Original Alan Wake coming to PC

Nordic Games is bringing Remedy’s psychological action thriller Alan Wake to PC next month. The game will be getting a boxed retail release and includes DLCs The Signal and The Writer.

“It goes without saying that we are very happy and proud to work together with some of the greatest talents and artists of the games industry”, commented Lars Wingefors, CEO of Nordic Games GmbH. “We are really looking forward to the PC version of Alan Wake, especially as we are talking about a fantastic PC adaptation thereof, rather than a mere porting of the code. We will talk about this in more detail in the upcoming weeks” he added.

“We’re very excited that we have the opportunity to bring the PC version of Alan Wake to retail and the fans out there.” said Matias Myllyrinne, CEO of Remedy Entertainment. “Working closely with Nordic Games we can deliver an amazing experience to PC gamers.”

Alan Wake was released to universally positive reviews in the press and has a Metacritic score of 83 for those who like cold, hard numbers. We thought it deserved close to top marks in our review back in May 2010.

With the promise of this being a PC adaptation rather than a simple port of the original code, this could be one to watch if you missed it the first time on Xbox 360. Look for it in shops and on e-shelves this February.
