- In game description
Pleasant Valley is the third map added to The Long Dark.
The region connects to Timberwolf Mountain via a rope climb near Prepper's Abandoned Cache on the northeastern edge of the map. At the southeastern edge, a path travels through Abandoned Mine No. 3 to the Coastal Highway region. On the southwestern edge, a somewhat hidden path west of Cascading Falls leads to the Mystery Lake region through Winding River and Carter Hydro Dam.
Pleasant Valley is the third map added to the game, and by far the largest of all of the maps. Pleasant Valley has few shelters so gameplay focuses on surviving the elements, living off the land, and navigating by natural structures.
There are several buildings located around the map, which consist of:
A large barn (On the Pleasant Valley Outbuildings area) located around the center of the map, including abandoned cars, hay trailers and tractors scattered around the perimeter. The barn is good location to set up base as it possesses all the needed utilities such as a fire barrel, a work bench, lots of storage, a central location and a bed (it is possible to sleep on the seat of the truck).
Located about five minutes from the barn is Pleasant Valley Farmstead (walking through the bale field). This location, like the barn, has several cars scatted around the perimeter which supply a decent amount of supplies. The farmstead is also a great location for a base, as with the barn, it possesses all the needed utilities such as a stove and a fire place, several beds with different warmth values, lots of storage, a work bench(in the basement), a patio for testing the weather, a large amount of loot and is located centrally close to the outbuildings and Signal Hill.
- Despite being the largest of the four maps it has the second smallest number of buildings.
- Pleasant Valley is currently the only map that tractors and hay trailers appear on.
