Remedy Entertainment is not an ordinary video game developer. The Finnish studio has always been trying to provide something unique. As a result, they gave us many memorable releases such as Max Payne, Control, Quantum Break, and, of course, Alan Wake. Now we have a perfect opportunity to return to Bright Falls, thanks to the remastered version of 2010's action-adventure masterpiece.
Meet Alan Wake, a famous author suffering writer's block. In his search for inspiration, he travels to Brith Falls, a small idyllic Twin Peaks-like town. And just like the place from David Lynch's iconic TV series, hiding dark secrets beneath its pleasant surface.
Instead of writing his new novel, Alan must investigate his wife's mysterious disappearance and face the most fearsome enemy - darkness. Besides a great story written by Sam Lake, the game features unusual combat mechanics that prove that a charged flashlight can be equally powerful as a shotgun.
The new version offers improved graphics, thanks to which all characters and locations look much better and more realistic. It also supports a 4K resolution. It makes Alan Wake's story even more immersive and thrilling. If you already finished the game, you can play it again and listen to the brand new commentary recorded by its creators.
Alan Wake Remastered includes the base game and both story expansions: The Signal and The Writer. Consequently, you don't need to buy DLCs separately. Moreover, the remaster features all the great songs we know from the original game. It means that we can listen to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Dawid Bowie, or Poets of the Fall, whose music we can hear in almost every Remedy game. The only thing from the original game that we won't find in Alan Wake Remastered is the product placement that no one will be missing.
