The Long Dark is a beautiful, first-person, open world-survival simulation video game created by the Canadian company, Hinterland Studios

The Long Dark - 'One Year Anniversary Trailer'

In the game, the player assumes the role of a crash-landed pilot who must survive in the frozen Canadian wilderness after a global (geomagnetic) disaster wipes out most of civilisation.

Despite being an early access game it already provides extremely rewarding gameplay, giving the player a beautiful and haunting world to explore and struggle to survive in. The in-game visuals are exquisite, featuring unique painting-like imagery that gives the game a dreamlike and surreal quality. This ads sharp contrast to the bleak situation the player finds themselves in, having to struggle to survive by scavenging, hunting and keeping warm by campfire, all the while braving the elements and wilds alone, often while being stalked and hunted by wolves.

Players currently have access to a single-player, sandbox mode, with the option to spawn into one of five maps, each with a higher difficulty level. Set to launch in the Spring of 2016, the game will release a story mode which will be presented in the form of an episodic storyline.

The story mode will feature multiple playable characters, brought to life by the stellar voice talent of actors; Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect), Mark Meer (Mass Effect), Elias Toufexis (Deus Ex), and David Hayter (Metal Gear Solid).

The developers have been very attentive to players needs, fixing glitches and bugs very quickly and maintaining social contact with the player base. 

"Our success on Early Access proved there's an audience for a more thoughtful survival experience, and the resources we've been able to invest in the game will help us pursue our ambitions around storytelling as we continue to expand this world. We see a bright future for The Long Dark, and are committed to a long-term relationship with our players".-Raphael van Lierop

Official Teaser Trailer for 'The Long Dark - Story Mode'
