The Long Dark — Episode Four: FURY, THEN SILENCE — Launch Trailer
So, what’s new in Fury, Then Silence?
- New Region, BLACKROCK: Episode Four takes place in a brand new region. Which is all built around Blackrock Mountain. The Penitentiary is the region’s main point of interest. Since it features multiple locations. This includes the Prison Block, the Infirmary, Barracks, etc. But there are also several other locations in the broader region. Including a Substation and a Power Plant. Plus the Steam Tunnels under the prison complex. There is also a three level deep Mine at the foot of Blackrock Mountain in Episode Four.
- New Tool, NOISEMAKER: Blackrock Region is heavily “patrolled” by Timberwolf Packs. The Long Dark’s most dangerous wildlife. The Noisemaker is a mix of Cans, Gunpowder, and Cloth for a fuse. This also serves as a useful obstacle. While being one of the best ways to break Wolfpack morale.
- New Lighting: The lighting model in the game has been completely redone. While making this the best looking episode yet.
- Improved Cinematic Narrative: Episode Four is due to offer Hinterland’s strongest work in cinematic story to date. Character models and animation fidelity also see an upgrade.
Episode Four: Fury, Then Silence is available as a free download. All for existing owners of The Long Dark starting now. Along with support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
