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, the developer announced a new episode that was coming on October 22. You can read the statement from the team below.
However, buried deeper within the post were details about console enhancements.
It's great to see that another game runs at 4K on Xbox One X. It should be the best console port as a result of this. Hopefully, the performance will improve too now that the title employs dynamic resolution.
