Alan Wake hits Steam today
It may have taken a while and many thought it had been cancelled but Alan Wake has finally stumbled out of the darkness and onto the PC.
Today sees Alan Wake launch on the PC via Steam complete with The Writer and The Signal premium Xbox DLC releases, the usual graphical and control refinements you'd all expect from a PC release including stereoscopic 3D support and the much-desired Hide HUD mode for added immersion.
Remedy CEO Mattias Myllyrinne said, "Since our roots are firmly placed in PC development, we're delighted to finally be able to bring Alan Wake to the PC. We've worked hard to reward those faithful PC players and did everything we could to make it worth the wait. I hope the fans agree with us, the PC version looks absolutely stunning."
Alan Wake is available in two flavours on Steam the regular edition at 29.99 USD and a limited edition at 34.99 USD which includes developer commentary videos, an illustrated PDF book written by Clay Steward and the game's official soundtrack in 320kbps MP3 format. Expect Alan Wake to arrive on other download platforms soon and a retail edition is also in the works.
