Whether you have played and reviewed the first two Episodes already, or are completely new to The Long Dark, you can still jump in and start Episode Three as Astrid right away. With the release of Crossroads Elegy, all Wintermute Episodes are now unlocked and playable.
In this new episode, you will learn more about the story of the Quiet Apocalypse.
“We’re very excited to share this new part of the story of Mackenzie and Astrid, the mysteries of the aurora, and what’s happening on Great Bear in the midst of this (potentially?) world-changing disaster,” said the game’s developers in their latest Dev Diary.
While Episode One and Two were presented from Mackenzie’s point of view, now in Episode Three, the story is told through Astrid’s eyes. Episode three picks up the story at the moment after Astrid and Mackenzie got separated in Milton at the opening of Episode One.
Astrid is rescued by an enigmatic stranger and now, facing the blizzards of Pleasant Valley, she has to use all of her skills as a doctor to help the survivors she encounters while trying to find Mackenzie. Will she succeed and also get closer to the mystery that's taking them to Perseverance Mills?
