The Long Dark’s Early Access Trailer Challenges You to Survive in the Wild

on September 23, 2014 7:10 AM

While zombie survival games like DayZ or others like Rust put players through the stress of fending off others, the greatest threats in Hinterland Games’ The Long Dark are the elements themselves: food, animals, the wild, and most of all, the looming cold.

Accompanying this week’s release of the Early Access version of The Long Dark on Steam, a new trailer has released giving players a six-minute take on the open wildlife sandbox and terrain waiting for players of the much-anticipated survival title. Featuring hunger, thirst, animals, and imminent winter waiting to take a player’s life away, the trailer shows that surviving in The Long Dark will be anything but easy.

The Long Dark is now available in an Early Access Alpha build on Steam for PC and Mac OSX, with the full version of the game currently in development.
