Alan Wake’s Pulp Action Spin-off Shines Light on PC This Month


It took two years for Remedy Entertainment to port Xbox 360 thriller Alan Wake over to PC. Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the standalone pulp action spin-off adventure first released on Xbox Live Arcade in February, won’t make PC gamers wait nearly that long.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is scheduled for a PC launch of May 22nd, bringing with it “stunning high-resolution graphics and enhanced PC features.” It’ll be released digitally through Steam and, and at retailers in Europe courtesy of Nordic Games. Both sites are offering 10% off pre-order deals, in addition to discounts of 25% for existing owners of the original Alan Wake or customers who buy both games together. Alan Wake just so happens to be on sale at 50% off as Steam’s Midweek Madness deal, which, as of posting time, ends in just under 40 hours.
