Today Remedy Entertainment announced that the PC edition of thriller Alan Wake is only a couple weeks away. They've also revealed that you'll be able to purchase it for a fraction of the Xbox 360 version's original price.
Wake will debut on Steam on February 16th. Other digital stores will get it "soon afterwards." Boxed copies of the game, published by Nordic Games, are also in the works but undated as well.
The standard edition of Wake will cost $29.99. This includes both the base game and the two downloadable content packs released post-launch for the Xbox 360. A $34.99 Limited Collector's Edition is also mentioned but no word on its contents yet.
The PC Wake features higher resolution graphics and supports AMD and NVIDIA 3D. Additional configuration options, such as the ability to hide the HUD, were also included. However, Remedy didn't add mod tools or a save-anywhere system.
"We’ve done our best to do justice to the PC version and do things the way they should be done for PC. The PC version looks absolutely beautiful. We’re bringing the game to life in a whole new way,” says Markus Mäki, Remedy's CTO.
A couple weeks ago Remedy released system requirements for the game. They're not too terrible.
