The Long Dark: Tales from the Far Territory

The first paid Expansion for the award-winning survival experience, THE LONG DARK. Explore the vast and mysterious Far Territory, deep in the heart of Great Bear. Extract its dark secrets. Navigate its treacherous Regions. And most of all: strive to survive.

The Long Dark: Tales from the Far Territory

Welcome to the Far Territory
Deep along the spine of Great Bear tracks a steep mountain range that bisects the island.
This is the Far Range, an imposing wall of rock that stands vigilant over Great Bear’s priceless resource riches.
Over the decades, many have tried, few have succeeded to crack open the wealth within these rocks. And mysteries abound. Dark stories told around campfires, about abandoned mines and remote airfields that hold many secrets.
Now, with the aurora blazing across the sky, is the Far Territory ready to surrender its stories? Will you survive long enough to wrest any truths from the rocky grasp.

Deep, brutal, and hauntingly atmospheric, The Long Dark is a survival game done right.
Game Informer

7.3 / 10
The wilderness is satisfyingly unforgiving. The world is fun to explore, but story mode offers a lackluster narrative
God is a Geek
by Dan Murphy
8.5 / 10
In a genre which is suffocating, The Long Dark stands out among the crowd as perhaps the best. Brutal, unforgiving survival wrapped up in a very plausible scenario where beauty kills.
