Alan Wake 2 has continued to stun and impress with its visuals and spooky but enticing world since its reveal during The Game Awards 2021. Since then, we’ve seen beautiful concept art, trailers, gameplay, and more of developer Remedy Entertainment’s latest. Today, Remedy communications director Thomas Puha confirmed on Twitter that Alan Wake 2 will have a Performance mode on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Notably, Puha’s tweet specifically names “Xbox Series X,” and not the weaker Xbox Series S console. As it stands, it’s unclear if the aforementioned Performance mode will come to Xbox Series S consoles; Game Informer has reached out to Remedy for confirmation and will update this story if we learn more.
I’m glad to say that Alan Wake 2 will have a Performance mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game has been built from the beginning as a 30fps experience focusing on visuals and ambiance, but somehow we have managed to include a solid Performance mode. We’ll talk details later.
The game is also launching on PC, but like most games, Alan Wake 2 will not have modes as players can tweak settings to their own liking. Puha says Alan Wake 2 “has been built from the beginning as a 30fps experience focusing on visuals and ambiance, but somehow, we have managed to include a solid Performance mode.” However, Puha says the team will talk details about this Performance mode later.
In a reply to Puha’s tweet, someone asks, “When you say performance, do you mean unlocked with a 60fps target or a true 60fps lock majority of the time?” Puha says Remedy is “still tweaking that.” Alan Wake 2 hits PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on October 27 so it sounds like we’ll be learning more about the game’s Performance mode soon.
