Brand New Chapter


Those of you willing to brave the darkness will find a brand new chapter waiting for you. In the game’s new chapter; Nightmare, we follow Charlie Matheson’s father as he descends ever deeper into madness.





Future Development - 2024 Roadmap


In case you missed our previous post, we’ll share all of it again. The world of Slender: The Arrival is expanding and we are excited to announce the following new content is in development. We don’t have a firm release date for this yet, but we are targeting Q2 of 2024 for the release.


Multiplayer is Coming - Face The Darkness Together

The darkness is relentless, and now you don’t have to face it alone. We’re excited to introduce a brand new way to play; a cooperative multiplayer mode. Team up with friends, look for clues and get out alive… assuming you all work together.


For the first time ever, you can team up with others to investigate the mythos of Slender Man as you attempt to run, hide, or even fight back if you dare.


The Story Continues - Brand New Chapters

We are hard at work on a brand new DLC expansion containing three all-new chapters. The story of Slender: The Arrival is not done yet, with new regions to explore, characters to meet and horrors to survive.


Cross-Platform Mod Kit - Create Your Own Nightmares

In partnership with CurseForge for Studios and our friends at Overwolf, we are proud to announce the Slender: The Arrival Creators Mod Kit.


Create your own scenarios and distribute them across every platform; PC, PlayStation 5, or Xbox Series X/S. Players can create single player experiences, or, leverage the brand new multiplayer mode to create online scenarios. The editor we ship will be very similar to the one used to develop the 10th Anniversary Update, giving you access to all of the same tools, AI, environment art, sound effects and everything used by our designers.


Contribute new stories and experiences to the mythos and share your nightmarish creations with players all around the world.
