Today, Remedy Entertainment has released their cult classic Xbox 360 hit Alan Wake on Steam, just in time for interested players to get a good background for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which releases for the Xbox Live Arcade next week.
The digital download is more than just the same release on a new platform. The new addition has added high-resolution graphics and enhanced PC features. If that doesn’t convince you, they’re offering the two DLCs released after the original Alan Wake on the 360, entitled The Writer and The Signal, for free until February 23rd. After that, they’ll only be a part of the collector’s edition, which will run you $34.99, rather than the $29.99 for the basic edition. I only played the Xbox version myself a few weeks ago, and I can assure you it’s a great game, especially in terms of the gripping story. Alan Wake is a writer of horror/mystery novels, who goes on a vacation to get over a bad case of writer’s block, only to find himself trapped in the midst of one of his stories. If you’re in the mood for something that’s going to put you through hell emotionally (in the best way possible) while being impossible to put down, I urge you to give Alan Wake a try.
