This year, The Long Dark will have its first paid add-on - in season pass format

For one thing, The Long Dark has yet to release the final, fifth chapter of the story mode.
On the other hand, in the eight years since launching in Early Access, the game has been greatly transformed and much bigger than planned, and no extra money has been asked for it (unless you count the soundtrack).That's about to change.
The developers announced that within a year The Long Dark will receive its first paid add-on.
The details are as follows: DLC is aimed at the survival mode.The distribution scheme is similar to the seasonal subscription: within 15-18 months, DLC owners will receive different new content on a regular basis.Among the additions - new regions, mechanics, tests, and so on.The seasonal subscription will be available for purchase in pieces - it will be divided into three or four additions.
For those who decide not to buy the DLC, will release free updates, but they are usually less than paid.Episode 5 story mode will still be released as a free update for all owners of The Long Dark.The Long Dark developers admit: after eight years of free content updates they wanted to make the game more \"financially self-sufficient\", so we decided to prepare a season pass.
In addition, in recent months a lot of effort was spent to ensure that the story mode and survival mode can be developed separately - because of a number of decisions in the early stages of production the modes are too dependent on each other.
Now that they've been separated, Survival is easier to update, and updates should come out faster.Finally, there's a reshuffle in the Hinterland team.
Studio founder Raphael van Lierop is no longer in charge of developing The Long Dark.
In his place, Katie Sorrell has taken over - she has personally handled the design of every region, starting with Reflective Valley, and remains the lead designer for all chapters of the story campaign.
Van Lirop finishes the script for the fifth episode and begins to work \"on the next ten years of Hinterland\"-that is, the studio's next big project.The fifth episode of The Long Dark story campaign is scheduled for release during 2023.
According to van Lierop, it is likely that there will be no significant news about the last chapter in 2022.
