Weather effects will influence gameplay in Alan Wake, according to Remedy’s Oskari Häkkinen, speaking with Norwegian site

“Everything in the game can be influenced by the weather,” he said.

“If you are running the car conditions will be worse by heavy rain, than if the weather was good

“The weather is dynamic, since it will influence how you play the game. Lighting is very important… and this is a unique item that really has not been used in the game before on the way we do it.”

More on Alan Wake is expected at E3.
