The world of The Long Dark, the brutal first person open world survival game by Hinterland Studios, is about to double in size. Despite still only being available via Steam Early Access, The Long Dark has sold over 250,000 copies and have put an infographic together to celebrate that success. The developers have also hinted at the forthcoming January update that will double the playable world.  

I’m really excited about The Long Dark, it might just be the post apocalyptic survival game I’ve been waiting for. The game centers around the survival and exploration aspects, shying away from running and gunning to force a player to evaluate risks carefully and make sound decisions despite harrowing odds. Your biggest threats are likely to be hypothermia, dehydration and starvation.  The choice to stay put with limited supplies but sufficient shelter or trek out into the unknown pose more cerebral risks than just how to handle a pack of wolves. You can jump in now for $19.99 on Steam to get a taste of the open world sandbox element in the Early Access. A Story Mode will also be included in the full release, and the press release from Hinterland is after the infographic.
