To mark the five-year anniversary of The Long Dark, Hinterland has revealed Episode Three: Crossroads Elegy, it's to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on October 22, 2019.
Owners of The Long Dark will automatically receive Episode Three: Crossroads Elegy for free. Newcomers to the 3.3 million unit selling narrative and survival experience will find their choice well made, as any new purchase of The Long Dark not only includes Crossroads Elegy, but all previously released content and episodes in the Wintermute series, as well as Survival Mode and its many updates. Notably, fans of Survival Mode will be treated to yet another free update this December, details of which will be revealed at a later time.
Steam players can also travel backward in time and access all major previous updates made to The Long Dark over the past five years from the game’s Time Capsule page, so that survivors may experience previous updates as they were originally released.
The Long Dark challenges players to survive in an expansive, frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a mysterious geomagnetic disaster. All technology has been rendered inert, bringing humanity back to a primal existence and leaving players to face the cold, the expansive wilderness, and all the other threats Mother Nature can muster.
