Blue Isle Studios has released a free update to mark the 10th anniversary of Slender: The Arrival. The update is essentially a remake, as Blue Isle has completely reworked the game in Unreal Engine 5. The updates also add a new playable chapter.
This new chapter, titled “Nightmare,” follows Charlie Matheson’s father, whose missing child is a key figure in the base game. The new chapter is the first of more to come. However, Blue Isle has not revealed any details about what these chapters will be about or whether they will be free, as is the case with this update. A multiplayer roadmap and cross-platform mod kit (supported by CurseForge and Overwolf) are scheduled to release sometime in 2024. A sequel called S: The Lost Chapters is in production, but there is no release date yet.
As for other features, you can still play the original version of the game on PC by swapping branches in the Steam client. The game has also been localized into additional languages, with revised subtitles, suggestions and readings for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese.
The update is now available for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. You can buy Slender: The Arrival for $20.
