Alan Wake on PC has finally gotten a firm release date, just two weeks from now. February 16th is the day you should buy some batteries for your flashlight, and it has a decent price of just $30. Remedy have been putting a nice amount of polish on Alan Wake for PC, where it includes not just improved graphics, but multiple monitor support, and 3D.


Remedy's CTO, Markus Mäki has said:

We've done our best to do justice to the PC version and do things the way they should be done for PC. The PC version looks absolutely beautiful. We're bringing the game to life in a whole new way.

What can you expect in the PC version? Check out this list:

- Experience Alan Wake's Pacific Northwest in higher resolutions and higher fidelity than ever before

- Refined and fully configurable mouse and keyboard support (or if you prefer to play with the Microsoft gamepad connected to your PC, you can do that too!)

- A wide selection of customizable graphics settings and support for 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios

- Multithreaded engine that takes advantage of quad core CPUs

- Additional options our fans have sought after, such as field of view adjustment as well as "hide HUD".

- Works with AMD Eyefinity 3D 3-screen mode

- Works with NVIDIA NVISION2 Stereoscopic 3D
