PSA: You only have today to buy Alan Wake before it’s pulled from digital stores

Alan Wake will be pulled from digital storefronts later this evening, giving gamers scant hours to buy the title before that happens.

A number of songs used in the title are facing expiring licenses, including the likes of David Bowie’s Space Oddity and songs by Poets of the Fall (performed as the in-game band Old Gods of Asgard), meaning Remedy can no longer used them in-game. Remedy won’t be patching the music out, instead opting to potentially re-license the songs as they’re integral to the experience.

With the licenses expiring on 15 May, that means gamers have scant hours to purchase the title if they haven’t already. You can grab Alan Wake here on Steam for 90% off, with three packages on offer:

  • Alan Wake base game: $2.99 USD
  • Alan Wake base game plus digital bonuses: $3.49 USD
  • Alan Wake, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare base games plus digital bonuses: $3.99 USD

You can also grab it for Xbox 360 here, keeping in mind it’s backwards compatible on Xbox One.

Remedy has assured gamers that those who’ve already purchased the title will not lose access to it at any time.

We reviewed Alan Wake here — and it goes without saying its one of Stevivor’s most-loved titles.
