In a new post on Twitter, the official Alan Wake 2 account revealed that Remedy changed the game’s minimum PC system requirements to lower specs.

Remedy released an updated chart for the requirements, detailing what changes they made for today’s update

For GPU, players can now use a GeForce GTX 1070 or a Radeon RX 5600 XT. This will make it easier for fans to experience the game with an older setup.

With these new options, Alan Wake 2 will perform at 30 FPS and 1080p. Naturally, fans can still use a stronger setup to play with a higher performance.

Fans universally praised Remedy’s unusual and friendly move. PC technology advances quickly, and many gamers build their own setup. So, it can be difficult for some longtime fans to upgrade and keep up with the latest improvements.

Alan Wake 2 is certainly a major title to miss out on due to technological setbacks. It earned a nomination for Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023, though it lost out to Baldur’s Gate 3.

Last month, Remedy also revealed that Alan Wake 2 is the studio’s fastest selling game yet. The developer released impressive sales data, adding that Alan Wake 2 sold “1.3 million units as of the beginning of February 2024”.

CEO Tero Virtala said that “the successful launch of Alan Wake 2 has supported our other game projects”. So, fans can expect future titles such as Control 2 and the Max Payne remake to stay on track.

Last week, Remedy bought the full rights to the Control franchise from 505 Games for for €17 million. Virtala stated the purchase “gives us the freedom to decide the best path forward”.
