Alan Wake is a little over a week away
from living out his "American Nightmare" on Xbox Live Arcade, which
could be why Remedy is ramping up its promotional efforts
with a new Mr. Scratch trailer and details on Nordic Games' port of the original Alan Wake for PC.
Fans of the series will recognize Mr. Scratch as Alan Wake's psychotic
doppelganger. In American Nightmare, Mr. Scratch will play a more
prominent role, stepping out of the shadows to make Wake's life even
more of a living hell. Watch him take shape in Remedy's live-action teaser:
Nordic Games also dropped the details
of its incoming Alan Wake Collector's Edition for PC. Over and above
the original game and its DLC releases, The Signal and The Writer,
the disc will ship with features like The History of
Remedy, The Making of Alan Wake, The Making of a Thriller, several
Old Gods of Asgard music videos, and several more trailers showcasing
the game's art and storyboards. As for non-digital content, the
special edition will include The Alan Wake Files, a book delving into
the mysteries of Bright Falls; a
copy of the game's 13-song soundtrack; six post cards, depicting
iconic scenes; seven stickers; and a double sided poster.
Rest assured, those who opt for the
standard edition will also get Alan Wake and all of the original DLC,
plus the aforementioned stickers, poster, postcards, and soundtrack.
Downloadable versions of the standard
edition and collector's editions are scheduled for Steam on February
16, while the retail versions with all the physical extras are expected to arrive March 2.
