In advance of the Xbox 360 game's release, Alan Wake developer Remedy brings word that the first downloadable add-on episode for the suspenseful adventure will arrive in July. It'll be free, provided you have a new copy of Alan Wake.

Keep your Alan Wake "token card" in a safe place, Xbox 360 owners, because it will let you pick up "The Signal" on July 27. In other words, don't trade that Xbox 360 game in and don't buy it used, lest you miss out on some of that free content. No word yet on how much that downloadable episode might set you back if you don't have a code.
