The Long Dark is a, frankly, amazing survival game for Xbox One and PC.
Hitting Steam early access in 2014, and Xbox One game preview in 2015, The Long Dark is finally ready for the prime time with the first instalment of its episodic story mode, dubbed Wintermute.
The Long Dark takes place in the ice-blasted north of Canada, where a geological catastrophe has created unnaturally cold weather. Crash landing in a landscape with procedurally generated creatures, loot, and resources, it’s up to you to survive the cold for as long as possible, moving throughout the game’s sizable maps in search of shelter, firewood, and food.
Seeing The Long Dark grow into what it is today has been nothing short of delightful, and even in early access, the game has given me some of my strongest and fondest memories of gaming on Xbox One. The launch trailer for The Long Dark is officially here, and it’s as sobering and mysterious as the game itself.
