Remedy has confirmed that its XBLA follow-up to Alan Wake, American Nightmare, will include a new mode called Fight till Dawn, snippets of which you can see in the extended trailer and new screens below.
It is, essentially, a solo Horde Mode, with players attempting to survive a full night of enemy attacks using Flare Guns, Uzis and Nail Guns, amongst others. Mixing things up a little are safe havens offering respite from the attacks, as well as unlockable weapons scattered around the landscape. Beyond this, because it’s an XBLA game, there are also leaderboards with which you can compare you and your friends’ performance. Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is out on XBLA in the “middle of Q1 2012.”
