- In game description

Desolation Point is one of the five playable regions featured in The Long Dark.

Overview Edit

Desolation Point is described as a stretch of coastal highway pockmarked with the abandoned remnants of a formerly thriving whaling industry.

The region can be found by going to the end of the Coastal Highway, passing through the Commuter's Lament, and continuing onward through Crumbling Highway and No. 3 Coal Mine.

It has 16 locations to discover including the connector mine (named "No. 3 Coal Mine") with Crumbling Highway.

History Edit

Desolation Point was introduced on 18 September, 2015 in update 0.264.

Wildlife Management Edit

As noted in the description, there is much hostile wildlife. There are typically 1-2 bears and 5-8 wolves. While rifle and bow resources and spawns are limited, there is a banquet of medical supplies. This, in turn, can allow the player to win many wolf struggles and save bullets for bears.

Key Shelters Edit

Key shelters in Desolation Point include:

Lonely Lighthouse Edit

The lighthouse has a bed, a potbelly stove, plenty of storage, and an amazing view of much of Desolation Point if weather permits. This also can gauge how many wolves are in the immediate area, so the player can plan a course of action.

Hibernia Processing Edit

Hibernia Processing features enough scrap timber and metal to outfit an army, and enough beds to sleep them. Plenty of storage is available and a workbench and fire barrel are located downstairs. Many key tools can be found there, such as the hunting rifle. It is advisable to thin out hostile wildlife after acquiring the weapon.

The Riken Edit

The Riken boasts a forge/furnace which can be used for cooking and metalworking, as well as beds and storage. It should not be ignored, since when the player runs out of man made tools, such as the Hunting Knife, one can forge one, provided they have coal and or cedar to spare.
