PC gamers, here is something special for you. Remedy has just released the FAQ for Alan Wake PC and get ready everyone because the game will hit Steam this February. Yeap, Remedy has spilled the beans about its release date, as we previously knew that the game would hit the PC the first quarter of 2012. Moreover, Remedy revealed that the game is compatible with Nvidia’s 3D Vision and that they are doing their best to support Windows XP. This means that the game will run in DX9, but will require a DX10/11 card for its additional raw power.
It is also revealed that the game won’t come to the Mac, the game’s DLC will be available on Steam, and that both The Signal and The Writer DLCs are included in all copies of the game. The game is developed by both Remedy and Nitro Games, who have previous and recent experience of releasing games on Steam. Steam achievements and Steam Cloud will also be available.
Players will be able to adjust resolution, run in full screen or windowed and change numerous graphics quality settings such as anti-aliasing, FXAA, shadow quality, and draw distance. And as we reported earlier, they will be able to completely turn off the HUD.
Unfortunately, no mod tools or demo will be released.
Last but not least, the new rumored minimum requirements are the following ones:
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7 (see below for Windows XP) PROCESSOR: A dual core processor is required: AMD: Athlon X2 2.8GHz Intel: Core 2 Duo 2GHz MEMORY: 2 GB HARD DRIVE: 8 GB VIDEO CARD: DirectX 10 compatible or later with 512MB RAM AMD: ATI Radeon 3650, 4450, 5550, 6450 or higher (per series) NVIDIA: GeForce 8600GT, 9500GT, GT120, GT430, GT520 (per series) SOUND CARD: DirectX 9.0c compatible INPUT: Mouse and keyboard, Xbox360 controller also supported
