The Message is one of the Collectables found in Alan Wake 2. It is one of the pages of the Return manuscript and the first one found by Saga Anderson and Alex Casey.


The victim was one of their own. FBI Special Agent Robert Nightingale. Gone missing 13 years ago. Now he had suddenly turned up, only to be murdered in a brutal ritual on the day of their arrival.

And then there was the page. This page. The first page they had found. Not the last. The first step down into terrifying depths. Secret truths trembling beyond the threshold.

Reading the words, these words, felt like a message. Was a message. Someone knew they were here. What they were doing. Someone was playing a game with them. Leading them on. An invitation. How could they not accept? The sheer audacity of this impossible mystery presented to them. Even if they knew it would end up hurting them.


The page depicts the very moment Saga Anderson and Alex Casey find and read the very same page in Return 1: Invitation.
