Gamers that enjoy survival scenarios are sure to be interested in the launch of The Long Dark which will be arriving on PlayStation 4 on August 1st, 2017.
Watch the teaser trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the storyline and the two difference experiences which provide a Survivor Mode that offers a non-narrative, open-world survival sandbox where the only goal is to survive for as long as you can.
Together with a story line mode which will be made available as episodes from August 1st with the launch of Episode One: “Do Not Go Gentle,” and Episode Two: “Luminance Fugue”.
Raphael van Lierop Creative Director, Hinterland explains more about what you can expect from the fantastic looking game.
The world is nearly 50 square kilometres (about 20 square miles) of deep forest, frozen hills, cliffs and mountain tops, and all the abandoned man-made structures you’d expect to find: fishing cabins, lighthouses, forestry lookouts, and the occasional remnant of pre-disaster industry. Nothing electrical works, so humans have been knocked down a few links in the food chain. Between blizzards, starvation, bears, and dysentery, you’ll need all your wits and a blend of quick-thinking and long-term planning if you have any hope of surviving.
Inspired by stories like Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, Wintermute is our narrative mode. It’s a five-episode story about bush pilot Will Mackenzie, who along with Dr. Astrid Greenwood, crashes in the middle of the Canadian wilderness in the aftermath of a mysterious geomagnetic disaster. Wintermute builds on our core survival gameplay from Survivor Mode by adding a rich storyline and cast of characters whose trust you’ll need to earn if you want to survive.
