The Long Dark Episode Four: Fury, Then Silence Trailer
The fourth episode features new characters, over an hour of cinematics, and about 10 hours of new survival gameplay. The story takes players to a new remote region in the Canadian wilderness where the main protagonist, Mackenzie, finds himself in a predicament at an isolated prison complex.
A majority of Episode Four was developed during the pandemic, according to developer Hinterland. “Within our small team, we’ve experienced the highs of births and new life, and the deep lows of losing people we love. And all the while, we pushed forward to tell the story of Mackenzie and Astrid, the quiet apocalypse, the wintery wilderness of Great Bear, and the mysterious aurora in the sky, all to the best of our ability. The parallels between our isolation and fears of the outside world and Mackenzie’s experience in the episode were not lost on us.”
Episode Four: Fury, Then Silence is available now for The Long Dark on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, as well as for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
