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 just generally try to stay alive. In addition to its signature survival mode, The Long Dark will also offer episodic content where you'll have to make tough decisions and impact other characters.

The Long Dark has been available on Xbox One for quite some time now, but a physical edition is launching on September 4, 2018. Usually smaller Xbox One experiences don't get physical editions, but The Long Dark is a welcome exception. If you were holding out on playing it, or want to supplement your catalog with a disc, be sure to check this game out.
