Alan Wake, one of the Xbox 360’s last great exclusives is exclusive no more; the narrative-heavy psychological survival horror is finally headed to the PC, after skipping the platform on the game’s console-release in 2010. It’ll be getting new features that elevate beyond its console counterpart, like support for stereoscopic 3D and multi-screen setups, and will also be more PC-0centric in its interface and controls.

It’s hitting steam on February 16th, and other “popular” digital distribution channels like EA’s origin a little afterwards – but it might be worth holding out for the retail release.

PC gamers till buy boxed retail games right? Right? Here’s the extra stuff you’ll get if you can wait…

According to Eurogamer, The boxed Standard Edition gets you:

  • Premium packaging:
  • Disc 1: Main game plus both DLCs – "The Signal" and "The Writer".
  • Disc 2: OST of the game including 13 Tracks (Audio-CD).
  • 6 Post cards with different pictures/scenes from the game.
  • Manual.
  • 1 poster (printed on both sides).
  • 7 stickers with different pictures/scenes/characters from the game.

While the Collector’s Edition will net you:

  • Premium packaging.
  • Disc 1: Main game plus both DLCs "The Signal" and "The Writer"; Additionally, the main game of the LCE contains audio commentary and background information by Remedy, which can be switched on in addition to the game.
  • Disc 2: OST of the game including 13 Tracks (Audio-CD).
  • Disc 3: Bonus Disc: History of Remedy, Making of "Alan Wake", Making of a thriller, music videos by the "Old gods of Asgard", several trailers to the game, Storyboard (witch concept art) as a movie clip.
  • The "Alan Wake Files"; 144 pages with evidence on the mysterious incidents around Alan Wake and Bright Falls, compiled by the fictitious author Clay Steward (same print format as the game manual).
  • 6 Post cards with different pictures/scenes from the game.
  • Manual.
  • 1 poster (printed on both sides).
  • 7 stickers with different pictures/scenes/characters from the game.

I heartily recommend the CE; the book that comes with it “The Alan Wake Files” really adds to the game’s creepy atmosphere. Retail copies will be available on March 2.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
