Alan Wake Remastered Comparison Video Confirms 1440p Resolution on Xbox Series X, Bad Performance on Xbox One and More


A new Alan Wake Remastered comparison video has been shared online, highlighting some of the issues found on the Xbox versions of the remaster.

The new video, shared online by ElAnalistaDeBits, confirms that the game runs at 1080p, 60 FPS on Xbox Series S and 1440p, 60 FPS on Xbox Series X, which is definitely surprising, considering the hardware. The game doesn't fare well on Xbox One and Xbox One X, as it runs at 900p, 30 FPS, and 1440p, 30 FPS on the two consoles respectively.

The video also highlights several other issues found in Alan Wake Remastered such as the complete lack of HDR support, performance and tearing issues on Xbox One, and more. You can take a look at the video below.

- Alan Wake Remastered does not support HDR on any platform.
- The distance has improved in the remaster. One and SeriesS have a similar setup, somewhat better on OneX and with more items on SeriesX.
- Lower resolution textures on Xbox One.
- Some assets have been added in some areas (cones, fences ...), although anecdotally.
- As a personal opinion, some changes in the texturing or modeling of Alan Wake have not been good.
- Severe FPS issues in some cutscenes on Xbox One. This also causes sound out of sync.
- Xbox One experiences a lot of tearing in the most stressful moments.
- Problems loading some textures on Xbox One. It is necessary to return to the main menu to correct it.
- Unexpected crashes on One / One X.
- I think that D3T has done a job that could be improved (as happened with Mafia II: Definitive Edition or Shenmue HD).


Alan Wake Remastered is now available on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series, and Xbox One worldwide. Learn more about the game by checking out Ule's review.

Alan Wake Remastered is the perfect way for PlayStation 5 users to experience the story of Alan Wake. However, players looking for a refreshing experience might find themselves with a bit too much of the same thing that's been seen in previous versions of the game. At the end of the day, I am recommending this game for what it is over what the remaster offers.
