Eurogamer Portugal published a gameplay video from Akan Wake.
this is the 360 version OMG
I know >>> OMG ..... It looks sick...
Something like Silent Hill, but instead it's a writer dude who goes on vacation to some small town and his tales turn into reality. It looks like it's a great story full of suspense and mystery. It's probably also inspired by some great suspense and horror movies like Misery and The Ring. Should be a great game.
It really looks amazing and it seems to have a very creepy atmosphere to it.I would like to see some day time gameplay footage of the game. EDIT: You have to take into account that this game is open world when judging the graphics, that's why everyone praises the look of the game so much.
This could very well be the greatest survival horror game of this gen. It has all the elements that scream awesome game. I love what they are doing with the lights and i want this game. As far as graphics go though i can't say with a straight face that this is the best the 360 has to offer. I don't even think it looks better than splinter cell. The visuals aren't anything to get excited about but the gameplay looks ace
Woah there, dont knock the graphics yet. They've got a year of development time left.
The graphics are great no doubt but they don't stand out enough to warrant any excitement imo. They have had like 4yrs development time. Most of what we saw was at night. Day time footage may show better graphics
Pls can you point out which OPEN WORLD game/games on consoles in you opinion look better than Alan Wake?
Game looks decent. I'm much more impressed with LP2 than this one. Smart use of darkness, gameplay-wise it's like Silent Hill. The whole "can kill ghost with a gun" is a bit wth? Regarding the open-world-ness, I want to see something under the sunlight. Dark environments can be used to hide popins and the technical hurdles a game of this genre needs to solve. Besides that, there is very few happening around.
kind of reminds me of RE 4. love the atmosphere.
Single handed demolishes all anti-xbox guys' assumptions that the Xbox 360 couldn't compete graphically anymore. Looks unbelievable.
alan wait is well known for his acid trips as shown in the picture
beautiful [email protected] below: yah thank god they're using it ... its been pretty much absent for this whole generation... i couldnt believe my eyes when fear 2 ddint have any ... even bioshock 2 doesnt doesnt seem to have any ... so far this gen valve has really used a lot of dynamic shadows with l4d and orange box
yeah dynamic shadows...never to be seen before
Nice concept. Glad to see the game is coming along. I will say that much of the game thus far looks good but it makes me wonder what the full game in terms of open world will be like. It's a small town and not a city and a free roaming forest is not all that much to have fun with. Makes me wonder what other settings will be in the game to truly demonstrate the open world aspect. Games like inFAMOUS and GTA4 have intense surroundings that might explain a lower poly count int he characters but with this game being set in the woods and in a small town, there would naturally be no reason for a low poly count in the characters.
I am yet to see anythin "open world" about alan wake
It's been widely known that AW is going to be open world. Just google it.
Look the game looks good. If it's true this is the 360 version and not the PC version then thats great. I do agree with sonarus. I have yet to see anything "open world" about it. Please link green or syronicus. It looks about as open world as uncharted was. It's not that I don't believe you I have just yet to see it. I mean silent hill was "open world" in a lot of ways but not in the same way at all as GTA or infamous or Crackdown.
Alan Wake looks amazing and its a good sign that 360 games are starting to cause PS3 fans to troll even more on a whole new level. I think this game bothers people because its open world and looks better then Heavy Rain.
Looks like a great game. I'm really sad that they dumbed down the graphics for 360 though. I was hoping to get a visually amazing game on the PC.

The game is looking top notch. Seems interesting, must buy for all x360 and PC owners.
Fable 3 would look awsome with this engine :)
that wasn't true 720p but it looks awesome
i knew it was gona be good i wish it came out this year though but we have plenty right now :)
ps3 is dead
Looks like Alone in the Dark... Anyway downloading it day one.
Lol 90% of the gamer comments in there are from 360 fan boys. They game looks great don't get me wrong but they acting like if it was mgs4 or kz2 lol, they haven't played great graphically games yet i guess
But it is Alone in the Dark 2nd Edition. Since the 1st Edition was a Beta test for... ehh well u know the rest...heheh
It really was an impressive showing. The atmosphere was amazing, the animation really fluid and I really was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time. I'm looking forward to the game. Hope the use of light isn't a shallow gimmick.
This game may be the best...er is going to be the best looking open world game out there. This game SHOULD be receive almost perfect scores across the board if it actually lives up to what it is. I really don't see how this could fail. Off topic though I really hope they release ff14 close behind the pc and ps3 launch. This is going to be huge if they can pull off this cross platform gaming between the three. If they pull this off properly this could be bigger than WOW, I say that because the only way to play WOW is through pc,but imagine a world filled with ps3, 360, and pc gamers.
u cant be serious.. this looks terrible.
LOL it looks better than Heavy Rain. http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://www.1up.com/media/03... http://screenshots.teamxbox... Heavy Rain got downgraded and Alan Wake looks better and its open world. Heavy Rain is interactive cutscene.
Check you eyes as Alan Wake doesn't look better. Heck, even LP2 looks better than Alan Wake. The graphic is a huge disappointment that's for sure; let's hope the gameplay can save it from being a flop?
LOL sure it does. Its funny how you keep talking about Lost Planet 2 like you're so proud of it like that was the PS3 version being shown, hell the PS3 version has not even started development. “We’re only working on the 360 version of Lost Planet 2 right now,” Takeuchi told us during Capcom’s Captivate event last week." http://www.nowgamer.com/new... http://e3.g4tv.com/videos/3...
Alan Wake got downgraded too
Rlly duh make more accounts foo! so u can disagree and agree more timeS!
The graphics are very,very good..... However listen to the sound efects and the incidental music - thats whats truly outstanding. This more than anything can make a game in the genre 'feel' good to play. Watch and 'Listen' again guys......
What was even more impressive was the post processing and particle effects. All running on the XBox 360 hardware. It remains to be seen if this fidelity and polish holds up through the entirety of the game.
Yes it is realistic the gunshots and the sounds of something moving inside the house. the flare sound.... This game looks and sounds amazing.
There is nothing Alan Wake is doing in regards to sound or music that PS3 games haven't been doing since year 1 but this game will be out in the 360's 4th year and you all act like it's the bees knees when you have way higher sound and music on PS3 games from the start. Plus, what's with all the "it's open world gameplay"? I've seen nothing from Alan Wake for 3 yrs that showed ANY kind of open world gameplay. It's pacing is just like Silent Hill or Resident Evil etc etc It's also crazy how the 360 fanbase are insanely hyping this game's graphics. It's like they're sticking their fingers in their ears shouting "lalalalala iz teh uber iz teh uber iz teh uber lalalala!!!" I mean, there is really nothing outstanding in with the graphics of this game. It looks great but hell, it looks like any other great looking mulitiplatform game. I mean, if someone had told me this was Alone in the Dark 2 I wouldn't have even flinched. Then I've read about "oh it has amazing physics and animations" and I'm like WHAT?! where? pls show me this amazing animations and physics cause I've not seen anything out of the ordinary with this game in those regards. IMO, the 360 are insanely hyping this game cause they were banking all in on this game being like all these PS3 exclusives that the PS3 fanbase always talk about and they haven't had a truly good new AAA ip in the longest time. Infact there's only really been Geow so I'm guessing they NEED this one... bad and they'll hype it to eternity to get it.
No one cares about your fanboy rant, just thought I'd let you know that. Please move to the right--------->
Chubear how can you have so many bubbles? Oh multiplie accounts I almost forogot sorry.
Looks like Alan is wide awake. Without a doubt one of the best looking console games this gen. I love the classic horror strings they use when enemies spot you. Can't wait to play this gem!
I see no reason why we could not have a FF14 network with PS3 360 and PC linked, why not.
lol, i love the picture alan is showing us his O face
WTF???? Dynamic soft shadows in an open world game....on a console????? Whats the point of all those triple x280somethings when you got 360?? Mediocrezone2 re-annihilated!! Sfags committing suicide!! CELL competing with wii confirmed!!
OMG OMG WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT ???? you x-tards have been waiting for a game with last gen graphics for 4 years !
yea ya know, cause everything looks so awesome when the games color palette is black and gray. I've seen more color in my dogs poop.
why does "use the light" on the wall suddenly disappear and the hole in the wall is a different shade than the walls on either side? Why does the can roll over all kinds of debris on the ground but it doesn't change its path or even register the different levels on the ground. i know im nit picking but apparently killzone 2 had some weak textures and the ps3 can't pull off anti aliasing properly. AMIRITE??? In all seriousness though, the game does have good graphics and seems to have a good story line, but im really not interested in playing it. I thought the game was gonna be real horror oriented and it honestly looks exactly like Alone in the Dark, Alan even looks like Edward Carnby. I think my little brother is gonna buy it so i'll play his copy when i go visit him.
STFU. you sound like my mother.
An HD video of Alan Wake. Damn it! too bad I'm stuck at work and it'll be another 5 hrs before I get off. I could already imagine Alan Wake being one of those classic games people will reference in the future, just like Silent Hill 1&2 when it comes to horror games.
2010 is looking amazing for 360 and PS3 owners :-)
A sane person on n4g!??! I'm baffled.
what is it with you people?
lol, i was just kidding with the whole dog poop comment, my actual views are in the gamer section and they aren't negative towards the game. I just get a laugh out of the open zone, it can be a madhouse at times. Plus, its the internet, nothing should be taken seriously on here.
@hatchimatchi i was kidding aswell ;-)
awesome, im glad to see there are other people here with a sense of humor. Cheers!
Simply stunning, imagine exploration in day time too !!!! 360 visuals seem top of the top too
Sorry guys, this looks booring.
i like the part where he had the flair in his hand and he was moving towers them
But this is still nowhere near the quality of the Sony games.
...P.C!!! ;-D Wasn't this game coming to P.C to??? I get confused with M$ talk!!! ;-D
The first flare amazes me. Just look how vivid that smoke looks and the glare of of Alan's back as he walks by.
.. are you serious?!
Please after reading your comments one could ask you the same thing. You ramble and ramble on nonsense because you hate the Xbox360 and will try to downplay every article showing off the new things coming to it. The Ps3 and its momentum is at a standstill and you hate that...so to get your underdeveloped appendages wet you troll every article 360 positive related and bash it. So please close your hole.
LOL it looks average, infamous looks much better as far as open world games go. As for character models, it's fugly. Uncharted and Heavy Rain annihilate it, even infamous which is open world and Gears and Killzone, both of which have ugly characters, like Alan Wake but not as bad :)
Exactly. I dont' get it. It looks like any other good looking multiplat game but for some reason the 360 fanbase see something totally different from what others are seeing. The 360 fanbase are masters at hyping the normal ordinary things and making them out to be the best things eva! Madness. Look just go get yourselves PS3 exclusive games and you won't have to pretend graphics are ultra hot.
This definitely looks better than InFAMOUS in terms of graphics, but it isn't exactly groundbreaking like some people are making it out to be. The graphics have obviously received a big downgrade. I don't like the music string they pull to get an old horror movie feel. I hear that noise and it just makes the game look corny. And it isn't scary at all. Change the music, make the graphics like they originally had it, make it creepy or tense, then it'll be an excellent game.
Yeah, I've been saying this since the footage came out Alan In the Dark. Doesn't look any better and for a game that was suppose to be hyped to hell and back for its graphics this is tremendously disappointing. I'm still going to get the game for PC since I learned my lesson when I bought Mass Effect for Xbox.
...beleave how many sony fanboys come onto 360 related threads just to tell everyone ow superior the PS3 is!? it makes me wish i had never purchase my ps3 for fear i may one day become one of you! ps-killzone 2 is the MOST and i do mean MOST over rated game i have evr had the misfortune to purchase,the campaign is soooo boring! And as for those amazing graphics,where is all the AA?Jaggy jaggy!
