Alan Wake up early in Europe

Early riser

Originally scheduled for a May 21st release in Europe, psychological survival-horror adventure Alan Wake has been moved up a week.

It's rare when a game comes out earlier than expected, but you can't complain when it happens as in the case of oft-delayed Alan Wake. Publisher Microsoft made the announcement today, confirming a new May 14 ship date for the game.

Alan Wake puts you in the mind of the titular writer who ventures to a cabin in the middle of nowhere to clear his head for a new project. What ensues is a nightmarish manifestation of his imagination.

Alan Wake will be available exclusively for Xbox 360 on May 14.
