Alan Wake PC launch details

Remedy Entertainment Ltd today announced that popular Xbox 360 title Alan Wake will finally arrive on PCs via Steam on February 16th and then a short time afterwards on other digital download services.

There is good news for those who prefer popping down the shops to get their games, Remedy also let us know that the game will also be released in a boxed retail version of the game in the near future.

Steam pricing for the game has been confirmed as $29.99 for the basic game and all of downloadable content that the Xbox 360 version has had since launch, while a Limited Collectors Edition version will be priced at $34.99

The PC version of the game will see a number of improvements over the original Xbox 360 title. The main boost will be in the form of a much higher range of high definition resolutions being available, while it will also feature Stereoscopic 3D thanks to nVidia and have support for multiscreen options via AMD’s Eyefinity 3D 3-screen mode.

Markus Mäki, CTO at Remedy said, “We’ve done our best to do justice to the PC version and do things the way they should be done for PC. The PC version looks absolutely beautiful. We’re bringing the game to life in a whole new way,” says

Pleasingly there will also be support for mouse and keyboard controls rather than just gamepad play; they will feature alongside other tweaks such as FOV (Field of View) adjustments and an option to hide the in-game HUD.

A full list of PC enhancements can be seen below:

  • Experience Alan Wake’s Pacific Northwest in higher resolutions and higher fidelity than ever before
  • Refined and fully configurable mouse and keyboard support (or if you prefer to play with the Microsoft gamepad connected to your PC, you can do that too!)
  • A wide selection of customizable graphics settings and support for 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios
  • Multithreaded engine that takes advantage of quad core CPUs
  • Additional options our fans have sought after, such as field of view adjustment as well as “hide HUD”.
  • Works with AMD Eyefinity 3D 3-screen mode
  • Works with NVIDIA NVISION2 Stereoscopic 3D

Cool I will get this as soon as it is available on Steam. Unlike some I will show my support for the developers and buy now instead of waiting for it to go on sale for $9.99 less. I mean come on $29.99 is not a bad price at all and to show your support your going to wait for months or a year just to get it for $20.00.

SK[ said,]Fully enjoyed this on the xBox. My only issue though is its a little short.

Yeah quite a lot of people said it was a little on the short side.

Awesome news... this had made what turned out to be one of the ******* days of the week, and now it's all turned positive. I was gutted when this game came out only for the XBOX. I would like to see Heavy Rain come to the PC as well. Cannot wait for this to come on Steam as well.

Me too. I thought it was a bad move to make it a console exclusive title but I'm so glad it's finally being released for the PC. What's even better is the price. It'll cost $29.99 USD on Steam.

$30 for a game (with all DLC) actually ported to PC properly with 'improved fidelity' (that better mean increased texture resolution) and an FoV option? Not bad.

For people who dont have consoles, this is quite a good news.

Agreed! I'm looking forward to this myself!
