Control developer, Remedy has officially revealed Alan Wake Remastered, a remaster of its 2010 cult classic which promises “all-new rendered 4K visuals” and its coming to modern-day platforms sometime this fall.
Remedy revealed the announcement of its upcoming remaster on The Sudden Stop, a community site devoted to Alan Wake and Remedy’s other released games. Alan Wake Remastered will be published by Epic Games and after 11 years, will be the first time PlayStation players will be able to play Remedy’s supernatural mystery game.
Remedy has revealed the Alan Wake Remastered will include the main game plus both DLC episodes, The Signal and The Writer. In addition, the remaster will also include commentary from writer and creative director, Sam Lake. Alan Wake’s spinoff game, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare doesn’t seem to be part of the remastered release.
“The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have been enhanced for a visual impact that matches its unnerving atmosphere,” Remedy said, describing the remaster.
Alan Wake was originally published by Microsoft as an Xbox 360 exclusive in May 2010. Players are put into the shoes of the titular, Alan Wake, a thriller novelist who is searching for his missing wife in the Pacific Northwest. After its release, the previously mentioned DLC episodes were released respectfully in July and October of that year. Alan Wake was later released on PC back in 2012.
Knowing a remastered version of Alan Wake is coming is not that too surprising as Wario64 recently revealed an October 5th listing of the game for PS4, PS5 and Xbox platforms. Remedy acquired the rights to Alan Wake from Microsoft back in 2019, a port of the game on modern platforms wasn’t a question of if, but when. Although, Remedy is putting resources into Alan Wake Remastered bringing it to 4K, which says they weren’t satisfied just releasing the original game. It’s good to see them going the extra mile for old and new Alan Wake players.
Alan Wake Remastered is set to release sometime this fall on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. An Alan Wake sequel is reportedly already in development.
