2013's Slender: The Arrival is one of the most iconic horror games of all time, garnering a huge fanbase, merchandise, and countless fan creations. The best part? The game is finally getting a 10th Anniversary Update in 2023 after a decade of silence from developers!

Developers say that "every shadow, every material, every model and every hair-raising encounter with the mysterious Slender Man will be rendered in stunning detail," with updates both to gameplay and visuals coming to the game. The update will use Unreal Engine 5.2.

Also included in the update is S: The Last Chapters, which the developers describe as a "brand new type of horror," allowing players to delve deeper into the stories of the Slender universe. The update comes after months of fan speculation about a possible remake following developers' addition of a countdown clock to the Slender: The Arrival website with no context.
