Alan Wake Goes PC with First Image
It’s all over the internet, gamers everywhere are in a frenzy, why? Alan Wake is making his way onto the PC, why that’s such an exciting revolution in the world of videogames is a little baffling since the console (well, Xbox 360) version scored quite well (83 metascore) with critical acclaim, yet seemed to have gamers complaining using such phrases as, “This took 4 years to develop? Waste of time.”, so what will make the PC version better?
Well, it will be playable in full HD resolution that was lacking before and it will also be released with the downloadable content, The Signal and The Writer.
Alan Wake tells the story of a best-selling writer suffering from writer’s block. He goes on vacation to the small town of Bright Falls with his wife, Alice, to gain back his creative flow. Shortly upon arrival, Wake finds himself trapped in a nightmare when his wife mysteriously goes missing. He keeps finding pages of a manuscript he apparently wrote, but can’t remember writing. The manuscript is coming true. An involving psychological action thriller, Alan Wake raises the bar in storytelling and creating a suspenseful cinematic experience.
There’s no specific date yet, just early 2012. RockPaperShotgun managed to get an interview with the Executive Vice President at Remedy Entertainment, Aki Järvilehto.
