Alan Wake Remastered: One Decade Of Evolution For The Journalist [VIDEO]

Remedy Entertainment will probably make some money on this Alan Wake Remastered game before the sequel: you can see what the Finns are up to.


Remedy’s game (with D3T’s help; they work on remastering procedures) got discussed in detail on the Xbox website: “The game runs in (upscaled) 4K at 60 FPS on Xbox Series X, and in 1080p at 60 FPS on Xbox Series S. You can expect to see re-worked cutscenes with improved facial animations and lip-syncing, richer environments, and enhanced character models that have updated skin and hair shaders. Improvements have also been made to materials and textures in general, plus anti-aliasing, shadows, wind simulation, and increased draw distances.

Being such a story-focused game, Alan Wake Remastered’s cast of more than 30 characters is a massive part of the overall experience and was naturally an area we focused a lot of our time on. An entire team of character artists went back to the original reference materials to help make the characters look more like the actors they were based on. […] The animation teams transformed the game by making significant upgrades to facial animations, core gameplay movement, and more. This involved creating new rigs for the characters’ faces, entirely new motion capture for dialogue, and more than 600 additional poses are designed to provide different expressions to the performances.

The environment is equally important and demands as much care and attention as Alan himself. With that in mind, we had a dedicated sub-team working entirely on trees and foliage. The forest is a profoundly complex environment. The team brought it to life by adding all-new details like ferns, moss, fallen leaves, and other ground coverage, alongside improvements to animations like trees blowing in the wind. […] The environment team worked closely with the programmers to upgrade the terrain itself, adding greater complexity and fidelity to different materials, from dirt and rocks to the mountains and more urban materials like concrete and tarmac. A team of artists then set to work adding further detail to buildings, vehicles, and other objects to make sure that Bright Falls is as compelling and dramatic as it deserves to be,” the post reads.

Alan Wake Remastered launches on October 5 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and there might be a Nintendo Switch version on the way.
