Release notes v1.1

We've released the first patch for Draugen. Version 1.1 addresses a couple of serious issues along with a few minor ones.

  • Unreal Engine upgrade from version 4.20 to 4.22, fixing a crash-to-desktop on older AMD GPUs
  • Tweaked texture pooling settings to improve overall texture quality
  • Fixed an achievement that was unavailable in v1.0: 'The Conversationalist'. You will need to replay the ending of the game (choose 'Continue' from the main menu) to receive the achievement, if you've already finished the game
  • Fixed some minor graphical glitches in the game

Thanks for playing, and please let us know if you discover anything new with this version!

Draugen is almost here

On Wednesday May 29th, at 9am Pacific Time and 6pm Central European Time, you will join Edward and Lissie on their journey into darkness, as they travel to 1920s Norway to find Edward's sister Elizabeth, and discover what lies beneath the picturesque surface of Graavik.

On the same day, we will also be releasing a Collector's Edition of Draugen, featuring the original soundtrack by Simon Poole, The Art of Draugen by Christoffer Grav, and Before Draugen — the prequel comic book — by Ragnar Tørnquist and Lautaro Capristo.




The Collector's Edition will be available as a bundle and at a discount.

Look out for a new trailer next week, but don't expect any more story details: we don't want to spoil anything, especially this close to release.

We hope you folks are as excited as we are, and we look forward to starting this new journey with you!

About This Game

Draugen is a single-player, first-person Fjord Noir tale of suspense and mystery, set in 1920s Norway.

About Draugen

From the studio that brought you Dreamfall Chapters, and the creative team behind The Longest Journey and The Secret World, comes a first-person psychological mystery set in 1920s Norway.

The year is 1923. You play Edward Charles Harden, an American traveller who's come to Norway to find his missing sister. But you're not alone: at every step of the way, Edward's accompanied by his ward, Lissie; a gregarious, independent and enigmatic young woman. Together, you must explore this scenic coastal community — nestled amongst the fjords and mountains of rural Norway — in your search for Edward's sister, and unearth the darkness that lies beneath the picturesque surface.

Key features

  • "I am not alone": explore 1920s coastal Norway accompanied by a living, breathing, independent companion
  • Interact with your companion, Lissie, through a realistic and dynamic dialogue system
  • Experience a thrilling tale through the eyes of an increasingly unreliable narrator
  • Find your own path through a scenic setting that changes with the weather and Edward's mental state
  • "A story about what lies beneath": piece together a gripping narrative with unexpected twists and turns

Additional features

  • A beautiful original musical score from award-winning composer Simon Poole (Dreamfall, The Secret World, The Park, Dreamfall Chapters)
  • Written by Ragnar Tørnquist (The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, The Secret World, Dreamfall Chapters)
  • Designed and developed by the team behind Dreamfall Chapters
  • Fully voiced in English, with motion-captured characters
