The trek from Signal Hill to the Carter Hydro Dam was slow and hard, awful weather and a bear encounter that could have gone much worse hadn't I had my revolver with me. I finally reached the Dam under heavy snow in the late afternoon...

Killed a rabbit, avoided a wolf, and up the Dam I went...

I was exhausted and encumbered, so I decided to sleep on my bedroll as soon as I entered the facility from the window. It was still night outside when I got up, and saw this:

Yep… aurora in the Carter Hydro Dam. Which means, watch your step and careful where you go. Not downstairs, for example.

So I returned to the relative safety of the office, I turned my head and — WHOA… POLTERGEIST!

That computer monitor… 

That computer monitor...

Isn't connected to anything...

It might be worth starting a separate thread for short video clips.

Wintermute does not get enough love here, IMHO. And it is just as beautiful visually as Survival Mode. On my third playthrough on Steam now, hoping to finally get the one achievement I keep missing. So, we begin again...

Cariboo...

Sure. Lets go flying into the great unknown, in this weather... What could go wrong?

I just loved the lighting and reflections here...

No, really. What could go wrong?

How did you pull that off? I've never used the flare gun, so may be missing the obvious... (Very cool, though!)

Long range direct hit with the flare gun..and I think it's specifically a long range critical hit, since I've had direct hits that inflict a bleeding injury, but the flare drops to the ground instead of getting stuck in the animal.   The flare gun is a guaranteed scare even if you miss.  On a normal direct hit, it inflicts a bleeding injury that--moose notwithstanding--is eventually fatal.  A point blank critical hit on a wolf is an instant kill.  (I've never insta-killed anything other than a wolf with the flare gun so I don't know if it can't be done, or if I'm just not lucky.)  A long range critical hit the flare gets stuck in the animal and allows you to kind of easily keep tabs on it as it runs around.   It's actually pretty difficult to accomplish with a wolf, since they present such a small target at range, and the flare gun fires at an arc necessitating that you aim the flare gun in a way that it blocks your view of the very thing you're trying to hit.

One of my memorable moments playing the game. Was able to reach the summit for the first time. I got there just in time to catch this spectacular view! Just soaked it all in the entire night before I looted the cargo plane in the morning.

Wintermute screenshots... trying to keep this as spoiler-free as possible. And thoroughly enjoying this third time through on Steam, 5th time through (2 XBox One plays done as well). A nice change from the craziness of Survival Mode. Gotta find all the notes and all the caches again. Game looks just as beautiful. :)

I can't wait for my new rig to get done being assembled and shipped, so i can see this all again in higher settings. :D

This room always creeps me out, In Wintermute and in Survival Mode.

Love the creepy vibe this shot gives off.  Also feel like there's something important stashed in that box that the game wants me to grab...

I assume your on pc? what resolution can tld be set too?

the reason i ask is because your screen shots look to be much better quality then the ones i take on my ps4.

Yeah, these were from the Steam version  of the game, since I almost never take or share screenshots from XBox One. And I run the game at 1360 x 768, on mixed Medium-High settings, because my PC is 6+ year old mid-grade build toaster, and that is the res and aspect ratio that works best for my 6+ year old display monitor as well. Steam has a feature with the Steam Overlay, that in select games you can capture an HD version of the shot, not sure what res it uses, to be honest. Hinterland may be able to answer that question better than I can by just guessing. So by using this Steam Overlay feature, I can save higher quality screenshots to my desktop instead of the lower quality screenshots that it saves to the remote folder on the PC. You will rarely, if ever, see me post a screenshot from the XBox One version of the game, simply because Steam makes it faster and easier to use for me, and sharing them is a real PITA on a Windows 7 computer (Windows 10 is much easier, but still not intuitive...). And you already know the issues with getting HUDless screenshots on either console.
