We’re really excited to launch Crossroads Elegy, Episode 3 of our Wintermute story mode on 22nd October, free of charge for all owners of The Lengthy Dark.
It is been almost 10 months because we released the Redux version of our Episodes One particular and Two, so we know fans are curious to know additional about the story of Mackenzie and Astrid.
What occurred to Astrid as soon as she escaped the convicts in Milton? How does her story overlap with Mackenzie’s? Will we come across out additional about the mysterious hardcase, and her factors for risking the plane ride to remote Good Bear Island? What is taking place in Perseverance Mills, and why is she so desperate to get there?
The Lengthy Dark is identified for becoming 1 of the most rigorous survival sandbox games out there on PlayStation four, but it also has a thoughtful narrative mode.
In Episode 3, we get to see a distinct side of survival — Astrid is not only tending to her personal survival desires, but, as a medical doctor, she has to make difficult choices about how far she’ll go to assistance other folks survive.
She’ll have to use her capabilities as a medical doctor to diagnose survivors, and treat their injuries and afflictions if she’s going to hold them alive. She’ll discover the vast wilderness of Pleasant Valley, browsing for the survivors of a terrible plane crash in the mountains. And she’ll tangle with our most risky wildlife but — the Timberwolves — who operate in packs and hunt you mercilessly unless you can break their morale.
It is how the player’s survival options interweave with the story of the survivors in Thomson’s Crossing that tends to make Episode 3 a exclusive game inside the survival genre — a definitely narrative survival practical experience that builds on a foundation of sandbox gameplay more than 5 years in the generating.
In Episodes One particular and Two, we discovered additional about Good Bear, the mysterious Aurora, and skilled the initial components of the Wintermute story from Mackenzie’s point of view. We hope you get pleasure from stepping into Dr. Astrid Greenwood’s boots in Episode 3: Crossroads Elegy. See you in the Quiet Apocalypse!
