Alice: Madness Returns
Alice: Madness Returns To Include First Alice Game For Free
Written By
View author's profile

Alice Madness: Returns creator American McGee has told CVG that the game will include a free code to download the original Alice game to play on your console, as well as revealing plans for further DLC to be offered in the future.

"There will be DLC in the form of dresses that the player can download and Alice can wear," said McGee. "Those dresses come with special abilities and enhance how you play through the game."

Of course, that's not all though, as McGee went on to explain: "There's also going to be pretty significant release which is the original Alice brought over to the consoles so that a person who's purchased Madness Returns [new] gets a download code and is able to bring Alice 1 onto their console and play through the entire original game alongside playing Madness Returns."

Alice: Madness Returns owners will then be able to play American McGee's Alice for absolutely nowt... if they buy it new, of course. Sounds like a fabulous offer to us. Alice: Madness Returns is out on June 14th, 2011.

Wow, the fact that it's going to give the first Alice game for free just made this game a day one purchase for me, even though I was probably going to pre-order it anyway

Hmmm, good marketing. That now confirms a preorder from me when I was kinda on the fence. Nice one. Really hope one of those dresses is the original Alice dress. That would be cool.

Yeas! Allways wanted to try the first game, but never had a chance. Good thing that good old games aren't just forgotten in the dustbin.

Very cool. I wish other developers would do the same!! How hard can it really be to give us a little extra for all our hard-earned money?

@11 Sarcasm?

McGee's games have always been pretty fun (xcept for LA), wouldn't mind getting the Grimm franchise on the arcade, even if it is just a ripoff of Katamari Damacy.

Actually, I had not heard of the this game at all or the first one until I saw a trailer for this game not long ago! This looks super interesting tho, will get this for sure and I'm pretty sure my gf will get it too. And to get the first one as a free bonus, awsome!!

Sorry this might sound dumb but do you have to pre-order the game to get the 1st game for free?

I wish more games would include the 1st game (or the whole series) especially games that were never on consoles before (e.g Crysis 2 having Crysis 1 bundled with it).

Anyone knows if it will be an HD remake or just straight PC import to consoles? Just asking, because if it's the latter, controls might be might clunky:-P Hoping for the best though.

As a side note, kind of pointless to have dresses with abilities after most ppl have beat the game already... Unless they want us to hold off on playing it:-P

I was already beyond stoked about this game (been waiting years for this ever since beating the first game) and now that it will actually COME with the original, I am completely set to buy this day one.

This is great news to me, when I looked at the second Alice I thought it looked amazing so I bought a copy of the first one on the PC for £10... Glad I did, I love it, controls are too annoying for me on the PC though. Now I get to play with ease in two months time

Been using the name 'Jaberwokky' since the first game came out back in the day. Looking forward to paying respects to both of the games when the sequel finally drops.

@38: It's called American McGee's Alice. Read the article, it helps avoid those kind of questions.

Playing through American McGee's Alice and it kinda sucks. Graphics leave something to desire and the controls are off-kilter. Jumping is a pain and climbing up ledges is very frustrating. If you're going to buy it and don't really care about the Gamerscore associated with it, buy it used.

Soooo bummmbed! I pre-ordered because I played the org Alice back on PC and was so excited to have the chance to run through it on console... It was really glitchy back in the day; a real pain. Great game, fun to play (by old PC gaming standards)!

This is not a re-formatted game for Xbox or hdmi, it is the exact game from PC just carried over! So it is still a pain in the a** to play! Controls are cumbersome, graphics are pedestrian at best....

Big disappointment!

The first game was crazy odd to play on the Xbox however when playing upon its first release it was very fun. Though you can easily tell the controls were meant for a mouse and keyboard.
