The Long Dark gets another big upgrade to the survival mode

By - | Views: 13,040

Hinterland Studio has released another free upgrade to their game The Long Dark, this time focusing on the survival mode. Lots of other plans have also been outlined for the game in 2022, including the studio setting up a team focused on modding.

Some bigger changes have been announced too, such as paid updates to the game to make the big updates more sustainable for their studio and there's talk of splitting the game up between story and survival. That doesn't mean they will sell them separately and the change might be invisible to players and more about how they structure the development of it.

New features in this update include:

  • New to Survival! Blackrock Region added to Survival Mode. It connects to Pleasant Valley via a Transition zone, and to Timberwolf Mountain via a cave system.
  • New to Survival! The Noisemaker from Episode Four is now available for crafting and use in Survival Mode. Note that the Blueprint unlocks after you find your first Noisemaker, currently only discoverable in Blackrock Region.
  • New to The Long Dark! The Ballistic Vest. It’s the first piece of protective gear in the game and offers strong defense against physical harms from wildlife attacks.
  • Various quality-of-life improvements, including making Crampons repairable, and a new piece of soundtrack music, along with many bug fixes.

I think I've explained the position pretty well here. As I say, if you can't understand this, you either don't understand the industry issues (such as redistribution rights, copyright, etc), or you're being deliberately obstinate because you feel your "rights" are being infringed, or some such.

You compared it to

QuoteThis would be like Netflix just putting a Disney film on their service and then people getting mad at Disney when they pull it. Sure, get mad, I guess, but this is how consumerism works, obviously.

Nvidia didn't redistribute anything. They didn't put anything on their "platform" (what platform?) and they didn't violate any copyright.

You can a PC, just like Shadow, and you run your own software on it.
