A bit like the promotional videos of a certain game set in the Far West, Alan Wake is given a special treatment today with this 4 minute video presenting us with the storyline and the different gameplay aspects of the game. In spite of the poor encoding quality on Microsoft's part, it should prove everyone that Remedy's title is indeed a technical marvel and clearly a very atmospheric game with incredible lighting effects. Microsoft also announced that the game will ship a bit sooner than originally expected as it will hit the shelves on May 11 in North America and May 14 in Europe. Make sure you're not out of batteries when it comes.
