evening Remedy has revealed that they will be closing down their official store tomorrow. 

The heads-up was posted on Tuesday evening at 7pm EEST via the studio's Twitter channel. In the tweet, they write "It's all gone. Everything. Almost. Time to shop for the last time because after tomorrow (June 19th), the Remedy merch store will be closing down. Thank you so much to everyone who has bought our stuff!"

The Official Remedy Store originally launched in August 2021, coinciding with Control's second anniversary, initially offering twelve products from Control, Alan Wake and Death Rally. The site has grown over the years with a diverse product catalogue including winter hats, handcrafted candles, specialised coffee, homeware (including the high-in-demand Oh Deer Coffee mug), posters, and more. The news will be a disappointment to many hoping for a restock on some of the more fast-selling items such as the Bright Falls Blend and Oh Deer Diner Mugs. At present, there is no news regarding a replacement webstore.
