The Long Dark pits players against the wilderness in icy northern Canada amid unnaturally cold weather. After crash-landing, you're tasked with surviving the harsh realities of mother nature, fighting against the cold and wild animals as you hunt, fish, and generally try to stay alive. In addition to its signature survival mode, The Long Dark offers episodic content where you have to make tough decisions that impact other characters.
Today, developer Hinterland Games announced the next update to the game. "Errant Pilgrim" not only adds a new region, but brings plenty of tweaks to keep you coming back for more. You can take a look at everything coming to the game soon in the video below.
Errant Pilgrim seems to focus on weapons this time around. It'll focus on gunsmithing and introduce items like Ammunition Workbench. Players have been asking for this for a while now so it's great to see that it's been added to the game.
