Alan Wake II, which is releasing worldwide on October 27th, has already impressed fans far and wide in early gameplay trailers and showcases. It looks phenomenal and boasts a unique gameplay loop that should keep veteran horror fans on their toes and solving puzzles for hours on end.

Fortunately, things are getting better. Earlier today, Thomas Puha, the Communications Director at Remedy, took to the airwaves to confirm that Alan Wake II will feature a ‘solid performance mode’ on both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

A Welcome Upgrade

In his message posted just hours ago, Puha explained that the game has been built all along to accommodate a ’30 FPS experience focusing on visuals and ambience’, but the developers have now ‘somehow’ managed to build a resilient performance mode into the game.

In the comments, Puha went on to clarify a couple of key points:

  • Whether the frame rate will be locked to 60 FPS or targeting 60 FPS is being tweaked.
  • The game has been built as a 30 FPS experience on consoles, not PCs.

Alan Wake II is set to be a fantastic sequel – and it has been in the works for more than a decade. For those looking forward to the game, there isn’t long to wait – it releases in exactly one month on October 27th.
