Remedy Entertainment is starting its short week of work on the right foot and confirming rumors over the weekend that it's truly releasing a Remaster Allen Wake (and it's been a long time coming). Full launch details haven't been shared yet, but we know the game will be available for the holidays in time.
The developer is collaborating with Epic Games Publishing on the project, which means it will be available on a wide range of operating systems including PC, the Xbox series and the Xbox One family and will be the first time, now, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Over 11 years since its debut on Xbox 360). "We didn't want to change that," Lake said. But all the visuals, including the Wake character model and game videos, have been updated and improved with the next generation upgrade.
"This is for you. I hope you enjoy it, either again, like meeting an old friend, or for the first time." - Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy Entertainment.
This game tells the story of Alan Wake, an exciting storyteller, who is trying to discover the secret of his wife's disappearance on vacation. During all this time, the events of Wake's last book - which he does not remember writing - begin to take place in real life. Two additional "episodes" were made available as downloadable content, although there is no indication that they were reformatted.
In 2017, there seemed to be a licensing issue with the endgame soundtrack running on the digital storefront, but thankfully, Steam is back more than a year later.
Lake said Alan Wake Remastered will be available this fall.
