Microsoft has announced that Xbox 360 thriller Alan Wake will hit European shelves a week earlier than planned.

The game had been due to launch here on 21st May. However, according to a press release which includes not only the phrase "raise the bar" but perennial classic "true cinematic experience", it's now arriving on the 14th.

"Fans in the UK have been crying out to get their hands on Alan Wake since it was first announced and we're thrilled to be able to deliver it to them early," said Xbox bossman Stephen McGill.

Alan Wake sees you playing as Alan Wake, a crime writer investigating the mysterious disappearance of his wife, Mrs Wake. It all looks very spooky and good, as you can see for yourself via the old gamepage.
