2 for the price of 1; Alice: Madness Returns to include original Alice
EA has announced that gamers who purchase Alice: Madness Returns this June will receive a special code allowing them to download the original American McGee’s Alice on the platform of their choice. Talk about a double dose of Wonderland goodness.
Included with each console version of Madness Returns is an Online Pass code that can be redeemed to download the classic PC game. One stipulation that comes with the download is that the disc for Madness Returns is required to be in the console in order to access Alice. EA have also announced that the game will be made available via the PlayStation Network for £7.99 and can be purchased through the in-game menu.
If you have yet to experience American McGee’s Alice, this is a great way to get your hands on the game before going into its sequel. There’s no word as to whether this is a straight port of the original PC version or if there will be any changes made for consoles.
While it’s nice to be getting two games for the price of one, there do seem to be an awful lot of hoops to jump through in order to get it. EA is quite familiar with attempting to thwart the sales of used games by offering a one time redeemable Online Pass with new copies of games, giving players access to its online features. Now they appear to be broadening the content.
Is it a smart move? Do you have any interest at all in the original Alice? Let us know in the comments.
