Boxed release coming April 3rd
After such a successful launch of Alan Wake for the PC on Steam, Remedy is teaming up with Legacy Interactive to distribute a boxed release of Alan Wake for the PC in North America. Currently, the boxed release is only planned for the North American market, but that could change in the future.
The boxed version for the PC will start hitting shelves on April 3rd. The boxed offering for the PC will be similar to the Steam offering, in that it will contain both The Writer and The Signal DLC packs as part of the offering.
The decision to release a boxed version of Alan Wake for the PC took a lot of effort and was still a bit unexpected after the success of the Steam Collector’s Edition launch deal. Remedy decided to wait an additional week and extend the deal on the Steam Collector’s Edition.
Despite all of this, Remedy says that fans were still waiting for the announcement of a boxed version of the game, as they wanted it rather than the Steam version.
