    The engine has been revised and improved since the original Alan Wake. We have managed to get a lot of optimisations in and among other things the internal rendering resolution has been increased, as well as FXAA anti-aliasing has been added. Alan Wake himself has been completely remodelled in higher detail, and enemies use a completely new animation system. We also have lots of new details like a much cooler (well, in our opinion anyway) Taken effect.
