Alan Wake 2, Remedy Entertainment's thrilling encore to its acclaimed narrative, now unfurls with less hardware demand for PC enthusiasts. Unveiled on its digital portal, this game-changing patch redefines accessibility, ensuring broader realms of engagement. 

Alan Wake 2Image: Launch TrailerDelve into this enigmatic sequel with eased prerequisites:

  • Intel i5-7600K or AMD equivalent;
  • 16 GB RAM;
  • GeForce GTX 1070 Radeon RX 5600 XT.

For recommended settings:

  • Ryzen 7 3700X or an Intel equivalent;
  • GeForce RTX 3060 Radeon RX 6600 XT.

For playing with ray tracing and all options enabled, a graphics card starting from RTX 4070 is required. Patch also brought a series of improvements and fixes for PC gameplay. The main enhancement relates to rendering optimization for graphics cards that do not support mesh shaders. 

This technology accelerates the processing of geometry and lighting in the game but requires compatibility with DirectX 12 Ultimate. Thanks to the patch, the game now runs more smoothly and stably on graphics cards without mesh shaders.

Alan Wake 2 is the sequel to Alan Wake, released in 2010, and has become one of the most atmospheric and engaging thriller games.
