IGN and Gamespot Previews

Posted at 08:30 GMT by Chris :: Comments: 3
IGN and Gamespot have both put up new previews of the demo Remedy showed them of Alan Wake. Although there aren't many new details, both articles are an interesting read. The game sounds genuinely freaky at some points. One new detail confirmed is that the game world is 10 x 10 Kilometres (6.2 x 6.2 miles). Previous reports suggested a map larger than this, however both IGN and Gamespot are quoting this figure.

Remedy yesterday demonstrated Alan Wake to over 2000 people at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. The off screen footage really shows off the game's incredible graphics and physics engine, especially with the dynamic weather effects, the tornado, as well as the lighting effects.


You can also see a couple of screen captures over at Ricardo's Blog and AnandTech.

Alan Wake On A Quad Core Processor

Posted at 22:02 GMT by Chris :: Comments: 0
Intel recently unveiled their brand new quad-core processors, branded the Core 2 Quad. Technology website bit-tech.com were treated to a demo of Alan Wake running on one of these things, and they had this to say about it...

The game looked, frankly, stunning. Remedy has coded the engine to take advantage of quad-core processors - the engine scales as you move from single to dual to quad. We saw some amazing environmental effects, not to mention true next-gen graphics that easily rival anything from Unreal Engine.

Markus Maki, Remedy's rep at the forum, said that Alan Wake had been 18 months in the making so far. The multiple cores are used to stream data in the background in preparation for moves into new areas, and to prepare output for the graphics card to render.

Markus also revealed that one whole core is used for physics calculations, and we saw a hurricane tear up the in-game world in a rather realistic fashion as illustration.

Sounds like Remedy have been working incredibly hard on this game, let's hope it's as great as everyone's making it out to be, I'm sure it will be anyway.
