The Long Dark release date and due to hit Early Access soon

Wintry survival sim The Long Dark is coming to #Linux, Mac and Windows PC via Steam Early Access on 22nd September, developer Hinterland Games has #announced.

While the final release will have a narrative-based campaign, this Early Access version will be limited to the game’s endless Sandbox mode, so players can familiarise themselves with its survival-based systems. Players will have to hunt for food, scavenge for supplies and avoid predators all while monitoring such vitals as their calorie intake, temperature, fatigue, hunger and thirst.

The Long Dark is being developed by folks who worked on Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Far Cry 3, God of War, Mass Effect, League of Legends, Knights of the Old Republic and The Unfinished Swan.

The Early Access edition of The Long Dark can be pre-ordered for $19.99 (about £12) from its official site.

      Soon I will imagine. The Long Dark is still in Early Access and as with most games of such nature, PC releases seem to come first. But Linux will happen, soon.
