Remedy's Alan Wake goes all the way back to the Xbox 360-era (here's our review from back in 2010), where it presented a cinematic supernatural tale with stylish Remedy action. That being using a flashlight like Luigi when he visits a haunted mansion. Fast forward to 2021, and we're getting a 4K remaster with Alan Wake Remastered.

And it's out October 5 for PC (via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One.

Alan Wake, a bestselling writer, comes to behind the wheel of a crashed car. It’s night. He is in a primordial forest outside the small town of Bright Falls, Washington. Wake has hit his head. He is missing a week. His photographer wife, Alice, is missing. The couple came to the idyllic Bright Falls to heal, a departure from the pressure cooker of their celebrity life in New York City. Wake hasn’t been able write in a long time. Their relationship has seen better days. Now Wake finds pages of a novel he seems to have written, even though he can’t remember writing it. The story is called “Departure”. It’s a horror story. He is the main character in it. In the story, Bright Falls is taken over by a Dark Presence. The story is coming true. Locals, possessed by supernatural darkness, stalk Wake in the forest. As his journey spirals deeper into the darkness of the night, Wake tries to hold on to the tattered remnants of his sanity, to find answers to the nightmarish mystery he faces. Using the light of his flashlight as a weapon, he is forced to fight for his life, and the life of Alice.

"Alan Wake Remastered is the graphically enhanced version of the original game first released in 2010," writes Sam Lake Creative Director at Remedy Entertainment. And yeah, his namesake should clue you in to how special this game is to Remedy's history. " Now, we are bringing you the complete Alan Wake experience, including the two story-expansions The Signal and The Writer, originally released as DLCs, with all-new 4K visuals, updated environments, cutscenes, and a brand-new making-of commentary where I take a trip down memory lane."

The addition of developer commentary is a very nice touch as that's a feature we haven't seen in a while. In terms of performance Remedy notes that on PS5 it will hit 4K 60fps (where it will do the same on Xbox Series X) with PS4 Pro offering 4K 30fps. The PS5 version will als support DualSense features like the adaptive triggers.
