📝 Beschreibung / Über das Spiel


    Bright light illuminates the afterthimmel. The wind rages beyond the thin walls of your wooden hut. In the distance a wolf howls. You look at the meager supplies in your backpack and wish you the days when there was still electricity. How long will you survive?


    The Long Dark is a thought-provoking mix of exploration and survival, with individual players thinking for themselves and exploring a vast, frozen, wilderness after a geomagnetic storm. There are no zombies - just you, the cold and all the threats Mother Nature can muster.


    The episodes-based story mode WINTERMUTE by The Long Dark begins with two of a total of five episodes that form the first season.

    In Episode 1: "Do not leave" the Buschpilot Will Mackenzie (player character) and Dr. Astrid Greenwood separated after her plane crashed after a mysterious flash of light in the sky in the North Canadian wilderness. Mackenzie fights for survival and finds the small town of Milton, in which the extent of this silent apocalypse becomes aware.

    In Episode 2: "Diffuse Light", Mackenzie's search for Astrid leads him deeper into the wintry wilderness. A mysterious fur hunter might help finding Astrid. Is he trustworthy?

    The first two episodes of WINTERMUTE offer about 15 hours of playtime. The episodes 3 to 5 are included in the purchase price of the game and will be released free of charge as soon as they are released.
    With the voices of Jennifer Hale, Mark Meer, David Hayter and Elias Toufexis (episode 3) and the music of Cris Velasco.


    The survival mode is a free, exploration-based sandbox mode that has been refined for almost three years in the early access version of the game.
    No endless tips! The game encourages players to think independently. The necessary information is provided but never the answers themselves. You must earn the right to survive.
