The Long Dark Interloper Let's Play
Ever since Hinterland Studios released the Resolute Outfitter update for The Long Dark back in December, I’d been itching to watch a YouTube Let’s Play. I mean, I play the game about 20 hours per week myself, but I’ve yet to make the jump to Interloper, one of the most unforgiving difficulties in any game today.
To prepare for my imminent slaughter in the northern Canadian wilderness, I decided to give Hadrian a shot. I’ve enjoyed making Hadrian’s Let’s Play of The Long Dark a part of my evening routine so much that I wanted to share his journey with you. Even though Hadrian might not be the best player, that’s not the point of a Let’s Play.
A Let’s Play is about telling a story and bringing the viewer with you on that journey, and when it comes to doing that with The Long Dark, I have yet to find anyone better.
Below, you can get in on Season 3 of Hadrian’s Against All Odds series for The Long Dark. If you’re a fan of the game, you will almost certainly enjoy it.
