If you’re looking forward to playing Alan Wake Remastered on PC then you probably want to know whether or not your PC can handle the game. Alan Wake Remastered boasts some new improvements and features over the original release including 4K and DLSS. This means high-end PCs will benefit from the game’s overhauled visuals. With that being said, if you don’t have a super PC, you can still enjoy the game. The Alan Wake Remastered PC system requirements aren’t as hefty as you would expect.
The PC version of the game requires an x64 PC with DirectX 12. Unfortunately, the game does not support ray tracing or HDR at all. Alan Wake Remastered on PC does support ultra-wide displays, unlocked frame rates and other PC-only features including motion blur toggles, V-Sync and more.
Remedy says that while the game does boast some new visual changes, the studio left the gameplay and features completely untouched.
“The plan has always been more about introducing Alan Wake to new audiences rather than remaking the game. We are still quite happy with the game a decade later.
From the outset, we decided that this is a remaster and not a remake. While there were some frustrations with the original game’s gameplay (things like Alan often being out of breath when running), we feel these are part of the original Alan Wake experience and haven’t changed them.”
