Remedy celebrates completed Alan Wake with new trailer, party

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.
