The Long Dark goes physical for consoles

Retail boxed edition to include digital download version and future chapter DLC.

The Long Dark challenges players to survive in an expansive, frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a mysterious geomagnetic disaster. All technology has been rendered inert, bringing humanity back to a primal existence and leaving players to face the cold, the expansive wilderness, and all the other threats Mother Nature can muster. Players engage with the game’s narrative in the episodic WINTERMUTE™ Story Mode and can try their luck with the open-world permadeath Survival Mode, or complete objectives in the standalone Challenge Modes, all while having to monitor their basic needs (warmth, sleep, food, water), fight afflictions (injuries, diseases), and encounter deadly wildlife.

Every retail edition box of The Long Dark will include a code to download the game’s Original Soundtrack (a $7.99 value), as well as a limited edition physical Field Journal. Used by an unnamed survivor on Great Bear Island, this naturalist’s Field Journal includes a map of the Island, as well as plenty of room to log your day’s activities – the perfect companion for any survivor of the Quiet Apocalypse! Additionally, those who purchase the retail edition will automatically have access to the highly-anticipated Episode Three, which will launch before the end of 2018, as well as Episode Four and Episode Five (anticipated to launch in 2019), for no extra cost.

The boxed version of the game for PS4 and Xbox One is available now in retailers across the globe. The Long Dark is also available on Steam, priced at £23.79 / $29.99 / €24.99.
