Thursday, 11th February 2010 21:37 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Microsoft just confirmed Alan Wake for a May 18 launch on the US and May 21 in Europe.

The company, speaking at its X10 event in San Francisco, also confirmed that buyers who pre-order will receive a “Bright Falls Bonus Pack,” which includes exclusive content like Avatar gear, an Xbox LIVE theme, and a “making of” video.

The news marks the beginning of the end of a huge journey for developer Remedy: the game’s was announced in 2005.

The thriller follows author Alan on a writers block-unblocking vacation that goes badly wrong.

Gameplay centres around the use of a torch, and a mixing of dark and light.

A new trailer was released earlier today. Get that here.
