Alan Wake is coming home!

Launch Details for the PC Version of the Critically Acclaimed Psychological Action Thriller “Alan Wake” 


HELSINKI; FINLAND (February 2nd 2012)- That’s right folks. We’ve obtained the PC publishing rights, and we’re putting them to good use – Remedy Entertainment Ltd. is proud to announce that Alan Wake will finally be available on PCs through Steam on February 16th and soon afterwards through other popular digital channels. Additionally, a boxed retail version of the game is coming soon. Steam pricing is confirmed as follows: $29.99 (game + DLCs) and $34.99 (LCE).

Alan Wake is a highly anticipated title among PC gamers and it’s finally coming home – sorry for the wait! Boasting 3 BAFTA nominations and named Game of the Year by TIME Magazine, Alan Wake combines inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock, Twin Peaks and Lost – but you probably already know all that if you’ve been paying attention.  It’s a modern cult classic, praised by critics and fans alike as one of those game experiences that brings something unique, engaging to the table. We’re not just making that up, either:

  • ”Great entertainment … a tough game to put down once you’ve started” – Oh, well, thanks Mr. IGN!
  • “Redefines interactive storytelling” – Hey, we appreciate it, Brian Crecente.
  • Alan Wake is a brilliant piece of storytelling and one that is going to stand out as an example of single-player gaming done right.” – Aww shucks,we love you too Worthplaying.

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.

PC gamers will face the darkness in stunning high-resolution graphics, refined and enhanced PC features and support for stereoscopic 3D and multiscreen.  “We’ve done our best to do justice to the PC version and do things the way they should be done for PC. The PC version looks absolutely beautiful. We’re bringing the game to life in a whole new way,” says Markus Mäki, CTO at Remedy.”

With our history of PC titles, such as Max Payne, Max Payne 2 and Death Rally, Remedy has always wanted to bring a PC version of Alan Wake to the gamers’ fingertips. Now we can! We’re glad to be able to self-publish the title on Steam and work with Nordic Games to bring Wake to retail.

We’re very proud of what we’ve done so far with Wake – but for gamers who’ve always wanted the “every setting maxed out” experience, the modern PC hardware takes Alan Wake to new heights… and we bring the high definition goods. Believe it: You’ve never seen Alan Wake looking like this.

Can’t get enough Alan Wake? Don’t forget that the standalone spin off adventure, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, is coming to Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Arcade on February 22 for 1200 MS Points.

About Alan Wake

In this story-driven and intense Psychological Action Thriller, players assume the role of Alan Wake, a best-selling suspense author suffering from writer’s block, who escapes to a small town only to experience the mysterious disappearance of his wife. Set in the seemingly idyllic town of Bright Falls, Washington, Alan Wake draws players into an intense, cinematic world that enables them to explore the hyper-realistic and interactive environments. Alan Wake is structured in an episodic format, much like a thriller TV series, with a deeply engaging and suspenseful storyline unveiling plot twists and profound character revelations in nearly every episode.

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, Alan Wake must use a variety of weapons to survive, including his most powerful ally against the darkness – light itself.

  4. i am glad to hear that alan wake is coming to the pc remedy. i think you did an amazing job with this game. i own all 3 consoles but i almost never play games on the 360 since i dont like them . the only game i enjoyed on the 360 was alan wake and i am not kidding … what saddens me though is two things

    first are we going to see a true sequel to alan wake ? and hell even include some sandbox elements ? the first one wasnt sandbox but it could easily be a sandbox game with the huge world.. i know you said in the past that the game was changed to linear for action purposes but still a seperate free roaming mode would extend the games life a lot..

    now the second thing i did not like was the fact that you forget us ps3 gamers..not only did we did not get the first game but now we are not getting the dlc one which looks awesome ….
    whats up with that?

    i hope you read my badly written post and answer me if possible of course… keep up the good work!

    an alan wake fan

  5. excuse me i meant the downloadable seperate game not dlc one.sorry for confusing any users

    While I’m disappointed it won’t support Live, I’m still excited for it to come to PC – because mebbe I can get someone to make a mod with me (The Hitchhiker) as the star!

  7. Finallyyyyyyy…………
    I’ve been waiting for this very moment for so long now! When I first came to know that my favorite band Poets Of The Fall has sang in this game like they did before in Max Payne 2, I was so obsessed with this marvelous game! Unfortunately I am a PC gamer, but Remedy hasn’t let me down…!
    Waiting for the American Nightmare to come home too! :D

  8. tawtirea

    What about pc version in Russia ?
    and it will on Steam or discs ?

  9. Zeddie

    Hmm, I was wondering whether or not you’ve done anything to the mouth movement during dialogue..? Not that it matters too much, but it would sure be a big ++

  10. Levi

    I’d just like to give a huge thank you for adding field of view adjustability. In the age of console ports which nearly all of them don’t give you that option, adding it in just made this an instant buy for me.
