Studio Hinterland has released another major update for The Long Dark. The DLC was named Hesitant Prospect, and its key innovation was the new Ash Canyon region. The new location is a difficult and treacherous area in which the player will have to navigate a route through rope bridges and an abandoned mine that hides valuable treasures.
The update also introduced two new pieces of equipment: climbing crampons, which help prevent stretching and facilitate movement on thin ice, and a Technical Pack, which increases the weight limit.
- updated Halloween Escape The Darkwalker event called Darkwalker Feat
- endless night option
- interface improvements, including the region selection menu
- elimination of bugs and errors
A year ago, Hinterland announced that it plans to do a sequel to The Long Dark , as well as a full-length film based on the survival. In addition, the studio also wants to start developing a new IP.
