All Articles: American McGee’s Alice
It looks like American McGee didn’t sneak a hit off the Caterpillar’s hookah when he told CVG that American McGee’s Alice would be included with PS3 and Xbox 360 copies of Alice: Madness Returns.
After initially issuing a “no comment,” Electronic Arts has confirmed the first Alice game will be included with Madness Returns as the company’s latest “Project Ten Dollar” bonus. The one-time-use Online Pass will unlock the game within the main menu of Madness Returns, which means it won’t be offered as a separate PSN/XBLA release.
However, those that purchase Alice: Madness Returns on the used market will be able to access Alice by obtaining an Online Pass through the PlayStation Store/Xbox Live Marketplace for $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft Points).
Alice: Madness Returns will be released on June 14.
Yo dawg, I heard you like Alice, so I… nevermind. American McGee had a little exchange with CVG, discussing how a game without multiplayer can achieve the longevity of of the typical modern game. He disclosed that Alice: Madness Returns will have a strong DLC stream flowing throughout its lifespan, such as dresses that will augment Alice’s powers and change how you have to play the game.
However, the most impressive feature, beefing up the game’s content offering, will be the inclusion of its predecessor, American McGee’s Alice, with all console copies of the game. The formerly PC/Mac-only game will be available via a download code given with all copies of the sequel on the PS3 and Xbox 360. There’s no word yet on if it’ll be available to people who didn’t purchase Alice: Madness Returns or if PC buyers will receive the downloadable bonus.
Alice: Madness Returns releases for PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on June 14.
UPDATE: EA has informed Joystiq that they’re not ready to comment on this, saying “Unfortunately, we do not have information in regards to Alice: Madness Returns including the original Alice game.”
