A newly updated registry lists the XBLA title for Steam.
Alan Wake's American Nightmare will soon be getting a PC release. The newly updated registry list for Steam has the Remedy game included in its database, pretty much confirming the title will be available for the platform at some point in the future.
Submitted for your approval: the story of a man fighting against the darkness.
American Nightmare is a smaller, more action focused entry in the series. The backdrop for Wake’s new tale is far removed from Cauldron Lake in the first game, and instead moves into the desert of Arizona. Wake is on the trail of Mr. Scratch, the darkness-created doppleganger featured in the two DLC episodes for Alan Wake: The Signal and The Writer.
A super special edition of the PC version and American Nightmare is just the beginning.
Alan Wake had a rather lengthy development cycle, and at one point, Remedy’s third person horror game was intended for PC. The game was then slated to go multiplatform before becoming an Xbox 360 exclusive that had the bad luck of launching the same day as Red Dead Redemption. Now, as Remedy puts the finishing touches on the XBLA release of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the original game is finally ready for its PC debut. Remedy hasn’t forgotten their PC roots, and intends to make the Alan Wake release something special.
Remedy's game will be released on Steam.
PC gamers will be able to get their hands on what was previously an Xbox 360 exclusive sometime this February. In a forum post, Remedy's community manager revealed that Alan Wake is coming to PC via Steam. The PC version will not use Games for Windows Live and will come with the previously released DLC content, The Signal and The Writer.
