Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Alan Wake
Alan Wake has finally made its way to PC. After years of previews and a year-plus of coverage for the Xbox 360 version, Remedy’s psychological action thriller has launched for PC on Steam. A retail version, from Nordic Games, will be hitting store shelves “shortly.” The download version is $29.99 and features both available DLC packs, The Signal and The Writer, as well as support for multiple monitors and stereoscopic 3D. There are also multiple configurable control schemes and options to both hide the HUD and adjust the field of view.
Remedy has announced that they will be launching Alan Wake, their appropriately dubbed psychological action thriller, later this month on Steam. On February 16, PC gamers will get to step into the shoes of one Mr. A. Wake as they make their way through the town of Bright Falls in a quest to find their missing love and unravel a reality-warping mystery. The $29.99 release not only includes the original game but all of the DLC available for the 360 version (a Limited Collector’s Edition will also be available for $34.99). The PC version will support higher resolutions, multiple control schemes, and both AMD Eyefinity 3D 3-screen mode and Nvidia Nvision Sterescopic 3D.
Remedy Games’ excellent psychological action thriller Alan Wake will be hitting store shelves for the PC, courtesy of Nordic Games. The boxed edition will include both of the DLC releases currently available on Live Marketplace for the 360 version, The Signal and The Writer. Although a release date and price weren’t announced, Noridc noted that they will be passing along the official word shortly.
Remedy’s Alan Wake Live-exclusive spinoff, American Nightmare, will include a new arcade mode dubbed Fight till Dawn. The studio announced that the new mode will pit Wake against waves of enemies as he attempts to survive the night by tracking down safe havens and weapons to stave off chainsaw- and axe-wielding maniacs. Leaderboard support was also announced, allowing gamers to compare their survival efforts against fellow embattled novelists.
Remedy is returning to the world of Wake next year with Alan Wake’s American Nightmare for Xbox Live Arcade. The standalone spin-off will pit Wake against his evil double, Mr. Scratch, as the latter sets his sites on Wake’s wife, the ever-imperiled Alice.
