The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration-survival experience that challenges solo players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster. It's an action & adventure game developed and published by Hinterland Studio Inc in 2017. There are no zombies -- only you, the cold, and all the threats Mother Nature can muster.
The system requirements are lightweight; almost any new laptop will work for playing The Long Dark.
Most gaming laptops meet the RAM requirement of 8gb, though 4gb is enough to meet the minimum requirements.
