Alan Wake was released in 2010 on the Xbox 360 and later on PC.
The game takes place in the fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington where the titular character is visiting on vacation with his wife, Alice.
Things take a turn for the worst as Alice goes missing and Alan must go up against a demonic entity hellbent on plunging the world into darkness.
Players must navigate dangerous environments and defend Alan, all the while working to discover the mysteries of Bright Falls.
Alan Wake was met with critical and acclaim upon release with many reviewers praising the game’s atmosphere and gameplay.

The game is also repeatedly teased in Remedy’s 2019 game, Control. It was also the main subject of one of the game’s expansion packs, AWE, released in 2020.
The remastered version will retain its original story and gameplay experience. However, it will feature updated visuals including character models and cinematics, and overall improved using next-generation upgrades.
Alan Wake Remastered will launch later this year. The game will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, PlayStation4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, and PC.
