Alan Wake PC launching on February 16, gets priced

Thursday, 2nd February 2012 15:31 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Remedy’s just announced it’ll bring Alan Wake to PC, nearly seven years after it was first announced, on February 16.

“We’ve done our best to do justice to the PC version and do things the way they should be done for PC,” said studio CTO Markus Maki.

“The PC version looks absolutely beautiful. We’re bringing the game to life in a whole new way.”

The standard edition of the game, which will also include XBL DLC The Signal and The Writer, will cost $29.99 on Steam, with the Collector’s Edition costing $34.99.

A boxed version is on its way from Nordic Games, as previously announced. As well as Steam, the title will also be on EA’s Origin, which was announced this afternoon.

Wake PC will also come with extra additional features over its 360 brethren, which launched in May 2010, including multi-screen support and NVIDIA 3D support.

The launch will come a week before the release of XBLA spin-off American Nightmare, dropping a week later on February 22.

    Well I should hope so seeing as the 360 version ran at 960×540.

    I’ll likely be giving this a look. Their reasons for not releasing on the PC originally were absolutely ridiculous – if they’d said that they had, via contract, whored themselves out to Microsoft exclusively then I could have had more respect for those pimps.

    Still, they do have a good game, and I won’t begrudge them wanting to make money. I suspect though that with all the other things heading this way that I may just wait for a sale.
