AnyGivenGamer Posted July 15, 2015 Share Posted July 15, 2015 Thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Sebastian, or Seb for short is just fine, generally known as AnyGivenGamer on all gaming and social platforms I'm active on (not that many).I recently downloaded the trial version of The Long Dark on the Xbox One via the Xbox Game Preview initiative and I was intrigued by what I played... even though it was only for a mere 60 minutes. Didn't get a lot out of it but I'd like to know more.I do have one question, and keep in mind it's based on a 60-minute playthrough, some articles/blog posts I've read and a general lack of knowledge about the game:"How far will you go to survive?" is a tagline I read on the official site of the game, which, to me, implies there is a way to survive the wilderness. Yet, judging by some players, this doesn't seem to be the case, claiming that it's some kind of "default" that you will eventually die no matter what you do. Is this true?The reason I'm asking is because that's basically the only thing that's keeping me from buying the game. If I am to die repeatedly, it won't bother me as long as I know there's a goal to be obtained, a way out of the wild regardless of what it takes and how long it takes. But I don't see an incentive to even attempt survival if I already know from the start that I'll eventually die and there's no way to stop that from happening.Would also like to mention that I'm very interested in the story mode, but I know it's not ready yet so I won't mention it beyond this point.Thank you.//Seb Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
