Alan Wake PC due in February, not using Games for Windows Live

22 Jan 2012 by John Robertson
Remedy has let it be known that the PC version of Alan Wake will be released "during February" and "will not" be using Games for Windows Live. Instead, the game "will be fully supporting the Steam platform". The developer has released a couple more interesting bits of information too, including the fact that no demo will be forthcoming. The minimum system specs are as follows: OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7
PROCESSOR: A dual core processor is required:AMD: Athlon X2 2.8GHz Intel: Core 2 Duo 2GHzMEMORY: 2 GB
HARD DRIVE: 8 GB
VIDEO CARD: DirectX 10 compatible or later with 512MB RAMAMD: ATI Radeon 3650, 4450, 5550, 6450 or higher (per series) NVIDIA: GeForce 8600GT, 9500GT, GT120, GT430, GT520 (per series)SOUND CARD: DirectX 9.0c compatible
INPUT: Mouse and keyboard, Xbox360 controller also supported Remedy adds that to run the game on the highest settings (assuming you aren't using an absurd resolution), you'll need a graphics card capable of getting around a 2,000 score on 3DMark. As previously mentioned, the two DLC packs - The Signal and The Writer - will be included with the PC release. Source: forum.alanwake.com
