After quite the wait, The Long Dark Episode 3 has finally arrived! This next chapter in the snowy survival game will give players access to a new region, new gameplay systems, deadly timberwolves, and more!
If you haven’t played The Long Dark, you’re missing out on a very unique survival experience. While many games in the genre have zombies or monsters to contend with, The Long Dark is genuinely about surviving in a harsh environment packed with deadly wildlife and not much in the way of supplies.
Now, The Long Dark Episode 3 — titled ERRANT PILGRIM — is bringing a bunch of new content for the game’s campaign as well as some new additions for Survival Mode.
What’s Coming in The Long Dark Episode 3
Here’s what’s new in ERRANT PILGRIM:
- A new region with a two-part environmental puzzle, featuring multiple industrial buildings and deadly timberwolves.
- A new super-tough Challenge mode inspired by the community that literally none of the devs have managed to beat. (That means it’s probably pretty tough.)
- New gear items, tools, and systems to improve late-game survival.
- Three new feats.
- More than 10 minutes of new music.
- The return of Fluffy.
Of course, this isn’t an all-inclusive list; as noted in a news post on the game’s Steam Community page, The Long Dark will also be doing a whole bunch of tweaks and fixes and adding a few other things that aren’t mentioned here.
You’ll be able to play The Long Dark Episode 3 when it launches sometime in the middle of December 2019. In the meantime, you can buy The Long Dark on sale during the Steam Autumn Sale at the price of $10.19 or your regional equivalent, a 66% discount off of its regular price of $29.99.
