Even though it’s been 10 years since Alan Wake originally released on Xbox 360 and PC, it’s safe to say that the beloved action-horror title still resonates strongly in the hearts of modern gamers. Not only did the Stephen King-inspired thriller receive positive critical acclaim (the game boasts a critic score of 83 and a user score of 8.2 on review aggregator MetaCritic), but it’s also widely considered as the Finnish studio’s magnum opus.
Thankfully, for those who still remember the profound legacy of Alan Wake‘s pine-scented small-town mystery, we may have some good news for you. That’s right, to commemorate the game’s 10 year anniversary, Alan Wake will soon be playable on Xbox Games Pass for both Xbox One and PC. For those unaware, Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s game subscription service, which allows players to stream an extensive library of over a 100 games, much akin to Netflix.
If you haven’t checked out Remedy’s classic action-horror title yet, now’s just as good a time as any. It truly is a unique and compelling slice of psychological horror well deserving of your time.
