Radeon releases dedicated AMD Software update for Alan Wake 2

AMD releases Special Edition AMD driver for Alan Wake 2

Alan Wake 2 is launching on PC tomorrow, and it is due to be one of the most graphically impressive, and demanding releases of 2023. To prepare for the release of the game, AMD has released a dedicated Radeon graphics driver for the game. Strangely, this driver is not a AMD Software 23.10.3. It’s a dedicated driver branch that is specifically for Alan Wake 2 players.

It is likely that AMD’s driver team were unable to finalise their Radeon Software 23.10.3 driver release ahead of Alan Wake 2’s launch. Instead of allowing the game to launch without Radeon driver support, AMD has released a dedicated driver to tide gamers over. Below are the release notes for this driver, and a download link.
