Alan Wake finally comes to the PC

3 mins read

Alan Wake makes his long delayed debut on the personal computing platform with some bells and whistles that might make you want to play through the game all over again.

Very soon our PC friends can enjoy the gripping, intense storyline and kick-ass action as our troubled writer faces darkness with light as his only ally. (Well, okay, some guns, too.) It’s like something out of a nightmare – a small Washington town, a missing wife, a darkness that stalks the woods, and a strange horror novel that Wake can’t remember writing, but which seems to be coming true before his very eyes.

Now, this isn’t exactly the quick’n’dirty port that PC players are used to getting when a console game makes the transition so throw that thought out the window. Here’s what you’ll be digging into when the game releases across the Steam platform on February 16th:

The Key PC Version Enhancements
·         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.

So, better graphics (Remedy promises “You’ve never seen Alan Wake looking like this”) and 3D support. Not. Too. Shabby. The game will cost you $29.99 USD and actually includes all the DLC as well. There’s also a boxed copy for all of you who just have to have a physical copy for your shelf too- that one is just ‘coming soon’ at this point.
