New Alan Wake Remastered screenshots have surfaced, and what's more, MP1st has even done a comparison of the remaster to the original.
Looks like the PC version at higher settings ... another lazy one, it seems
I think for most PS gamers, it won't matter since they'd want to experience the game, but I get your point.
Early price leaks say it's also going to be 40. The leaked price was £24.99 which people say is 40. Can't wait to see people say it's too much when other's are charging 60 for remasters and straight up ports...
Actually since playstation users are used to high quality remasters this probably won't be so eye catching.
@ doomedguy People keep saying Remaster and Remake interchangeably and it's triggering. And games press does it on podcasts as well. Remasters Skyward Sword Switch Mass Effect Collection Uncharted Collection Remakes Demon's Souls PS5 Resident evil 2/3 PS4 MGS Twin Snakes Maybe you don't mean PS5 Demon Souls when you say high quality remasters but i wanted to put that out there anyways.
PS gamers should also get some additional incentive due to DualSense features, hopefully - especially after how well they implemented them into Control.
Demon Souls is not a true remake. Outside of graphics, sound and animation, there really is no difference. The improvements of graphics, sound, animations, while leaving everything else the same is the definition of a remaster. Level design, levels themselves, bosses. All the same. Out of all remasters though, Demon Souls does what other remasters should have done. Most remasters only improve the graphics, Demon Souls not only did this but also improved the sound and animations, so I think that confuses people thinking its a remake, when its really showing you how a remaster should be done. Resident Evil 2 & FF7 are probably the best examples of remakes
Never understand the “Playstation gamers” will get to experience this. True gamers don’t limit themselves to 1 platform. Nothing stopped anyone from playing it back in the day.
To be fair, it is just a remaster. The PC version already looked good to this day, outside of some muddy textures here and there. The character models seemed to get a solid overhaul. Seems they improved some of the weak points of the visuals, and that's all I really ask for. I'm just glad Sony only players get a chance to play this. Easily one of my favorite games from the PS3/360 generation.
It's a remaster not a remake, so it's more along the lines of how the PS360 did their collections, higher resolution, higher assets. Except as you said it's basically the PC version Ultra Settings with small tweaks.
There are stellar remasters like Halo 2 and Spider-Man ... and there are lazy remasters like NFS Hot Pursuit and Mafia 2. So take your pick. And yes I was not considering this Alan Wake a Remake. 🙄
Honestly this was disappointing. I was hoping they'd do more.
Yup, same here. Especially after Control.
I totally disagree. This looks like a fantastic remaster. Smoke and volumetric lighting. Seriously improved character models and word details. I don’t know which trailer you watched
Cool .. its your perspective. If you like it, you'll enjoy it. Happy Gaming.
These screens do it no justice. I just pre-ordered it on PS5 and the screens look fantastic. Honestly these shots are so low quality that they make this submission, in my opinion, misleading.
Im expecting ray traced shadows and light shafts as well as 60fps. That shouldnt be too much to ask for.
i expect at least 60FPS
I expected Ray tracing too. It's a game based around a flash light. Oh well, not everyone is Bluepoint.
No Ray Tracing no game for me, I have already played this almost 10 years ago, it was great but as aged really bad.
What is it about ray-tracing that makes or breaks a game for people? I don't think I will ever understand.
I mean this game is all about light and shadows, so Ray tracing would be a prime candidate for it. But generally speaking I could care less until GPU are powerful enough that it doesn't effect performance as much, which should be in a few years on PC. 60fps is significantly more important IMO.
I'm interested in replaying the same game just because it got a resolution bump, PC version has been much better them the Xbox 360 version, a new version for consoles that just looks like the PC version is a lazy port, so nothing new nothing to game.
What has gaming come to when suddenly ray tracing is a deal breaker?!
I play most AAA games nowadays on Switch Lite so playing this on my PS4 will be a treat 😁
I Switch as been off ever since 2018 maybe just maybe Metal Slug tactics will make me power it up again.
Hard to add RT to an engine not using it at the time, they will need to use the control engine yo completely redo the game and then it is a remake rather than a remaster.
So this is what passes for "remastered" these days? I'm pretty sure the PC mods on the original version looks much better than this.
I will just stick with the original on backwards compatibility on my Series x
As a proud member of the Sony family im happy to finnaly get a chance to play this.
What does remaster mean to you guys? As far as I’m aware, a remaster is improving the visuals, frame rate, and resolution over the original release. Which is what this is doing but some of you seem to be under the impression that a remaster means a complete demon souls overhaul. Some of you seriously need to curb the expectations when it comes to video games. This is how Cuberpunk ended up being the overhyped mess it was.
If this remaster only has minimal updates and as others are saying a basic pc port, then I will wait to see if it ever arrive on Plus. Always thought the game seemed interesting, but not willing to spend forty dollars for a decade old game that looks and plays the same as when originally released.
If you have a 360, just get a copy for that. Its pretty cheap to find.
Never owned an Xbox, but had a friend that did have a 360. Only thing he wanted to play was sports and an occasional FPS, that was when I played the first three Gears of Wars.
Also available on XOne and series consoles digitally for 20.
@Abnor_Mal Uuuuuuhhhhh Xbox.....The Devil!!!
Looks just ok. At least on the PC we can expect mods to make it look even better. But for now we can always use reshade to make it look so much better.
I hope I'm wrong but I'd be willing to bet this game has broken hdr and instead of blacks we get washed out Grey coating every scene.
Not gonna lie, they look pretty fucking similar
Not sure if I want the remaster or just pay the $9 on Ebay for the 360 game to play on my XB1 I have never played Alan Wake before.
Tiered of remasters
Yeah.. I hoped more than a fork cup on a table and some ssao.
