How Does Alan Wake Remastered Compare to the Original? - Comparison Video

Matt Lorrigan

It's been eleven long years since Alan Wake made his debut on Xbox 360, wearing one too many coats, and with a permanent five o'clock shadow. Over a decade later, the titular writer returns in a remastered version of the original Alan Wake game for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with a brand new layer of sheen to make him presentable for the modern era.

Of course, we couldn't help but take a look back and see how Alan Wake Remastered compares against the original game, and the results very well might surprise you. At a glance, this is very clearly Alan Wake as you remember it, but how much of an improvement is it over the original? And what visual changes has the developer made to the cult classic action-adventure game?

Take a look at our Alan Wake Remastered comparison video down below to find out ahead of the game's launch tomorrow!

  • Installed and ready to go!
  • Spoiler alert. It looks way better.
  • Is it just me but does the fog and woods look much more sinister and haunting in the original? The remaster cleared up the muddled view and I feel that detracts from the atmosphere.
