Remedy Entertainment has announced a massive 90 percent discount sale on Steam for thriller Alan Wake will run from May 13 through May 15. Unfortunately, the circumstances around the sale are less than ideal: Remedy will be pulling the game from digital and retail stores on May 15 because of a music licensing issue.

On its forums, Remedy says that it is working on relicensing the music for Alan Wake, but there's no timeframe available. The 90 percent off sale will cover both the base game, as well as all of its DLC and Alan Wake's American Nightmare. Fortunately, American Nightmare will remain on sale in stores after May 15.

Alan Wake was first released in 2010, and it received broad acclaim for its psychological horror-infused plot. If you're even vaguely interested in the game, it might be worth picking up for a future playthrough before it is removed from digital storefronts (including Xbox) on May 15. At just a few bucks after its 90 percent discount, it'd be hard to justify not adding it to your Steam library.

The sale starts on May 13.
