Slender: The Arrival wraps players in a dark, foreboding atmosphere and a story fraught with terror, paranoia and other-worldly forces.

The only official Slender Man game, The Arrival puts you in the epicenter of the mystery surrounding the enigmatic internet persona that has captivated and terrorized millions. Written by the creative team behind Marble Hornets, this latest iteration in the Slender Man universe builds on the canon established by the original web-series, with some new twists and extended content.

Based on eye-witness accounts, The Slender Man is depicted as a thin, unnaturally tall man dressed in a black suit with a blank, featureless face. Now Slender: The Arrival comes to next-gen consoles with brand new story elements and extended levels that continue to unfold the Slender Man mythos. Players are enveloped in a world of sensory deprivation filled with haunting visions and audio cues that create a healthy dose of tension and paranoia.

During Unreal Fest 2023 Blue Isle Studios revealed the roadmap for the 10th Anniversary re-release of its classic horror title Slender: The Arrival.

This bone-chilling jump-scare adventure has been completely overhauled using the cutting-edge technology of Unreal Engine 5, and today Blue Isle Studios detailed the additional content coming post-release.

This includes an extended Slenderman storyline, multiplayer, and cross-platform modding (via CurseForge Studios and Overwolf), all slated to release in Q2 2024. 

Slender: The Arrival Content Roadmap Features

  • Multiplayer: No more being alone - now you can face the darkness together in cooperative multiplayer. Team up with friends, look for clues and work together to get out alive! 
  • Cross Platform Mod Kit: Create your own scenarios and share them on all platforms (PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S). Create single or multiplayer experiences and online scenarios using the same tools featured in the 10th Anniversary update including, AI, environment art, sound effects and most everything used by Blue Isle Studios designers. Create new stories and experiences to the current mythos of Slender and share your nightmarish creations with other players. 
  • The Story Continues: Discover new chapters of Slender: The Arrival through a fresh DLC expansion that will contain three original chapters. Explore never before seen regions, meet new characters, and survive unbelievable horrors! 
 Slender: The Arrival completely overhauled and updated for Unreal Engine 5, is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam and Epic Games Store on October 18.

In The Arrival’s all new storyline, Lauren is in search of her friend Kate, who recently has become increasingly obsessed with the folklore of Slender Man. Was Kate’s disappearance the work of Slender Man?  Use Kate’s forgotten flashlight to explore abandoned houses, creepy mines and dark forests to unravel the mystery – all the while being stalked by the menacing presence of Slender Man.

Featuring the hallmark terror, insanity and paranoia of the original, the latest iteration will delve deeper into the lives of those Slender Man has touched. Once players complete the core game, they’ll gain access to new flashback levels that will put them in the shoes of Slender Man’s victims. Slender: The Arrival is the definitive Slender experience on console that taps into the powers of loss, fear and curiosity.

Currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC, Slender: The Arrival 10th Anniversary Edition is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC (Steam) on October 18, 2023.
