Alan Wake PC Dated, Screened

Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that Alan Wake will be released for the PC on February 16, 2012. It will include both DLC packs The Signal and The Writer, and will cost $29.99 on Steam & EA's Origin ($34.99 for the collector's edition). Some new screens and details can be found below.


New features:

- 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.

people who start playing this now, pay attention when ally wakey starts to dock on bright falls. the watter effect quality and the sense of depth is really well done for a game that doesn't even use water physics or water in any given time.

Also be prepared for repetitious environments, combat situations, enemies and gameplay. It'll all look nice tho. Wonder if the PC version will have better shadows? The dithering in the xbox version was awful.

Can't wait to see this incredible game on my 580. Easily my favorite game this generation judging from the consistent play I've logged into it. Gears, Uncharted 2 and 3, WoW, Halo all took a back seat to this game. Sadly I never have come back to Uncharted 3 yet. I lost interest with the 2nd one in the same way and took months to complete it but I always keep coming back to AW.

Yeah, that's cause Alan Wake on Nightmare is sweet! Getting new manuscript pages and tougher challenge with more running for the light. Uncharted, it's a blockbuster so it's a one-playthrough affair, while there's a lot more to dig in with Alan Wake's story. I kept on replaying episodes to figure the plot out like Zane, the clicker, and the 3 day time lapse.

It was a fairly boring game, the only thing good gong for it was the impressive lighting effects and wind effects it had. Other than that it was dull and a far cry from Max Payne greatness. I will admit I got some good laughs at how bad the facial animations were.

If it wasn't Sci-fi I would give it a try.

Dude, it's a romantic drama, not sci-fi at all.

AW easily has the most intense combat I can think of. Edge-of-your-seat kinda stuff, IMO. Incredible lighting/atmosphere, and creepy. I never got tired of the environs, personally. I mean, it's not like he's globe-trotting- he's on vacation in the North-east. The game-play mechanics are near perfect too...

Very atmospheric graphics and quite well done story, but the same gripe I had with Doom 3 - most fights start by enemies spawning from behind .. it gets pretty ridiculous.

Graphics of PC version are meeeh... just look how flat Alan looks in that 7th pic!

Port from X360 to PC. Must have in any case.

Graphics are "meeeh" because of the shitty Xbox-resolution textures. Still buying.. still think it will look+play awesome.

not really into horror games, having a difficult time getting through Dead Space 2 ATM, I will buy it for $10 during the winter steam sale

Northwest, State of Washington like Twin Peaks.

Obviously it will look sharp and screen tear should not be a problem. I wonder if the game is optimized well based on PC requirments.

Oops, lol. I always say that. I used to live in Washington state too! It's all the Port-ey stuff that makes me think North-east (that and he lived in New York... uh.. It was New York right? lol. Damn, gonna have to play again!)...

    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (27 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (42 minutes ago)
