It may be summer in Canada now, but The Long Dark is cooling things down in July with the Winter's Embrace update to their Canadian survival simulation. From June 29th until July 31st, Hinterland Studio are dropping the temperature in The Long Dark, meaning you'll need to work harder to survive. They're also permanently adding some new treats to celebrate Canada Day.

GeForce Now asks developers to opt-in before streaming their games

It's been a rough start for GeForce Now. Since leaving beta back in February, we've watched publisher after publisher remove their games from Nvidia's fledgeling streaming service. In an attempt to bring a bit of stability back to their shelves, Nvidia are now asking developers to opt-in before adding GeForce Now support - making their catalogue a little more reliable by only offering streaming support…

The Long Dark developers talk episode four timeline and recommit to modding tools

Hinterland Studio's snowy Canadian survival 'em up has had a long journey indeed. The Long Dark started as a sandbox survival game yonks back in 2014 and has since added a story mode, given the entire story a redux, and continually added other updates. The work's far from done yet, and Hinterland have published a new developer update to assure players they're making progress on…

Nvidia didn’t ask permission to include The Long Dark on GeForce Now

Seems that Nvidia have gone and put their foot in it again with their cloud streaming service GeForce Now. This time, they've failed to ask Hinterland Studio to include their game The Long Dark in the library. In return, Hinterland have asked for it to be removed from the service. This follows several other games being removed from GeForce Now, with some publishers pulling their…

Fluffy the wolf is coming back to The Long Dark in its next Survival Mode update

The time of year has arrived where I continually look out my window hoping for a permanent blanket of snow the way holiday movies always promised me there would be. As usual, it's boring and bleak out there and I look to games like The Long Dark to escape the drabness of my actual surroundings. Nothing says holiday cheer like building a fire of twigs…

The Long Dark story mode continues in episode 3 today

The third episode of icy survival sandbox The Long Dark's story mode arrived today. Crossroads Elegy switches protagonists, putting us in the hiking boots of the doctor we were searching for in the first two episodes. Handy thing to be in the icepocalypse, a doctor. More useful than a pilot without a plane. Here, see a wee bit of Astrid Greenwood's story in the launch…

The Long Dark launches its remastered first two episodes

The Long Dark's frozen apocalypse is just a little bit nicer to survive through this week, as Hinterland Studio have launched their 'Wintermute Redux' update for the game. After putting plans for a third episode of its story-driven main campaign on hold, they opted to overhaul what was already there. As detailed here, the story now plays out entirely in first-person with fully voiced and…

The Long Dark episode 3 delayed

The third episode of survive 'em up The Long Dark's story mode Wintermute will not arrive in December as planned, developers Hinterland have announced, though the revamped 'Redux' versions of the first two should hit next month. The reason for the delay is good news, really: they've picked up new team members and a 36-camera motion capture setup from recently-closed studio Capcom Vancouver and want…

The Long Dark episode 3 howling into December

The third episode of snowy survival sandbox The Long Dark's story campaign is due to launch in December, developers Hinterland Studio announced last night, alongside revamped versions of its first two. Hinterland are making the opening chapters less linear, see, to reflect the planned structure of episode 3 - and address some criticism. Our episode 2 review in particular took issue with the linear quest…

The Long Dark adds new wilderness to explore, manual cooking and haunted computers

Frostbitten survival adventure The Long Dark is one of the best in the genre, so says our boy Adam. On top of offering its own uncompromising vision of humanity pushed to the brink (all without a single zombie, alien or robot), it now has a steadily evolving main story arc that's being released one episode at a time. While today's free Vigilant Flame update doesn't…

The Long Dark gets fixes aplenty in string of patches

Before Pip sashayed down the RPS treehouse ladder (it can be done, trust me - she's magnificent) and into the weekend, she left a series of Post-it® notes highlighting a string of patches released for The Long Dark [official site] since the singleplayer survive 'em up left early access and launched this week. Having licked the spilt jam off the notes and removed the Derek…

We’ve rounded up some recommendations - both general tips and some newly added…

The Long Dark launches its biggest update of the year

It seems only fitting that icy survival sandbox The Long Dark [official site] should launch its biggest update of the year two days before the solstice. Days round my way are now below seven hours and mercy me, I'm so excited to reach the longest dark and pass on through. The 'Resolute Outfitter' update has added a new world area, a desolate land of ice…

The Long Dark Adds Cabin Fever & Sandbox Challenges

One of the most wonderful things about The Long Dark [official site] is that it seems to affect different people in different ways. Take John, for example. He loves it, and has written about why on more than a few occasions. Alice, on the other hand, found she'd taken its harsh survival sandbox as far as she could pretty quickly. I fall somewhere in between…

The Long Dark Story Mode Delayed By Further Additions

Our John is real into the sandbox mode of Early Access survive 'em up The Long Dark [official site], but while I dig its frozen setting I'm not really into surviving for survival's sake myself. So I was jazzed about December's news that The Long Dark's story mode would be coming in spring. Alas, I have to let myself down easy - breathe, Alice, and…

The Long Dark’s Story Mode Gets First Trailer

The Long Dark [official site] is one of our favourite survival games. John has been playing it on a regular basis and enjoying his treks through the cold wilderness a great deal, despite the daft difficulty levels, which either see him starving to death within minutes of a gargantuan feast, or present no real challenge at all. That he has returned to the game so…

Longer, Darker: The Long Dark’s New Region And More

I played The Long Dark [official site] for eighteen minutes then uninstalled it and will not return. My character skirted the shores of a frozen lake, scavenged supplies from huts, dodged wolves on the frozen ice, admired the views, then settled down in a cabin on an island to, I assumed, get smashed then top themselves. It seemed a natural conclusion in such a wonked…
