Ok, so Alan Wake is closer than we realised.

We also have the Alan Wake System Requirements, so lets take a look...

They are telling us that they are still finalising their optimisations, so some details can still change 

Alan Wake Release date is February 2012. Thats really soon!

Alan Wake Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7 (see below for Windows XP)

CPU: AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz (A dual core processor is required)


GFX RAM: DirectX 10 compatible or later with 512MB RAM

GFX: AMD ATI Radeon 3650, 4450, 5550, 6450 or higher / NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT, 9500GT, GT120, GT430, GT520

HDD: 8 GB Free Disk Space

Audio: DirectX 9.0c compatible

OTHER: Mouse and keyboard, Xbox360 controller also supported


We are advised that it will be available on Steam and they also say "We have internally tested that the game works with NVISION 3D very nicely. It is fairly performance heavy though so a high end GPU such as the GeForce 580GTX and moderate graphics settings are recommended. We have not tested AMD HD3D but will aim to do so or get a 3rd party confirmation whether it works or not."

Big thanks to our buddy KOBE23 for keeping the gaming news flowing.
