Hinterland Studio Inc recently released an update for The Long Dark that added a ton of cool new content. The Frontier Comforts update was the third and final part of The Long Dark: Tales from the Far Territory DLC.

Although the DLC received a mixed reception from fans, many still liked it and had already sunk many hours. However, players have been critical of the DLC due to several lingering bugs and issues.
