Alan Wake Remastered Minimum and Recommended PC Specs, Requirements

Can you run Alan Wake Remastered? Here are the minimum and recommended PC specs and requirements, as well as the game's various options.

Alan Wake Remastered is due to launch on PC and consoles on October 5. Ahead of that launch date, developer Remedy has shared the game's minimum and recommended PC specs and requirements.

The specs and requirements are expectedly higher than those of the original game but not too demanding. Alan Wake Remastered won't, for example, offer raytracing, so you won't need a GPU that can handle that. 

Alan Wake Remastered Minimum Specs, Requirements

  • CPU: i5-3340 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD equivalent w/ 2GB VRAM
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD/SSD: ~36GB
  • OS: Win 10 64-bit

Alan Wake Remastered Recommended Specs, Requirements

  • CPU: i7-3770 or equivalent
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD equivalent w/ 4GB VRAM
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD/SSD: ~36GB
  • OS: Win 10 64-bit

According to the official FAQ page, PC will support up to 4K resolution at an unlimited, unlocked framerate. With that in mind, it's possible you may need a build with slightly higher specs than the recommended listing above for steady performance.

The PC version will only support 64-bit operating systems and those running DirectX 12. It will have DLSS, ultra-wide monitor support with full screen, windowed, and borderless options, and draw and render distance sliders. 

There will also be options for ambient occlusion, motion blur, volumetric lighting, terrain quality, FOV, film grain, HUD (enable/disable), shadow quality, and anisotropic filtering.
