Remedy Entertainment has announced that Alan Wake is finally available for PC through Steam, Valve’s digital distribution platform.
Remedy is also working with Nordic Games to bring the PC version of Alan Wake to retail shortly. The game has been revamped for the PC with high-resolution graphics and enhanced PC features. The normal edition is set at $29.99 and the limited collector’s edition at $34.99.
The PC version includes the original game along with the two pieces of downloadable content (The Signal and The Writer). Players will experience Alan Wake’s Pacific Northwest with higher resolutions and higher fidelity. Other refinements include a fully configurable mouse and keyboard setup as well as Microsoft gamepad support. Fan sought-after options such as field of view adjustments and “hide HUD” have also been included, as well as support for multiple screens and stereoscopic 3D.
“Since our roots are firmly placed in PC development, we’re delighted to finally be able to bring Alan Wake to the PC” says Matias Myllyrinne, CEO at Remedy. “We’ve worked hard to reward those faithful PC players and did everything we could to make it worth the wait. I hope the fans agree with us, the PC version looks absolutely stunning.”
Alan Wake on PC is available now for PC via Steam. An Xbox 360 version was released in May 2010.
