Steam's Trading Cards Comes to Alan Wake

Last Updated: 5th July 20:45

Thanks to @RadiNightingale for the news! If you've bought Alan Wake via Steam you may be experiencing the game in a slightly different way from now on. Today the newly integrated trading card system was incorporated into the game. This was something that was particularly of interest over on the Remedy forums, and up until yesterday it was only considered a possibility.

The trading card system works like this...
When you play certain games on Steam (eg Don't Starve, Portal 2, etc) you're rewarded with cards. These cards can be crafted into badges which allows you to unlock some cool goodies such as profile badges, emoticons and discounts. Badges will also boost your XP, awarding you extra prizes as you level up.

You can also sell and buy trading cards and unlockables!

This background features a promotional image of Alan whom many of you who have purchased the tangible copy of the game will recognise from the cover.

Fans of that cuddly mammoth, Buck-Tooth Charlie, may be happy to hear that he's an unlockable background.  It's a screenshot of the Elderwood Visitor Centre with Charlie looking in from the right.

This background image is taken from Episode five. An interior shot of the church with the lights lit for Deerfest.
