Alan Wake’s debut on Xbox Live Arcade is more than you think, according to VGA boss and GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley, who’s said it’s “effectively” Alan Wake 2.

The digital title, rumoured to be subtitled Bright Falls, will debut at the Spike-hosted awards this weekend.

Keighley, speaking to Major Nelson on the subject of downloadable games, said it was an “ambitious” effort from Remedy.

“I’ve seen the game, seen the trailer we’re showing and even though it’s going to be a downloadable game, it’s not a small game,” said Keighley.

“It effectively is, I think, Alan Wake 2 when you really look at it and what they’re doing with that game. It’s really ambitious, beautiful technology and I think people are really going to be excited about it.”

The game will be, according to Remedy, “structured” as if it was a full retail release.
