Alan Wake Remastered Gameplay And Release Date Revealed (VIDEO)
Rumored for several months, Alan Wake Remastered was finally confirmed to be real earlier this week, with developer Remedy Entertainment announcing the title in an appropriately low-key fashion. Even with confirmed features like 4K resolution and the inclusion of all previous DLCs, no footage was included in the initial reveal, but it looks like we now know why. Remedy was saving the first footage for the PlayStation Showcase, as well as a release date for the upgraded adventure.
While the gameplay isn’t very lengthy, Alan Wake Remastered looks to have received a noticeable overhaul, including crisper visuals, updated character models, and enhanced environments as the game finally makes its grand debut for PlayStation consoles. In addition to showcasing the prettified detective story we all know and love, Sony also premiered an actual release date, confirming Alan Wake Remastered for a launch on October 5th. Check out the trailer below.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the story of Alan Wake is largely untouched, with the remaster largely centering on bringing the title’s quality to modern standards. In addition to various optimizations for each platform, Remedy’s Sam Lake confirmed fully “retouched” textures, sounds, and UI as well as unique utilization of the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers. Performance-wise, PS5 players will get access to a smooth 4K/60fps, PS4 Pro receives optional 4K/30fps and 1080p/60fps modes, and the standard PS4 is locked at 1080p/30fps.
“Many of the original developers of Alan Wake, myself included, were involved in the creation of this remaster. Above all, we wanted to preserve the identity and unique visual style of Alan Wake, while still elevating the graphics to meet modern players’ expectations.”
Alan Wake Remastered releases October 5th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
