Will Alan Wake finally make sense? New DLC chapter "The Signal" available today

Unless you helped write the game's script or something, you were probably left with a LOT of unanswered questions at the end of Alan Wake. Where was our protagonist trapped in the final cutscene? What exactly was the clicker, again? Who was Agent Nightingale, and why did he have such a stick up his ass?

Today, at least one or two of those incredibly loose plot threads could be tied up by the release of Alan Wake's first DLC chapter, "The Signal." Or made more maddeningly mysterious than ever, if this launch trailer and set of screenshots are any (vague) indication.

Luckily, if you bought the game new, you won't have to shell out any extra cash to find out – your copy came with a code insert that can now be redeemed online.

If you bought the game used, the price is 560 Microsoft points, or $7.00.

    Hm maybe if Remedy could of added maybe a few new weapons to replace that trusty yet boring revolver? Or even better ,let us play as Barry with his "EYE OF MORDOR".

    Alan Wake really isn't a good game. Obsolete game design, repetitive environments, cookie-cutter characters, a pretentious story, etc. Even though I could get this DLC for free, I won't waste any more time on this.

    Too much combat, virtually no story. I'd be happy if it just gave more questions, but it doesn't even do that; hopefully the next DLC will be better. The pacing's still a little bit off too.

    Played through this earlier today. I'm still confused.

    That's not a Big Daddy, it's a character from the game.

    Are you implying that yours will be the first, last and only comment on this article for all time? Wrong!
