PC gamers who are getting their knickers in a twist over the upcoming release of Alan Wake will be pleased to know that there will be a collectors edition that features, well, not that much extra compared to the standard edition, but they’re charging an extra £5, so is it worth it?
“Both the Standard and Collector’s versions of Alan Wake on PC offer something that gamers have never had the opportunity to own before and we’re delighted to be in a position to be releasing Alan Wake in all its glory,” said Nik Blower, Sales and Marketing Director, Nordic Games. “It’s great to be able to offer real value for money for PC gamers who buy a physical copy of Alan Wake.”
Now if we compare the standard edition to the collectors…
Alan Wake Collector’s Edition will include a Bonus Disc crammed with exclusive content. This includes The History Of Remedy, The Making Of Alan Wake, The Making Of A Thriller, music videos by the Old Gods Of Asgard, several trailers to the game and Storyboard (witch concept art) as a movie clip.
Also included is The Alan Wake Files; a 144-page book with evidence on the mysterious incidents around Alan Wake and Bright Falls, compiled by the fictitious author Clay Steward.
An extra disk and a book. That hardly screams collectors edition, but the standard edition will retail for £29.99 and the collector’s edition for £34.99.
