Alan Wake Remastered was officially announced two days ago by Remedy Entertainment, and the game now has an October 5, 2021 release date on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles. The remaster will include the main game and its two story expansions ‘The Signal’ and ‘The Writer’, with improved graphics for modern platforms.
"The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have all been enhanced for a visual impact that matches its unnerving atmosphere. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliff hangers and jaw-dropping, intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness that lies ahead,” the Finnish developer wrote today.
