Report: Alan Wake stops snoozing May 2010

Alan Wake will allegedly premiere in late May of next year on Xbox 360. MCV reports that "a source close to the game" gave the new release date and suggested that the title would be promoted "in the style of a Hollywood movie."

Officially, we know that Wake's drawn out development will conclude in "Spring 2010" -- around the 5-year mark. We've also previously been told that the game has been done since August and is in hibernation being polished over and over again. We've followed up with Remedy and Microsoft to see if either would like to confirm today's reported release date.

and yes Tara, i know this has already been mentioned on the main site  :)

Alan Wake will stay up late with post-launch DLC 'episodes'

Remedy's Xbox 360-exclusive Alan Wake, described as "the TV show Lost, as written by Stephen King, and filmed by David Lynch," by Microsoft Entertainment & Devices head Robbie Bach will -- much like Fable II -- be expanded upon via additional downloadable episodes. Bach made the announcement concerning the long-in-development title during the company's CES 2010 keynote this evening, saying, "story-driven like a TV series, Alan Wake will be told in episodes with even more episodes available on Xbox Live after its launch this year."

Let's just hope Remedy isn't taking cues from The Sopranos when deciding how long it will be between the release of the game's episodes.

Remedy has dash hopes of an Alan Wake demo in an online Q&A session with fans.
When asked if we were going to see an Alan Wake demo, 'MikaRMD' of Remedy answered "demo before the launch, most likely not."

That doesn't rule out the possibility of a demo after Alan Wake is released, obviously, but we can't help but feel demos become fairly redundant at that point anyway. What we do know is that you won't be able to try before you buy if you're planning on a release day purchase.

The first details on Alan Wake Special Edition have been revealed.
The Limited Collector's Edition has been designed to look like a book, reflecting Alan Wake's in-game role as an author.

The collection also contains exclusive in-game commentary and hints by Remedy, a 144-page book called "The Alan Wake Files" that has a short story penned by Wake and FBI dossiers investigating the events of the game, DLC token for the first Alan Wake add-on content pack, "exclusive Xbox disc" with Alan Wake Xbox Live them and avatars items and it will include the soundtrack on a separate disc.

And without any further ado, here's the trailer!

Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Hmmmm. Does not look like a Silent Hill 2 beater. But if this game does not deliver, my back garden will take some beating.

Everytime i look at that, i wanna post an elegant and damning quip, but it seems TOO easy. Mayhaps let one of the new boys take a pop at the old 360DF pervy humour :P

Alan Wake ending is 'a cliffhanger'
Developer Remedy tells CVG that first episode leaves gamers wanting more

Alan Wake developer Remedy has told CVG that the game - a first episode in a planned series - will end on a 'cliffhanger'.

The studio informed us in a new interview that the denouement of the title will "keep the tension high" for gamers - leaving them wanting more.

Writer Sam Lake told CVG: "We really feel there needs to be a satisfying conclusion [to the first game]. But at the same time, it needs to end in kind of a cliffhanger - and we need to open doors for a larger story beyond this one.

He added: "I think a good cliffhanger is always your friend - it keeps the tension high. That episodic structure of Alan Wake means you can always end the episode a couple of minutes or a few seconds before things are resolved [to make people want more]."

However, Lake has also told us that the studio is not yet sure how the full Alan Wake story will end.

You can read our latest Alan Wake preview here, in which CVG likens the title to 'Resident Evil 4 with clever words'. In a good way.

Microsoft has confirmed that the Alan Wake release date will be May 21 in Europe.
