Kasabian Sign on for Alan Wake Follow Up

Platforms: Microsoft Xbox 360

British indie-rockers Kasabian are to feature in the new Alan Wake's American Nightmare from Remedy. The original Alan Wake, which was released in 2010, featured several artists including Roy Orbison and David Bowie and the latest standalone Xbox Live title is set to continue this by featuring Kasabian.

Also set to feature in Alan Wake's American Nightmare is songwriter and Mercury-Prize winner Ed Harcourt. “Having already worked with Remedy on their previous Alan Wake title we were more than happy to continue our relationship with them and I believe that our combined ability to select and supervise moody tracks for Remedy’s upcoming action-adventure will result in a better gameplay experience.” said Andreas Olsson, VP Sales at EMI Music Publishing Scandinavia.

The music in the original Alan Wake title was one of the better elements of the first game thanks to the excellent soundtrack which added to the overall creepy feeling of the game. So far at least it looks like Remedy are following suit by picking out some decent, recognisable tunes to book end chapters.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is written as a stand-alone game that anyone can pick up and play even if they have never played the original game. Fans already familiar with the Alan Wake universe will find themselves right at home though, as it includes plenty of optional content to take the story forward. In addition to the game’s story mode, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare also introduces 'Fight Till Dawn', a new, fast-paced, over-the-top arcade mode that offers fresh enemy designs, new weapons, online leaderboards and plenty of unlockable rewards.

No release date for Alan Wake's American Nightmare has been confirmed however as confirmed earlier the game is set to feature in the XBLA House Party which is due to start on February 15th.
