Remedy's long-awaited supernatural action-adventure title Alan Wake will be released for Xbox 360 in spring 2010, the development team announced today. A release date for the promised PC version was not mentioned.

A brief demonstration of the game was shown prior to the date announcement, with protagonist Alan Wake chasing after companion Rusty--said to hold the manuscript pages Wake needs top save his wife Alice--whilst fighting off seemingly flannel-clad enemies, mysterious floating objects, and a huge flock of shadowy birds.

The game's human-like enemies, apparently miners or lumberjacks given the lush (though dark) forest setting, were shown as being weak to light, with Wake using a flashlight and flare gun to burn them as he ducked and avoided their attacks and tossed objects. The flashlight required the player to finish the foes off with a gun, while the flare gun and the resulting bloom took care of two foes standing next to each other.

        "It's because of piracy." Yeah right, fuck off.

      PC version should hopefully be released at the same time. The Microsoft conference is basically branded as the Xbox conference which means that they don't mention the PC at all :(

        Pretty much, just look at the new Splinter Cell game. All they said during the MS press conference that it was coming exclusive to the 360, but in all the official trailers and stuff it says 360 and PC
