The lights are on
Remedy Entertainment revealed a few days back that its moody survival-horror game Alan Wake would be coming to PC via Steam next month. If you prefer physical copies of your games, take heart. Nordic Games has announced that it will be publishing the boxed version of the game.
Alan Wake on PC includes the complete game, as well as the add-ons "The Signal" and "The Writer," which were previously available as DLC on the XBLA release.
“It goes without saying that we are very happy and proud to work together with some of the greatest talents and artists of the games industry," says Lars Wingefors, CEO of Nordic Games GmbH. “We are really looking forward to the PC version of Alan Wake, especially as we are talking about a fantastic PC adaptation thereof, rather than a mere porting of the code. We will talk about this in more detail in the upcoming weeks,” he added.
As previously announced, PC players won't be forced to play the game with a gamepad; it also includes full keyboard and mouse support. That may come in handy when you need to shine your flashlight with pinpoint accuracy.
