For advanced players. An isolated alpine region with very few shelters or resources. A true test of wilderness survival skills.
- In game description

Timberwolf Mountain is the fifth region to be introduced in The Long Dark. It's commonly considered to be the most difficult to survive here, due to frigid temperatures (Sub-20C almost as a guarantee) and frequent blizzards (Usually at least three a week). This makes your time outside extremely limited without top-quality clothing.

Overview Edit

Timberwolf Mountain is described as pure wilderness with a mountainous expanse almost entirely lacking in man-made shelters. It has steep cliffs and ravines that require rope climbing to navigate through.[1]

Connects to Pleasant Valley via a treacherous and cold mountain pass.

A plane crashed on top of Timberwolf Mountain. The plane was shattered into parts, littering the area with debris and parts: A wing, the tail section, a single landing gear and a huge engine, not to mention half the fuselage found near the top of the mountain. In addition, there are cargo containers from the plane scattered near the various parts that, when opened with a hacksaw, contain large amounts of a specific kind of item, e.g. canned food, medicine or a class of clothing.

Strategy Edit

Timberwolf Mountain is very difficult to survive and requires preparation before attempting. There are few structures and little loot, so hunting is necessary to survive for an extended period of time.

A few hundred meters up the pathway from Pleasant Valley is Crystal Lake. On the shore is the Mountaineer's Hut, which is one of the only man-made shelters on the mountain.

The path to the summit is fairly linear. The destroyed plane at the summit contains many supplies including the distress pistol.

Game history Edit

Timberwolf Mountain was introduced on 16 December 2015 in version 0.298.
