Digital Standard Edition

Surprisingly, the price of the Standard Edition of Alan Wake 2 is actually 59.99$ on Consoles and 45.49$ on PC, in an era where most Triple-A games start at 70$. Maybe this is due to the fact that the developers don’t have to push a physical release and can use that to reduce the price of the digital edition.

The standard edition only comes with a digital license of Alan Wake 2, but you can still get some pre-order bonuses.

  • Pre-order bonuses for the standard edition include the Ornate Revolver Skin for Alan.
  • You will also get an Oh Deer Diner Sweater for Saga, which can be used as a different costume.
  • A Survival Resources Pack for Saga is also included in the pre-order bonuses, which will help you out in the early game.
  • The resources pack includes a Rocket Flare, First Aid Kit, Painkillers, and a Coffee Mug Charm.
  • This Coffee Mug Charm can actually protect Saga from that final deadly hit, but it does break upon use.

Digital Deluxe Edition

Starting at twenty dollars more expensive than the standard edition, the Digital Deluxe Edition can be purchased for a price of 79.99$ on Consoles and 63.69$ on PC. It should be noted that Alan Wake 2 can only be bought using the Epic Games Store on PC. The pre-order bonuses are the same for the standard and deluxe editions, but there are extra goods that you get here for paying a premium.

The Best Alan Wake 2 Edition In My Opinion

My Purchase of The Digital Deluxe Edition (Image Captured by Us)

I think you should really spend the extra 20 bucks and get the Digital Deluxe Edition of Alan Wake 2. The additional skins are cool, and you’ll also get the DLC Expansion Pass. The DLCs might be priced at a higher price-point later, so getting the expansion pass early means you’ll have access to all of the goods Remedy adds to Alan Wake 2 day 1.

It is also really sad to see no physical disc edition launch of Alan Wake 2, which is really going to have an impact on the overall sales. I really hope that Remedy decides to release a disc version later, which comes bundled with the DLCs as well.

That does it for my guide on the different editions of Remedy’s latest Triple-A release. The Voice Actors and Cast list of Alan Wake 2 is really exciting. It shows some amazing actors from Remedy’s other big projects making a return for Alan Wake 2.
