Remedy Entertainment Ltd. and Nordic Games award Legacy Interactive the retail distribution rights for the boxed PC version of Remedy’s critically acclaimed Psychological Action Thriller “Alan Wake”. The retail version will begin shipping April 3.
Legacy Interactive and Nordic Games announced today the closing of a distribution deal for the PC boxed edition of Alan Wake in North America. Remedy Entertainment Ltd and Nordic Games join forces with Legacy Interactive as the distribution partner for the North American territories.
“We are thrilled to be bringing such an iconic title to North American retail.” said Steve Wall, Vice President of Legacy Interactive. “I have been a longtime fan of Remedy’s work. Max Payne was a true masterpiece and Alan Wake follows in its footsteps as a brilliant feat of storytelling and innovative gameplay.”
“Alan Wake is a great product and we are proud about being able to take it to the North American retail customers. In Legacy Interactive we have found a partner who will give the product the focus it deserves, and also ensure best possible market penetration for the PC retail versions,” commented Egil Strunke, Vice President at Nordic Games.
Apart from the original game, the PC version contains two pieces of downloadable content (The Signal and The Writer) and everything you’d expect from a proper boxed PC version and more. Players will experience Alan Wake’s Pacific Northwest with higher resolutions and even higher fidelity. Players will experience the interplay between light and darkness like never before. With plenty of graphical customization options, every player can get the most out of their rig. Other refinements include a fully configurable mouse and keyboard setup as well as Microsoft gamepad support. Sought-after options by fans such as field of view adjustments and “hide HUD” have also been included. Finally, the game supports multiple screens and stereoscopic 3D.
In Alan Wake, players assume the role of Alan Wake, a best-selling suspense author suffering from writer's block. Wake escapes to the small town of Bright Falls, only to experience the mysterious disappearance of his wife. Players will unravel the riveting plot through multilayered character interactions, unique problem-solving and intense combat against the darkest of enemies. In this nightmarish world, where the boundaries between reality and fiction become increasingly blurred and ambiguous, Wake must use a variety of weapons to survive, including his most powerful ally against the darkness - light itself.
On March 2nd, 2012 the wait was finally over for PC gamers who were able to get their hands on the retail PC version of Alan Wake in both Standard and Collector’s Edition formats, courtesy of Nordic Games. The retail Alan Wake PC version hit store shelves in the UK, Germany, Finland, Sweden and Denmark - to name just a few of the initial release locations.
“The Nordic Games release of Alan Wake on PC shows real attention to detail and a desire to provide PC gamers with an appealing package they will want to own,” said Nik Blower, sales and marketing director, Nordic Games. “The Standard Edition offers more than a usual PC release would, while the Collector’s Edition is stuffed with fantastic material.”
Alan Wake Collector’s Edition includes two Bonus Discs crammed with exclusive content. This includes The History Of Remedy, The Making Of Alan Wake, The Making Of A Thriller, the music video “War” by the “Poets of the Fall”, several trailers to the game, all in-game cinematics with storyboard concept art, the teaser trailer of "The Signal", the launch trailer of "The Signal". The launch trailer of "The Writer", as well as two more features “Building the technology” and “Building a Thriller”.
Also included is The Alan Wake Files; a 144-page publication extra with evidence on the mysterious incidents around Alan Wake and Bright Falls, compiled by the fictitious author Clay Steward.
The Standard and Collector’s Editions of Alan Wake both include the main game, with optional commentary provided by Remedy (Collector’s Edition only) and both DLCs – The Signal and The Writer – on disc one, while disc two hosts the official soundtrack, comprising 13 tracks.
Also in the box are six post cards featuring different scenes from the game, the manual, a double-sided poster and seven stickers with different scenes and characters from the game.
The retail versions of Alan Wake and Alan Wake Collector’s Edition are available to buy on PC (from March 2nd) priced £29.99 for the Standard Edition and £34.99 for the Collector’s Edition.
