Alan Wake Remastered has had its release date confirmed, with Remedy Entertainment cementing the adventure in for an October launch.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the new version will include both The Signal and The Writer DLC chapters. It’ll also mark the first time the game has appeared on PlayStation consoles. If you’re unfamiliar, you play as author Alan Wake, who’s moved to the mysterious town of Bright Falls to shift some writer’s block.
Our titular hero wakes up on town outskirts, having been involved in a car crash with his photographer wife, Alice. She is nowhere to be seen, and all Wake can find is the pages of a mysterious book bearing his name but he has no memory of having written. As the pages start coming true, Alan will have to battle a mysterious Dark Presence taking over the town.
As well as the visual upgrades, we’re promised a new commentary track from Creative Director Sam Lake as revealed earlier this week. There’ll also be Dualsense features for the PlayStation 5. So yes, expect use of the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. The PlayStation blog also confirms Performance and Quality modes for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Alan Wake Remastered is set for a release date of October 5 2021. It’ll land on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
