Alan Wake Remastered lands on October 5, changes and features detailed

Alan Wake fans will finally be able to return to Bright Falls to experience the fresh coat of paint on October 5. Remedy Entertainment revealed the launch date of the recently announced remaster during the PlayStation Showcase earlier today, as well as some details about the project.

The studio confirmed the original 2010-released hit is simply being elevated to a new light in this remaster, not rewritten. While the gameplay will remain intact, the cutscenes, characters, environments, and other elements are all being hit with visual upgrades when bringing the experience to more modern platforms.

The project is based on the PC version of the game, not the original Xbox 360 build. Check out a comparison shot of the original and remaster below. Remedy has partnered with the D3T for this project, a studio that has previously worked with companies such as Sega, Playground Games, 2K, CD Projekt, and others.

The remaster's PC version will sport Nvidia DLSS, ultra-wide screen support (except for cutscenes), and unlocked frame rates. Here are the system requirements for PC players:

Minimum specs

  • CPU: i5-3340 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Equivalent. 2GB VRAM.
  • RAM: 8 GB or higher
  • OS: Win 10 64-bit

Recommended specs

  • CPU: i7-3770 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Equivalent. 4GB VRAM
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • OS: Win 10 64-bit

As previously revealed, the base game will be accompanied by the story expansions 'The Signal' and 'The Writer' in this remaster. There will also be a developer commentary track by the game’s writer and creative director Sam Lake.

On October 5, Alan Wake Remastered is hitting PC (via the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and for the first time, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
