What Are The DLC Packs In The Game?

The first of the two DLC packs is called The Signal.

This content sees Alan return to Bright Falls, however, something is not quite right and a brand new mystery unfolds for the game’s protagonist.

Following The Signal is the second DLC pack, titled The Writer.

It once again follows Alan as he struggles to free himself from the consequences of the main game and adds another layer to an already intriguing story.

Finding the DLC packs in Alan Wake Remastered isn’t immediately obvious and has caused some confusion amongst players.

To do so, players will need to head down to the “Episodes” tab on the main screen. Upon clicking it and selecting their difficulty, players will see all of the episodes they’ve previously completed, as well as “Special 1: The Signal” and “Special 2: The Writer”. Clicking either of these options will then allow you to access the content.
