The Long Dark is Here!

The Long Dark 1.0 has now launched! 

You should all now be able to use your Steam keys to access Episode One and Episode Two of WINTERMUTE, The Long Dark's story mode. 

We sent Steam Keys out to all backers back in 2014, but if for some reason you lost the email with them or are having other issues collecting your key, please contact us at backers@hinterlandgames.com so we can help you out.

To celebrate the launch, here is the launch trailer, along with a short live-action "visual poem" called Elegy, which we produced to both celebrate the launch, and also support the announcement that The Long Dark is being developed as a film.

 

If you run into technical issues, or would just like to join the discussion about WINTERMUTE, please visit our new Community Hub.

      Hi! This trailer and visual poem is awesome! I'm glad to have this game on GOG. :)

      Mads: I'm more concerned about getting a console download key, though again it seems clear that won't happen. The DRM free download, on the other hand, is more fair to expect and frustrating to not see.

      Alexei: The EU version should be out on PS4 the 8th/Aug.

      I really enjoy having a structure to the game with the story mode. Congratulations for the release!

      Ok, where is the "option of downloading The Long Dark from a variety of DRM-free download services."???

      Or if this is one of those classic "hey we never promised you a console copy!!! we just said "digital"!" deals, which is fine, then I'll chime in with the previous question about DRM free version, as that was explicitly stated as available.

      Any update for those awaiting console version? What should I expect / when should I expect it?

      Any chance of getting a GoG key instead of steam?

      I'm very happy for Hinterland in getting this out, but where are our lockets? Have they been forgotten? I always assumed they'd be in before 1.0.

      Looks brilliant. Gonna have to get my game on with it soon.

      Congrats to everyone on the team for making this far. I can't wait to dive into the story.

      I literally just finished a playthrough of Mass Effect Andromeda. Guess this update answers the question "what do I play next?" :)
