The most popular electronic band the world over is getting it’s due as Depeche Mode is set to be featured in the new DLC for Alan Wake. “The Darkest Star” will set the tone for the psychological action thriller from Remedy Entertainment. “The Darkest Star” was licensed exclusively for use in the DLC.

“Depeche Mode is a great fit for the upcoming Alan Wake DLC that links strongly with the game’s storyline. Having consulted with Remedy on their previous DLC “The Signal” for which we provided the song “No, I Don’t Remember” by Swedish singer-songwriter Anna Ternheim, we are thrilled to once again supply fitting and relevant music to one of the top-developers in the Nordic region.” said Andreas Olsson, VP Sales at EMI Music Publishing Scandinavia.

“The music of Depeche Mode adds to the atmosphere and feel of the thriller. It is awesome to see great music and gameplay come together to tell an epic conclusion to the story. The song is so fitting to the scene in Alan Wake that every time I play it, it makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. The new DLC and the song really complement each other, and I hope everyone will enjoy the thrill.” said Oskari Häkkinen, Head of Franchise Development at Remedy.
