Alan Wake is one of the classics of the Xbox 360 era. A must-play for any gamer who enjoys a rich story and an even greater atmosphere. We follow Alan, an author of bestselling crime fiction novels, who gets trapped inside his own book. The game is a third-person atmospheric action game. With a story straight out of a Stephen King novel. With plenty of paranormal action and tense thrills.
The publisher of the PC version of this remaster is Epic Games. And if history is something to go by, the game will have an exclusivity deal with the Epic store. Thus no Steam, GOG, or any other version for the PC, at least for the time being. This is all part of a deal Remedy made with Epic, who will publish two of their titles. First being an AAA multiplatform release, and another one being a smaller game set in the same universe.
Remedy Games’ track record is exceptional, with hits such as Max Payne, Alan Wake, and more recently Control. As a long-time fan of their products, I’m giddy with excitement. I for one would love to also see the day when Max Payne 1 receives the same treatment, as it is still one of the best shooters out there. But Alan Wake is a fine pick too. The graphics engines of today could really elevate the experience with this videogame. Because as anyone who played it would know, light and shadow play is a big part of the gameplay experience. And environmental lighting manipulation just happens to be one of the fields where graphics improved the most.
