I just found out that the first DLC episode for Alan Wake has been released on Xbox.com

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/ga...0805?cid=SLink (http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/games/offers/0ccf0001-0000-4000-8000-00004d530805?cid=SLink)

In this first downloadable content pack we find Wake facing a threat unlike anything he's ever encountered before -- and yet one he's intimately familiar with. In order to make sense of it all, he must follow the Signal. There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see www.xbox.com/live/accounts (http://www.xbox.com/live/accounts).

I thought it was meant to be released on 27th of July? In order to download it I'd need a Prepaid Code but I haven't received mine yet from Microsoft. When are the codes going the be emailed to me?

Apart from the DLC itself, the achievements have also been updated:

As far as I know it's still July 27th. Time to go investigating.

Edit: It's still the 27th. I have no idea when the codes are getting e-mailed. Probably the day of the 27th.

brilliant, thanks for the update!
These achievements dont seem as though they are going to be a struggle and not too many collectables (Unless there are 300 cardboard standees!)
Should be enjoyable, only 9 more days, cant wait!

I got a code with my game, what do you mean you have to wait for Microsoft to E-mail them?

The code that comes in the box with the game is one that allows Remedy/Microsoft confirm that you have the game and then send you a redeemable code that lets you get it for free. Think of it as a coupon for a coupon for something. xD

However, you still can't use the code that came with the game until the 27th correct?

Can't wait, eight (8) days to go, just hope they send the codes the same day and don't get overwhelmed by the amount of people who will download this. Good post mate :)

Good luck to you, the chests aren't too bad, but missing one thermos can be a real bitch. hopefully you find it quickly.

Got them both, luckily the one Thermos and the one Chest I was missing were both on the chapter 3 ' On The Run ' so thanks :) Felt sad that I got all 1,000 but then thought only a few days til The Signal, so excited heh. Couple of days to complete that then off to Egypt
