Remedy Entertainment, the people behind cult classic Max Payne and Alan Wake have today announced their confirmed plans to self-publish Alan Wake’s upcoming PC transition. The former Xbox 360 exclusive was announced way back in 2005 yet only saw a release in 2010. Now, with Nordic Games handling the boxed retail version, Remedy will launch Alan Wake to Steam February 16 with a range of other digital distributing platforms making it available in the near future.
We’ve already heard of Remedy’s deal with the Origin platform, so we can be sure it’ll hit the service in due time.
The PC release has been a long time coming, and Remedy are going to do it right. The company has announced stereoscopic surround display compatability for both AMD and nVidia graphics cards. Meaning you’ll be able to experience Alan Wake in some crazy resolutions with the right kit. It’ll also put some quad core proccessors to use, have native Xbox 360 controller support and of course, offer tweakable graphics options.
Markus Mäki, Remedy CTO had this to say:
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.
Alan Wake releases February 15 for PCs via Steam.
