Alan Wake and his bright-ass flashlight join the Xbox and PC Game Pass library next week

Ten years ago, Remedy Entertainment gave us one of the finest examples of video game storytelling, a Stephen King-like thriller drenched in David Lynch-like surrealism. Unlike books or film, video games usually show their age a decade later. However, this game still stands tall as a beloved cult classic because of its impeccable approach to narrative and atmosphere.
Alan Wake turns 10 today, which is sure to have many of you (myself included) thinking "Goddamn, has 10 years really flown by that fast?" It has, but there's a new opportunity to play Alan Wake for anyone who's feeling all nostalgic. Alan Wake will be added to Game Pass for both Xbox and PC on May 21. It's playable on Xbox One through Xbox 360 backward compatibility. (And, if Game Pass isn't your thing, Alan Wake is only $1.50 on Steam right now.)
