Timberline Studio announced as part of Microsoft’s X019 that its dog-sledding narrative survival game, The Red Lantern, will be coming to Xbox One in 2020. The title will also be available the same day as its release with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for console.
The Red Lantern is a resource management narrative game where you and your team of five sled dogs must survive the wilderness and find your way home. Set in Nome, Alaska, you play as The Musher, voiced by Ashly Burch (Horizon: Zero Dawn, Life is Strange), as she sets out to train for the grueling Iditarod race.
The game combines roguelite elements into this story-driven adventure game, where hundreds of different events can occur—like fending off bears, resisting frostbite, attending your dogs, or receiving a signature moose-licking. The Red Lantern will be releasing on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2020.
