The much-anticipated sequel to Remedy’s Alan Wake is just around the corner. Over 13 years since the release of the original, Alan Wake 2 is finally releasing on October 27.
Communications Director at Remedy, Thomas Puha, explained on X that although the game has been developed as a 30fps experience, focussing on visuals and ambiance, there will be a ‘solid’ performance mode, that comes with the option to increase the frame rate.
When asked by an X user, “Do you mean unlocked with a 60fps target or a true 60fps lock majority of the time,” Puha simply responded — “Still tweaking that.”
The initial release date was slated for October 17 but was delayed by 10 days to avoid the crowd — particularly Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2.
I’m glad to say that Alan Wake 2 will have a Performance mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game has been built from the beginning as a 30fps experience focusing on visuals and ambiance, but somehow we have managed to include a solid Performance mode. We’ll talk details later.— Thomas Puha (@RiotRMD) September 27, 2023
