The launch of Alan Wake Remastered for Xbox One, Series X and Series S is fast approaching its October 5 release date, and now we've got a comparison trailer between the Series X and original Xbox 360 versions.

As expected, there are some pretty substantial differences between the two, with an obviously increased resolution, highly improved textures and a much better character model for Alan (and others) amongst the changes.

We already know that the Xbox Series X version of the game will run at up to 4K, 60fps (Series S is 1080, 60fps), while the Xbox One X version will be getting Performance (4K, 30fps) and Quality (1080p, 60fps) modes depending on whether you want to prioritise visual quality or an improved framerate.

In addition, the game will include redone cinematic cut-scenes with improved facial animation and lip sync, richer environmental details (improved textures and additional geometry), enhanced character models with updated hair and skin shaders, and improved visual effects and lighting.

If you're interested in picking it up, Alan Wake Remastered is now available to pre-order on the Microsoft Store at a price of £24.99 / $29.99. It also supports Smart Delivery, so you can upgrade to the next-gen version at no extra charge.

"Alan Wake Remastered offers the complete experience, with the main game and its two story expansions - The Signal and The Writer - in stunning new 4K visuals. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliff hangers, and intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness.

The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and the majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have been enhanced for an experience that delivers as much on its visual impact as its unnerving atmosphere."
