Horror Hit Alan Wake 2 Is Getting a Retail PS5 Release Because You Wouldn't Shut Up About It 1

Alan Wake 2 was one of the best games of 2023, but one recurring complaint Remedy fans had was that it wasn’t available physically. The Finnish studio alleged at the time that a “large number” of players had already transitioned to digital storefronts like the PS Store, and while that’s certainly reflected by financial data from firms such as Sony, many fans still want to own retail versions of their favourites.

It’s perhaps not surprising, then, that the developer is finally plotting a Blu-ray run. Announced at Summer Game Fest, there’ll be a few options available for physical fans, with pre-orders opening later today, on 8th June. The Deluxe Edition will launch on 22nd October, and will cost $79.99. It’ll include the base game and a download code for Alan Wake Remastered, a bunch of in-game skins and cosmetics, and the Expansion Pass, which features new DLC Night Springs. (More on that shortly).

In addition, the Limited Collector’s Edition will be distributed by Limited Run Games, and will cost $199.99, with orders shipping in November. It’ll include all of the above content, contained within an exclusive box, an Angel Lamp replica, an Ocean View Hotel keychain and key, a Coffee World pin set, and an official artbook.

As mentioned above, new DLC Night Springs is due out later today, and features three characters from the Remedy Cinematic Universe, including a character based on Control’s Jesse Faden. As you should probably expect from the Max Payne maker, things in this add-on will get extremely meta, with each of the expansion’s three episodes running for roughly an hour apiece. We’ll have a full review as soon as possible, so look out for that.
