Hinterland Games previously teased that it was preparing The Long Dark’s first paid DLC after the game officially retired from Early Access last year. It completed the current story in the core game, but starting in December, a new expansion pass will launch for the game. Tales from the Far Territory brings new areas to explore, new mysteries to uncover, fresh gameplay features, exciting new gear, and much more. We also finally have a date for the official launch.
Hinterland Games released the latest details on The Long Dark’s Tales from the Far Territory Expansion Pass in a new reveal trailer on November 23, 2022. According to the trailer, the first leg of Tales from the Far Territory will be released via Steam and Epic Games on the PC Store on December 5th, 2022. Console versions of Tales from the Far Territory will be released at a later date.
This marks the beginning of an entirely new journey for The Long Dark, which was previously teased in October. The new DLC takes players into the vastness of Great Bear Island, where a hub region and three new explorable regions await. The December 5 release grants players access to the first region, and additional regions and content will be rolled out later over a 12-month period. The Tales from the Far Territory Expansion Pass gets you $19.99 access to all new content to be released throughout 2023. There will also be many free updates to the game including new game features, equipment and more content.
We really enjoyed The Long Dark’s core experience in our Shacknews review, and it’s extremely exciting to have more of it. With the first part of The Long Dark’s Tales from the Far Territory Expansion Pass coming out in early December, be sure to stay tuned for more updates as they become available right here at Shacknews.
