Alan Wake Remastered On Xbox Series X vs. Xbox 360 Compared In Trailer

A new Alan Wake Remastered trailer compares the first on Xbox 360 to the re-release’s incredibly impressive visuals on Xbox Series X.

The latest Alan Wake Remastered trailer highlights the striking visual differences between the first version on Xbox 360 and, therefore, the boosted experience which will soon hit Xbox Series X. Remedy Entertainment’s cult classic first launched for Xbox 360 in May 2010; the title’s proximity to Red Dead Redemption’s release arguably led to its less-than-stellar market performance. Those that did give the brilliant Falls-set adventure an opportunity quickly found themselves enamoured, however, taken by the light-based gameplay and unconventional gaming protagonist, a novelist named Alan Wake.

Apart from a standalone expansion, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, it long seemed as if the budding franchise had been tossed aside, its punishment for failing to line the planet ablaze. But hope arose two years ago when Remedy acquired the rights from Microsoft, leaving many to wonder if and when Wake would return. And return he did in 2019’s Control, garnering mention in collectibles strewn throughout the environment. The AWE DLC for Control set the novelist’s presence in stone, giving new audiences a taste of what had preceded. Fortunately, the revival of Alan Wake isn’t over just yet.
