Alan Wake is Back for Purchase Again

After being removed in early May 2017 due to licensing issues, Alan Wake is back for purchase once again. It was a goal for Remedy since the game was removed to have it made available again, but no timeline was given. This typically takes any amount of time whether that's removing songs from of the game or negotiating inclusion for the future. It would appear that they've done a fast job of getting it back, perhaps due to an influx of sales with it being taken down. That aside, it's nice that gamers will once again be able to access this Xbox gem for Xbox 360 or Xbox One through Xbox Backwards Compatibility. I checked a couple of the Xbox Marketplace locations (US, Canada, UK) with it being available for all of them.

That being said, it's currently not back on Steam at the current moment since I took a look there as well. If it's added back to Steam as well which I imagine it will be, I'll update. Alan Wake is well worth your time and I heavily suggest checking it out if you've missed it. The current noted price is $19.99 or £14.99 depending on your region.
