Alan Wake Remastered PC System Requirements Revealed

Alan Wake GOG

The remaster of the critically acclaimed Alan Wake is less than a month away. The game will launch on every major platform on October 5. Console owners will just have to purchase the game and enjoy it, whereas PC players still have to check the hardware of their machines. Check out the trailer released yesterday during the PS Showcase Event.

The game is being published by Epic Games. So to no one's surprise, the PC version is exclusive on Epic Games Store. Its store page is already up and running, and you can pre-order it for only $29.99. However, before you do that, be sure to read the PC system requirements.

The developer of the game, Remedy Entertainment, has revealed the official requirements. As you would expect, they are not too high. If you upgraded your PC in the last five to six years, then you should be fine.

The game will only run on Windows 10 64-bit. So, Windows 7 and 8 users don’t even try to play it. The developer, however, hasn’t mentioned how much free storage space you will require.

To run the game in minimum settings, you will need an Intel i5-3340 paired with Nvidia GeForce GTX 960. For memory, the game requires 2 GB of VRAM and 8 GB of RAM.

For higher settings, you will need Intel i7-3770 or its AMD equivalent, paired with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. The memory requirements are doubled.

Minimum Requirements 
  • CPU: i5-3340 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD equivalent with 2 GB VRAM
  • RAM: 8 GB or higher
Recommended Requirements 
  • CPU: i7-3770 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD equivalent with 4 GB VRAM
  • RAM: 16 GB

You can read the requirements on the official page.

Alan Wake Remastered will be released on PlayStation consoles as well. This is the first time PS players will enjoy Alan Wake, as the original game was an Xbox 360 console exclusive. Check out our previous article for more information.
