Remedy’s Alan Wake Remastered is out today, and aside from sprucing up the original 2010 psychological thriller with a fresh coat of paint, it also throws in a couple of Easter eggs regarding the developer’s more recent efforts, namely Control.
As reported by Stevivor, one of the Easter eggs can be found in the Bright Falls Sheriff’s Station during Chapter 2: Taken. It’s located inside the office of Sarah Breaker, and concerns a letter addressed to Sheriff Breaker, although it’s for Sarah. Instead, it’s directed to her father, Frank.
In the original 2010 version of Alan Wake, it was discovered that Frank Breaker was a former police officer in New York City (where Wake lives with his wife, Alice), but he was never named as one of Bright Falls’ sheriffs. This indeed remains the case in the remastered version.
In Control, players find out that Frank Breaker was an agent of the Federal Bureau of Control, operating under the command of William Kirklund. The letter itself is from none other than Kirklund.
Alan Wake didn’t originally allow you to see the letter in detail, although the remaster now pans the camera so that it’s possible to see it and the writing on the envelope.
Alan Wake Remastered is out today for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. You can have a gander at our full review here.
