Alan Wake System Requirements Aren't Very Scary
Soon Remedy Entertainment will release a PC version of Alan Wake. This weekend the developer offered up minumum system requirements and, unlike the game, they will not make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
The PC Wake supports 3D as well. Remedy says that they've tested Nvision 3D in-house and that while it works well, it's very performance-heavy. No word yet on whether AMD HD3D works with the game.
A couple fan requests didn't make the cut. You won't have the ability to save anywhere; instead you'll be restricted to checkpoint saving like Xbox 360 gamers were. Furthermore, mod tools won't be included with the game.
"Unfortunately Remedy is not planning to release the mod tools. The tools are a lot more complex than they were with the Max Payne games, and are based on many 3rd party commercial tools like Autodesk 3d studio max. Additionally they have been integrated to work with our Perforce asset repository and other internal services, and removing and re-implementing these features would be a lot of work."
Remedy will release the game through Steam in February.
