There are places in our world where fiction and dreams can come true.

11th May 2020
Win A Copy of Alan Wake Collector's Edition on Steam
[Celebrating Alan Wake's 10th Anniversary]

This year, we're celebrating Remedy Entertainment's twenty-fifth anniversary with regular features looking back at the studio's catalogue with each title or live-action series getting their own month throughout 2020. Naturally, as Alan Wake is celebrating its own tenth anniversary this month, it felt appropriate to dedicate May to the psychological action thriller! 

While it's been ten years since the launch, we've had new fans join the Remedy community through the releases of Quantum Break and Control, and so it felt like a good time for a giveaway! 

The Prize

The prize is the Alan Wake Collector's Edition (RRP £15.49) on Steam! With the Collector's Edition of the game, you will receive the full Alan Wake experience, complete with both DLC packs; The Signal and The Writer. You will also receive in-game developer commentary, Petri Alanko's brilliant soundtrack, and a PDF version of The Alan Wake Files

By owning Alan Wake on Steam, you can also unlock the free Bonus Material bundle which includes bonus videos (from early demos to "making of..." documentaries), artwork (including production photos and internal guidelines), two graphic novels (Night Springs and Psycho Thriller), the full Alan Wake Screenplay, and sheet music. 

The title can be played on Windows, but please check that your machine will be able to run the game before entering. You can see the system requirements HERE

Official Synopsis for Alan Wake:
When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.

Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.

With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake’s intense atmosphere, deep and multilayered story, and exceptionally tense combat sequences provide players with an entertaining and original gaming experience.

Enhanced for the PC
- Includes Alan Wake Special Episodes “The Signal” and “The Writer”

- Experience Alan Wake’s Pacific Northwest in higher resolutions and higher fidelity than the Xbox360 version.

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

- Lots of customizable graphics settings and support for 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios!

- Additional features our fans have sought after such as field of view adjustment as well as “hide HUD”.
