Alan Wake Officially Confirmed for PC

Just yesterday, we told you that some database-reading folks had found references to a PC version of Alan Wake in Steam binaries. Today, Remedy has confirmed that a PC version of the psychological thriller is on the way early next year.

The PC version of the game will include both The Signal and The Writer DLC releases. Obviously, we’re expecting to see it on Steam, but there’s no sign of it on Valve’s service yet.

You might recall that the XBox Live Arcade title, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is also releasing in this same time frame. I wonder how long it’ll take Remedy to get that one over to PC? I’d say big Steam numbers on the first game will hasten that process, don’t you think?

I have Alan Wake (Collectors Edition FTW!) and both its DLC’s on my Xbox 360. The game truly is a unique experience. It’s extremely fun, extremely annoyingly hard (at times) and extremely immersive.

You have to use light to stun enemies before killing them. Simply shooting them wont kill them. This makes a precarious position as the flashlight doesnt have infinite battery (it recharges slowly) and some batteries are spread across each level, but you still need to conserve. The same goes for ammo (its sparce).

So if you’re a gamer looking to try a truly unique shooter (3rd person), get this – you won’t be disappointed.
