Here's something, at one point, we thought we'd never write: Alan Wake
has passed Microsoft certification and is on track to release May 18. The news comes via Alan Wake's community forums
, where community manager Pete Papadopoulos posted some pictures of the developers celebrating and opening up a bottle of champagne they bought during development, specifically for this occasion. Who knew they even made champagne back then?
Jesting aside, there's some exciting new footage of Alan Wake
-- including a rundown of its setting and combat -- just after the break.
