Not much of Alan Wake was shown, however, the trailer begins with the character warning “whatever you do, stay in light”, which is a reference to the monsters Wake faced in his own game that were harmed by light. The trailer also ends with a shot of Wake’s face.

The AWE DLC pack will be released on August 27 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox One and PC. The expansion pack follows The Foundation, which launches in March for the PS5, and subsequently for the PC and Xbox One in June.
