Alan Wake Coming to PC in Early 2012by Craig Getting on December 14, 2011 3:02 PM EST
Today Remedy announced plans to finally bring their psychological thriller Alan Wake to PC via Steam early next year. The developer will also be including the game’s two pieces of DLC: The Signal and The Writer.
Released in 2010 for the Xbox 360, Alan Wake is a Stephen King-inspired tale about a writer whose wife goes missing in the Pacific Northwest. The game was announced in 2005 as a PC/Xbox 360 release, but in 2009 Remedy confirmed that they’d limited development to the 360.
Though he couldn’t discuss specifics like release date, Remedy Executive Vice President Aki Järvilehto told Rock Paper Shotgun that the PC version will feature Steamworks and promised that “the experience of running it on a high-end PC, with a ninja set-up, [is] a big difference.”
Remedy’s also been prepping another Alan Wake project, the Xbox Live Arcade spin-off Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which should release right around the PC version of the original. They’ve yet to confirm whether or not American Nightmare will make its way to the PC as well.
