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.
