The Long Dark Hits Steam Early Access
The Long Dark’s Sandbox Mode is now available for purchase on Steam Early Access. The game is a first-person survival simulator set in the northern wilderness after a geomagnetic disaster. You explore a large open world to gather resources while managing several conditions including hypothermia, starvation and dehydration while avoiding injury and illness.
The early access version of the game is $19.99, and includes the survival sandbox mode now, as well as the story mode when it launches. The full release of the game is expected sometime this year.
Players are warned that while the game is stable and playable in its current form, the sandbox is constantly evolving. Features and systems may be added, removed or changed at any time. Purchasing the Early Access version of the game allows the team to polish aspects of the game and gather player feedback to drive development.
