The recent barrage of news regarding Alan Wake Remastered doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, as some more details have emerged regarding the overhaul of the 2010 game.
On the 7th of September this year, Creative Director of Remedy Entertainment, Sam Lake, announced that the development team was working on a remaster of the beloved 2010 game, Alan Wake. The Remaster will drop as soon as the fall of this year, and Epic Games will publish it. The remaster will feature a full next-gen experience, featuring newly rendered 4K visuals, alongside Sam Lake himself providing the director’s commentary on the game.
AS if all that wasn’t exciting enough, we now know how the game is going to look like. This comes thanks to a posting on Amazon UK, first discovered by user Wario64 on Twitter. The game has received a listing on the website that reveals many details about how the game will look.
The game has received a makeover, as shown in the pictures. When compared to the original 2010 game, the difference between the games looks like night and day. That is to be expected due to the time difference of 11 years between the game. Sam Lake said about the game-
“Alan Wake Remastered is the original experience you fell in love with all those years ago. We did not want to change that. But the visuals all around, including the character model of Alan Wake himself and the cinematics, have been updated and improved with some choice next-generation upgrades.“
Perhaps the most interesting thing to come out about Alan Wake Remastered is that it is currently available for pre-order at the price of £24.99 or half the price of a full-priced AAA game. It will also be available for a free upgrade for people who own a current-gen copy. That is an outrageously low amount of price to pay to experience a classic like Alan Wake in 4K, so if you were on the fence about getting it, you should be inclining towards getting the game.
Alan Wake Remastered is available to pre-order now at your regional online markets and local game stores. Expect it soon on the Epic Games Store, as well.
