Seasons

Recommended Posts

Seeing all of the people who get these 2000 day+ runs has made me wonder: if you survive all those years, what about seasons? Canada in summer is very different than it is in winter, and it never makes an appearance in game. Maybe springs could be short but animal spawn rates would be buffed, while winter animals would be far less plentiful and hostile wildlife far more abundant. Of course the odds of this suggestion being considered are very very low, as it kinda changes the main premise of the game, but I think it'd be a cool option for custom games. Thoughts?

Something I expect in The long Dark 2 to be honest. It would be too far of a cry from the spirit of this game but I really like the idea of having to plan for seasonal changes in game.

Once upon a time Hinterland made a road map saying that season were a plan that they had. However I think they changed their minds about it since it would be too time consuming and resource heavy to implement. I think it's something that is going to be saved for a TLD 2 "IF" they decide to make one. Or perhaps as DLC much later down the road when Wintermute is done (None of this is confirmed, just my speculation).

I can't ever seeing seasons being a thing in TLD, but I'd love to see it in a future Hinterland game.

If you do a forum search on this topic, you will find numerous threads, in the wishlist section and other sections, some of them ancient. For example this one from 2014:
