Quantum Break released this week on with a free bundled digital copy of Alan Wake for all Xbox One users. Alan Wake was recently made available through the Backwards Compatibilty service, so the Xbox 360 game is ready to play on the latest generation of Microsoft console. The game was bundled with all its post-launch DLC, namely ‘The Signal’ and ‘The Writer’, meaning that the new owners of the game have also gained some normally paid-for content at no extra cost. Therefore Remedy have decided to enable anyone to download all Alan Wake DLC free of charge from the Xbox Marketplace whether you are playing on an Xbox One or Xbox 360.
Both sets of DLC are set after the events of the main game, so it would be wise to finish that before starting either of the two episodes. Furthermore you can download Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (which you do still have to pay for I’m afraid) for both systems too that further carries on Wake’s story but in a more condensed version.
When originally released for Xbox 360, the first DLC ‘special’ The Signal was also free for anyone that bought the game new. Anyone else would have to pay for the pleasure of carrying the story on though as usual, for the starting price of $20. The Writer was however a paid-experience for all but for the much more reasonable price of $6.99. Each pack has received various discounts and offers in the years leading up to Quantum Break’s release.
Remedy have already spoke about a potential Alan Wake 2, teasing that many hints will be hidden within Quantum Break. In order to get up to speed with the depressed writer’s terrifying story then make sure to grab all Alan Wake DLC free along with the game itself of course.
