Over a decade after the original release, former Xbox exclusive psychological thriller Alan Wake is finally making its way to PlayStation consoles as Alan Wake Remastered. For existing fans, this is an opportunity to soak in the nostalgia and revisit a beloved title from yesteryear, now looking better...
You read that right
Here’s a crazy crossover event that we didn’t expect to see today: a recap of Remedy’s cult horror Alan Wake is available now in Fortnite. Yes, you read that correctly: Alan Wake Flashback is an interactive experience made using the Unreal Editor which will allow fans to familiarise themselves with the fiction of the first...
Plus or minus?
July 2023's PS Plus Essential games have been officially revealed, and we reckon it's another solid month for the subscription service. As per usual, three titles are up for grabs across PS5 and PS4. We've got Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Alan Wake Remastered, and Endling: Extinction is Forever. Obviously something like Call of...
The original Alan Wake opens with a killer line that directly references master of horror Stephen King, who, as it turns, sold developer Remedy the rights for a song. In his schlocky, iconic and uniquely Alan Wake way, the game begins with the self-aggrandising writer (aren't we all?) monologuing as images of scenic (and fictional) Bright...
Play it again, Sam
If there’s one thing to always look forward to at the end of the year, it’s lists. As sure a thing as death and taxes, countdown lists may just be one of the most fun inevitabilities out there. The one offer this time is a glimpse at some of the best PlayStation music we heard in 2021. While it’s impossible to touch upon...
Our individual Game of the Year articles allow our lovely team of writers to share their own personal PS5 and PS4 picks for 2021. Today, it's the turn of reviewer Graham Banas. 5.

Novelist just one week away
Xbox 360 classic Alan Wake is exactly one week away from making its debut on PlayStation systems with a remastered version, and courtesy of IGN, we can now take a look at what the updated re-release looks like when running on current-gen hardware. Seven minutes of 4K gameplay are embedded above, and you needn't worry...
Grab your torches
Alan Wake Remastered was confirmed by Remedy Entertainment a little earlier this week, much to the delight of fans. However, it fell to Sony, during its PlayStation Showcase event, to debut the first trailer for the game. Coming to Sony's platforms for the first time, Alan Wake Remastered brings back the beloved title with updated...
"The original experience you fell in love with"
Following online retail listings this past weekend, developer Remedy has confirmed Alan Wake Remastered is indeed a thing and will launch for PlayStation 5 and PS4 this fall. Writing on an Alan Wake fansite, Sam Lake said the remaster "is the original experience you fell in love with all those years...
Alan Wake is finally heading to PlayStation consoles next month in a remastered package if multiple online listings from Taiwanese retailers are to be believed. Alan Wake Remastered will launch for both PS5 and PS4 on 5th October 2021, and supremely reliable insider ZhugeEX has confirmed the release "will be announced next week"...
In this award-winning cinematic action-thriller, troubled author Alan Wake embarks on a desperate search for his missing wife, Alice. Following her mysterious disappearance from the Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written, but he has no memory of.
Wake is soon forced to question his sanity, as page by page, the story comes true before his eyes: a hostile presence of supernatural darkness is taking over everyone it finds, turning them against him. He has no choice but to confront the forces of darkness armed only with his flashlight, a handgun and what remains of his shredded mind. His nightmarish journey to find answers to the mind-bending mystery he faces will lead him into the terrifying depths of the night.
Alan Wake Remastered offers the complete experience, with the main game and its two story expansions - The Signal and The Writer - in stunning new 4K visuals. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliff hangers, and intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness. The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and the majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have been enhanced for an experience that delivers as much on its visual impact as its unnerving atmosphere.
