Earlier this month, Remedy announced that they have been hard at work making Alan Wake Remastered for the PC via Epic Games Store, along with releases for the PlayStation and Xbox platforms. Today's new news focuses on the PC system requirements, including both the bare minimum hardware you will need along with the recommended specs. This all comes via a fresh FAQ that went up on the Alan Wake website.

On top of that, Remedy also shared some of the PC specific graphical options that you will be able to adjust or enable. Some of these features include Nvidia DLSS support, ultra-wide resolutions, and unlocked framerates.
