We have some fantastic news for PC gamers now, as in a perhaps surprising turn of events, developers Remedy Entertainment have confirmed that Alan Wake is to be re-released on PC. The game was originally released as an Xbox 360 exclusive in 2010 remember, to rave reviews as well.
Xbox 360 owners who played the game will be the first ones to say how good Alan Wake is, so it is definitely a good piece of news for PC owners. Xbox 360 owners in the meantime can look forward to the second major title in the new franchise, a game called Alan Wake’s American Nightmare which was announced at the recent 2011 VGAs.
It’s important to point out that this isn’t Alan Wake 2 though, rather an independent game which expands on the first title further. While a sequel is definitely coming at a later stage, Alan Wake fans can now look forward to American Nightmare releasing in the first quarter of 2012.
Will there be perhaps be an element of jealousy from PS3 owners reading this piece of news we wonder? Just like Left 4 Dead, PS3 users have seen another great game pass them by, and Alan Wake is the next title to ponder the thoughts of PS3 owners and contemplate ‘what if’?
It’s the same story for Xbox 360 owners in a way with Uncharted 3, that’s the way this industry operates these days. One additional incentive to pick up the PC version of Alan Wake if you haven’t played it, is the fact that the game will come bundled with the two pieces of DLC that became available for the Xbox 360 version – These are The Signal and The Writer respectively.
If you have played the Xbox 360 version, what are your memories of Alan Wake? Would you recommend this title to PC owners or not? If you’re a PS3 reading the news, do you somehow wish that Alan Wake came to the PlayStation 3?
