Earlier this month, it announced a 4K overhaul of Remedy’s cult flashlight game Alan Wake, promising to bring new visual fidelity to the unfamiliar world of Bright Falls.Now, provided by Alan Wake Remastered FAQ, We know what it takes to run it.

The PC version of Alan Wake Remastered requires x64 architecture and DirectX 12, and will support Nvidia DLSS but not ray tracing or HDR. I think this is interesting because just a few days ago we announced that DLSS instead of ray tracing is for Nvidia RTX cards “True Legacy”. But it is also worth noting that the GTX 1060 in the recommended specifications does not support DLSS: if you want all the bells and whistles, you need to upgrade it to an Nvidia RTX GPU.
Alan Wake Remastered will support ultra-wide displays (although pre-rendered cutscenes will still be rendered in 16:9 instead of 21:9), and the frame rate will be unlocked. Here are all the various settings and options available to you:
- Ambient Occlusion-Yes-(HBAO+ Nvidia Ambient Occlusion Technology)

The FAQ also addresses the reason why Remedy remade instead of remade Alan Wake, which will remain completely unchanged except for the big visual upgrade.
“The plan has always been more about introducing Alan Wake to new audiences rather than remaking the game,” it said. “Ten years later, we are still very satisfied with this game.”
“From the beginning, we decided that this was a remake instead of a remake. Although there were some frustrations with the gameplay of the original game (for example, Allen was often out of breath while running), but we felt that these were the original Ai Some of the experiences that Lun awakened did not change them.”
Fans of Alan Wake who are eager for a sequel may still get some good news at some point: Remedy is still working on an unannounced project with Epic Games, which some people think is Alan Wake 2.
