Experience the first Alan Wake game in Fortnite by playing the Flashback UEFN map.

Alan Wake brings the mystery to Fortnite ahead of Alan Wake 2, which arrives on October 27. In addition to the recently announced Fortnitemares 2023 Alan Wake cosmetic set, Epic Games has unveiled the Alan Wake: Flashback Creative map.

This is everything you need to know about the Alan Wake x Fortnite collaboration, including the cosmetic set release date and Creative experience.

What is Alan Wake: Flashback?

Alan Wake: Flashback drops Fortnite players into a single-player mystery setting, where you must search for the titular character’s missing wife. The Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN) map draws elements from the popular game with a similar eerie setting.

This 25-minute experience will get you up to speed on the Alan Wake storyline ahead of Alan Wake 2.

“Based on the award-winning cinematic action-thriller, Alan Wake: Flashback reimagines Remedy Entertainment’s iconic story in Fortnite. Troubled author Alan Wake embarks on a desperate search for his missing wife, Alice. Following her mysterious disappearance from the Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written, but has no memory of.”
