Alan Wake Is Reportedly Getting a Remaster That Adds Ray-Tracing and 60 FPS
Reports are emerging from multiple sources suggesting that a remastered version of Alan Wake is releasing soon for multiple platforms.
The first sign of Alan Wake remaster was seen with a Taiwanese retailer listing that had the game set for October 5th. The listing specified a PS4, PS5, and Xbox consoles version. This listing is no longer available though, but you can see screenshots of it on social media.
The second indication that a remaster was indeed coming was seen when the Niko Partner analyst Daniel Ahmed tweeted that it might be announced later this week.
After this news broke out, NintendoPAL appears to have shared more information on the remaster including details like ray-tracing and 60 FPS support. While it won’t be surprising to see them added to the remaster, the bigger news here is that all of this will be achieved on the Northlight Engine, which was previously used for Control.
The website also suggests that Alan Wake Remaster might not launch on the Nintendo Switch, but a Cloud version can happen. According to another well-known Leaker, DirectFeedGames, this won’t be announced during the upcoming PlayStation Showcase on September 9. Obviously, you need to take this with a grain of salt and all, but this is not the first time this remaster has leaked.
