Computer game is the real survival horror, without the presence of elements of the action, that is usual for most games of this genre. Slender The Arrival Free Download. The player will only have a flashlight in the arsenal.

Slender: The Arrival (sometimes also wrote as Slender – The Arrival) is a first-personsurvival horrorvideo game developed by Blue Isle Studios as a fully realized, commercial version to Parsec Productions' Slender: The Eight Pages, with Chapter 6 being a remake of the aforementioned game. It was released on Microsoft Windows and OS X on March 26, 2013. Thereafter, the game was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 23 and 24, 2014 respectively. It was released for PlayStation 4 on March 24, 2015 in North America and March 25 in Europe and Xbox One on March 25 worldwide, before shipping onto Wii U in October. A Nintendo Switch port for the game was announced on May 29, 2019 and was released on June 20, 2019. Like its predecessor, the game is based on the Something Awful forums' creation, the Slender Man.

The Arrival is the prologue to the first slender game, Slender: the Eight Pages, which was itself an experimental game. In the first, players are challenged to search the short game for eight pages of a book while being relentlessly haunted by a faceless man, the Slender man. No one to hear you scream. Slender: The Arrival is the official video game adaptation of Slender Man, re-created from Mark Hadley's original nerve-shattering sensation. Developed in collaboration with Blue Isle Studios, The Arrival features a brand new storyline, improved visuals, great replay value, and most importantly, survival horror at its.

Gameplay[edit]

The majority of the game takes place in abandoned areas (house, defunct mine, etc.), each with different objectives. Slender: The Arrival uses similar mechanics to its predecessor, The Eight Pages. The character is armed only with a flashlight. This limited defense forces a sense of helplessness, as the best way to survive in the game is to run whenever in danger. The Slender Man's behavior changes slightly between levels. In the first level, the Slender Man can be seen outside the window, and after going through the gate outside he can be seen on the top of hills well away from the player. In level two, he most often teleports off-screen or just out of the character's line of sight, but is capable of appearing directly in front of the player. It is observed that his motion centers around following the player, but consists largely of jumping from place to place, the inconvenience of which is increased as each of the eight pages are collected. His behavior is much the same as this in level four, except more active. In level three, he pursues much less aggressively, though is capable of teleporting directly in front of the player. In this level, the main antagonist is a girl who chases the player (most often following her path directly, but has been seen teleporting. It is unknown whether this is a glitch or an in-game mechanic). The only way of subduing her is by focusing the flashlight (on its second setting) on her. While looking at the Slender Man, the camera succumbs to electronic distortions such as static, blurring, color spots, audio distortion, etc., which obstructs the player's vision unless facing away, and far enough from it. The player cannot pause while this occurs, to prevent them taking a break due to being frightened. When caught, the game over screen is also different; while in Slender: The Eight Pages, the player saw a white static background with Slender Man's faceless head, the one for Slender: The Arrival is black, with an overhead-lit and color-distorted hue and less static.[1]There are also new choices in difficulty (which must first be unlocked by completing the game once) being easy, normal, and hardcore. The differences being that hardcore allows the flashlight to run out, enemies are more aggressive and the player's stamina runs out quickly. Easy has infinite flashlight, a great deal of stamina, and the enemies are not very aggressive

Plot[edit]

Slender: The Arrival follows the story of two childhood friends, Lauren and Kate, after the events in Slender: The Eight Pages. Kate (believed to be the young girl in the Eight Pages) is selling her childhood home outside of Oakside Park.

Lauren, in response to several unsettling letters Kate had sent her, comes to visit her childhood friend, bringing along a video camera. Her driveway blocked by a fallen tree, Lauren leaves her car by the road and continues on foot to the familiar house. Along the way, she passes another car (who owns the car is unknown). With the sun setting behind her, Lauren discovers Kate's home, doors ajar; furniture and belongings disheveled. After carefully searching the house for the key to Kate's room as well as finding a flashlight, Lauren lets herself in. Scrawlings of an ominous figure and haunting messages adorn her walls. A woman's scream coming from a shattered window causes her to panic. Desperately searching for her friend, Lauren heads towards the sound, into the wooded park behind the house. She activates three generators to light up the path and finds a burnt farmhouse. Inside is Charlie Matheson Jr., a boy who had disappeared years ago and is now deformed. He disappears when Lauren approaches him.

Lauren aimlessly searches the wooded area for any clues as to the whereabouts of her friend, only finding more of the scribbled drawings. As she ventures deeper into the park searching for the eight drawings, scopaesthesia causes her to encounter a tall, faceless figure named Slender Man. After all pages are collected, Lauren runs from Slender Man, slipping down an embankment, hitting her head and causing her to pass out.

She regains consciousness several hours later (which is now morning), disoriented; still searching for Kate, Lauren stumbles upon an old abandoned coal mine. Various scraps of old paperwork reveal the mine to have been abandoned in a hurry, crediting seemingly random and unexplained attacks upon the crew to the closure of the mine. An escape route was outlined, but due to inactivity, remains inoperable. With nowhere to go, Lauren attempts to reactivate the emergency lift by activating the six generators that power it. Her progress is hindered by the attack of a young figure known as the Chaser, who seems to be afraid of the light of Lauren's flashlight, dressed in a blood covered white hooded sweatshirt and white mask. The Chaser's long black hair being the only discernible feature left uncloaked. Slender Man later attempts to attack Lauren in the mine.

Lauren does manage to escape both the Chaser and Slender Man and use the lift to get out of the mine. She continues moving forward, reaching a small storage outpost for the now abandoned mining facility. Within she discovers a small television playing a video along with two other tapes. Intrigue getting the better of her, Lauren watches the tape. On screen, she finds herself watching Kate hurriedly scribbling upon papers. Kate stops, grabs her camera and after discovering that Slender Man is trying to get in, starts to close every door and window in the house but Slender Man manages to get inside. Kate then runs back to her room where Slender Man suddenly appears inside. Kate appears to jump out of the bedroom window before the tape abruptly ends. The second tape shows Carl Ross (CR for short), a friend of Kate's, investigating a farm where he repairs a pulley system, find gas canisters to power a generator, and looks for a key needed to unlock a gate to a chapel. Charlie pursues him at every turn and eventually chases him away. The third tape shows Charlie playing on the beach and after collecting a trail of toy trains that lead him into the woods, he is caught by Slender Man.

Obeying a message etched upon the wall across from the television, Lauren continues up the mountainside towards a radio tower. Behind every turn, Slender Man attempts to capture Lauren with increasing ferocity while she avoids fire and falling trees within a burning forest.

Lauren narrowly escapes her attacker in the hallways of the radio tower building and looks for a key needed to unlock a door. Her flashlight's batteries die as she travels through the door only to find she has reached a dead end, containing a burnt body (who is possibly CR), a fire and a camera with the recording of two panicked people. Shortly after listening, the corridor goes dark and Charlie runs towards Lauren accompanied by seeing flashing images of Charlie before blacking out.

An additional level takes place after Kate fled into the woods where she collected the eight pages while being followed by Slender Man, after finding all the pages Slender Man catches her, claiming that he 'has plans for her'.

If the player has beaten the game once before, a Hardcore difficulty option will unlock, which is like the first game but more difficult. One difference is that Lauren must find gas canisters in order to power the generators in the mine. Before a game update, upon completion of the game again, Lauren will attempt to escape by jumping from a high area, in which her camera dies after she does so. After an update to the game was made, this ending is no longer possible to get. The game now ends with Lauren awake in the basement of the farmhouse from earlier with Charlie blocking the way out. After finding two documents, Charlie disappears. Lauren hears crying upstairs and finds Kate but when she approaches her, Kate suddenly turns into the Chaser (implying that they are both the same person) and attacks her. Lauren's camera turns back on temporarily to show someone's legs being dragged away. Who those legs belong to is unknown but it could either be Lauren dragging a seemly unconscious Kate away after surviving the attack or Lauren being dragged away by Kate, Charlie, or Slender Man after being killed.

A secret level is also unlockable, which takes place at Kate's house in the daytime. Who the player is playing as is unknown but the goal of the level is to travel from room to room while avoiding Slender Man.

Characters[edit]

  • Lauren – The game's protagonist and playable character. She comes to her friend Kate's house to help her sell it, only to find her missing. Against all odds, she proceeds to relentlessly search for Kate and any clues that might explain how she went missing.
  • Kate/The Chaser – A close friend of Lauren, she is also playable in 'Escape' and 'Genesis'. Her mother has recently died and she has decided to sell the house, prompting Lauren's visit with the intention to assist, but disappears. Prior to the events of the game, she had visions of the 'Slender Man' which she shared with her friend CR. The night before the events of the game, she was attacked in her home but managed to escape, as revealed in 'Escape'. CR arranges for himself and her to be burned to death in order to stop the 'curse' of the Slenderman spreading but Kate runs away and is implied to then be driven to the point of violent madness, later attacking Lauren in the mines and the Matheson house at the end. It's unknown where she got the hood and mask that she wore when she was turned into a proxy.
  • Carl Ross 'CR' – A friend of Kate, with whom he shared her visions of the Slender Man. He and Kate would play in the woods together as children, but when Kate's mom found out he stopped visiting. Despite asking Kate to keep his existence a secret from Lauren, he advised Kate to call her when her mom died. He is playable in 'Homestead' in which he investigates a farmland property owned by the Mathesons and finds clues suggesting that Slender Man had stalked them for generations. CR is found at the end of the game, his charred corpse next to a camcorder. A scrapbook item located next to Kate's wastebin implies that his real name is Carl Ross and that he may have (unreciprocated) romantic feelings towards Kate.
  • Slender Man – The faceless main antagonist of the game who can only be seen through video cameras. Facing him causes the camera to glitch and distort, intensifying as the player gets closer. Coming too close will result in the player's death. In the game, it is also shown that his influence can eventually drive his victims so far into insanity that they become a monstrous, violent shadow of their former selves (called 'Proxies'), as with Kate and Charlie.
  • Charlie Matheson Jr. – The missing child. Missing posters can be found right outside Kate's house on a tree and outside the entrance of the Koleman Mine. Version 1.5 of the game has Charlie appear in the prologue, 'Homestead' and epilogue as a decaying zombie-like corpse that chases Lauren, and it is implied that he was heavily affected by Slender Man's influence but is now helping Lauren to investigate him. In 'Memories' it was shown how he was lured into the woods by Slender Man before being captured. In 'Homestead', it's shown that the farmland property Charlie and his family would often visit shows signs of the Slender Man haunting the Mathesons for generations. CR theorises that Charlie inadvertently stumbled upon evidence of this, which may have prompted the Slender Man to come after him in particular.

Development[edit]

Slender: The Arrival was developed by Blue Isle Studios and Parsec Productions for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac.[2][3] The developers were considering a release for the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3, and Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. Blue Isle Studios worked with indie game publisher Midnight City to help develop the game for other platforms.

Eight screenshots were released on the official Slender: The Arrival website, followed by four on the Blue Isle Studio website.[4] A trailer was released for the game on December 23, 2012.[5]

On December 1, 2012, Blue Isle Studios announced its partnership with the Marble Hornets team, a YouTube channel known for its horror videos which heavily featured Slender Man, and helped to shape the modern version of the Slender Man. Joseph DeLage, Tim Sutton and Troy Wagner helped write the script for the initial release of the game.[6]

On February 9, 2013, Slender: The Arrival was opened to the public for beta testing. If one pre-ordered the game, they were entitled to a free demo of the game. Pre-orders were $5 each, but once the game was released, it would be $10.[7]

Slender: The Arrival received mixed to positive reviews, with critics praising its soundtrack, tense atmosphere and scares, but also criticizing its shorter than expected campaign length and repetitive gameplay. Aggregating review website Metacritic gave the Xbox 360 version 61/100 based on 5 reviews,[9] the Microsoft Windows version 65/100 based on 30 reviews,[8] the PlayStation 4 version 60/100 based on 8 reviews,[10] the Xbox One version 59/100 based on 6 reviews,[11] and the PlayStation 3 version 48/100 based on 4 reviews.[12]

In a positive review, The Escapist said 'you may have mixed feelings about its brevity and the repetitive mechanics, but it's certainly a well-built game that, above all, is scary to play' and gave the game a score of 4.5 stars out of 5.[20]VVGtv gave the game a score of 8.8/10, praising the game's graphics, sound, gameplay (with the exception of a few elements) and mystery element, while criticising the short story, adding that 'if you played The Eight Pages and are looking for the next scare to really get your adrenaline pumping and to get you to yell like you did when you first saw Slenderman right behind you, this game will not disappoint'.[21]GameSpot gave the game a score of 8.5/10, calling it 'one of the most terrifying games in recent memory'.[13]

In a negative review, VideoGamer said The Arrival is a 'frustrating game, not just because it can be occasionally unfair but because these guys clearly have no idea how to promote fear. Running around playing kiss chase with a trans-dimensional being doesn't really cut it.' and gave it a score of 4/10.[16]The Metro also criticized the lack of varied gameplay, stating, 'the first game had little real gameplay and this sequel does nothing to expand things, just repeat the experience often enough to rob it of its power.' and gave it a score of 6/10.[22]

Plot

'So often are we guided by our devotion, our love, our affection. A bond that pulls us down paths not bargained for. And when you find yourself alone as HE casts out that bedeviling gaze..

How far will it carry you?'

Chapter 1: 'Prologue'

The game starts out when the main character's (Lauren's) Volvo is parked at the head of Kate's driveway, stopped by a fallen tree. Lauren walks down a path to Kate's home. On the way, Lauren passes another car (perhaps owned by CR, but this is never confirmed). Once making it to Kate's home, Lauren finds that she is not there. She investigates the house to find it very disheveled—furniture is strewn about, windows are open, etc. Lauren also finds many drawings and wall-scratchings hinting at the Slender Man.

In searching, Lauren finds a key which allows her to unlock Kate's bedroom upstairs. Inside, she sees walls textured entirely with drawings and scratchings of Kate's, hinting that the way to safety involves reaching a radio tower visible in the distance. On Kate's desk is a paper with writing. After picking up this paper, Lauren hears a long, drawn-out scream coming from the woods behind Kate's house. Lauren goes to investigate, and finds three generators along the way. A burning presence presses down on her, as if she isn't completely alone.

Lauren finds a burnt house near the end of her trip, black and lifeless. Investigation discovers Charles Matheson Jr. standing in a single corner. He is decayed and starved of all recognizable features. As she goes to see who she is dealing with, the camera flickers several images and then the figure is gone. When at last she arrives at the entrance to Oakside Park, she enters the area and the level transitions.

In the Steam Update, there's a book with sketches, and then there's a door. When you enter the door, the screen goes black, and 'Slender: The Arrival' logo appears, and then the game proceeds to the Eight Pages.

Chapter 2: 'The Eight Pages'

Stepping out of the small building, Lauren explores Oakside Park looking for Kate, whom she believes to be the source of the scream she heard at the end of the previous chapter. Along the way, she collects eight of the pieces of paper with Kate's mad scribblings on them, and is harassed by the Slender Man. After collecting the 8th page, the Slender Man attempts to grab her, but she breaks free and dashes off through the forest in a blind panic.

This level serves as an enhanced remake of the original Slender: The Eight Pages.

Chapter 3: 'Into The Abyss'

Lauren awakes in a field in Oakside Park, near the Kullman Mining facility. As she explores the closed valley, she finds that she must enter a dark tunnel into a mountain that, as is alluded to in a collectible newspaper article, was created by Kullman Mining Co. after purchasing mineral rights from the owners of Oakside Park. As she enters, Lauren sees a sign that instructs that in the event of a power outage, six generators must be activated in order to power the emergency lift and escape. As she powers the generators, she realizes that she is being chased by the Chaser, a terrifying figure in a white hoodie with a mask (who is later revealed to be Kate as a proxy). During this, she is also harassed by the Slender Man. As all six generators are activated, Lauren activates the lift and is risen to the top of the shaft, thus transitioning to Chapter 4.

In the Hardcore mode, Lauren must collect all gas canisters before activating the generators.

Chapter 4: 'Flashback'

After making her way out of the mine, Lauren is allowed again to briefly explore the beautiful landscape as she collects evidence relating to Kate. As she traverses, she finds a teddy bear on the side of the trail. She then progresses through a small cave and finds a small building, inside which there is a TV with two tapes on the table next to it.

As of version 2.0, the videotape section of this chapter has been made a separate chapter named Escape. The chapter Flashback is used as a transition to chapters Homestead and Escape.

Chapter 5: 'Memories'

This chapter can be accessed by finding the stuffed teddy bear in the woods in Chapter 4.

This chapter allows the player to take control of Charlie, while playing on the beach with his family having a picnic. Charlie spots a trail of toy trains that lead him to the woods. His parents eventually start calling for him after Charlie grabs the last piece of the toy train. Charlie realizes that something is stalking him and begins to look for a way out, only to find a dead end and be captured by Slender Man, while screaming for help.

Slender The Arrival Gameplay Pc

Chapter 6: 'Escape'

One of the tapes shows footage of a girl scribbling on a sheet of paper. The video is of Kate, now controlled by the player, who has to secure her home from the Slender Man. During this process, she sees the Slender Man and tries to hide in her room. She is confronted by the Slender Man, which causes her to crash out of her bedroom window, ending the chapter and the video recording simultaneously.

This chapter is accessed in Chapter 4, along with the tape for 'Homestead'.

Chapter 7: 'Homestead' =

This level allows the player to take control of Carl Ross while he's doing his research about Charlie's disappearance. While investigating the Matheson Farmstead, CR is chased by Charlie, now turned into a Proxy, while discovering evidence that the Mathesons have been watched by Slender Man for generations. Once CR exits the cellar, he then drops the camera and can then be seen getting chased by Charlie (as a proxy).

This chapter is accessed in Chapter 4, along with the tape for 'Escape'.

Chapter 8: 'The Arrival'=

After the flashback ends, Lauren makes her way up the mountain and through a cave, where she realizes the surrounding forest has been set on fire. She charges toward the radio tower that she thinks will save her from the Slender Man. Along the way she dodges flames, falling trees, and a very aggressive Slender Man. As she enters the tower, the door slams shut. A loud pounding is heard, presumably the Slender Man having just been locked out behind her and trying to get in. Ahead lies a locked door, where a key must be found to unlock it. After finding it, footsteps can be heard and Lauren is forced to proceed to a dead-end hallway. The leading door slams behind her and as she reads the writing etched on the wall, she realizes that Kate is going to be the one to kill her—that the voice of her only real friend has told her to do it (it is presumed that this friend is the Slender Man, who has warped her mind and driven her insane).

Lauren walks to the end of the hall where the charred corpse of a man, presumed to be CR, is lying next to a video camera. As Lauren plays the audio on the camera, she hears CR trying to convince Kate to do something, most likely commit suicide with him, as evidenced by note No. 13 and the fridge note from 'Prologue'. Kate screams that she can't, and runs away. CR then says sorry to someone, and starts screaming. After a while, a woman, presumably Kate, starts laughing. The audio ends suddenly. The fire near the door where Lauren entered is blown out, and the door can be heard opening and footsteps are heard. The camera, near dead, begins to flash of incoherent shapes and loud noises while the decaying figure is Charles Matheson Jr. closes in on Lauren.

Waking up in a basement, Lauren finds herself with an almost dead camera battery. A quick inspection of the room, gives her a close look at Charlie, who is guarding the stairs that lead up to the rest of the mysterious setting. Attempting to rush up the stairs will be obviously hindered. Exploration instincts kick in and Lauren finds a nearly burnt notebook and one last printed email from CR. She looks again and Charlie is gone, allowing access to the upper floor. She finds, however, she is back in the burnt house from the prologue, replaced by the crying of Kate. Navigating the hallways, Lauren comes face to face with her friend, and a single attempt to get any closer results in her ultimate demise as a sudden switch from Kate to The Chaser in a single instant. And before long, the camera is shown the view of Lauren's legs vanishing slowly from view as her body is dragged away. And then nothing as the game ends and the credits roll.

Chapter 9: 'Genesis'=

Chapter 9 (introduced as Chapter 6 in v.1.3) takes place before 'Escape'. In it, Kate is wandering around a park at night, when she finds a page with disturbing images and text on it. Slender Man begins to stalk her. When Kate finds all of the Eight pages scattered around the park, Slender Man catches up to her. However, rather than abducting her, he simply says, 'I have plans for you, Kate.'

This level serves as an unaltered remake of Slender: The Eight Pages, and serves as the driving sequence towards Arrival.

Game

Chapter 10: 'Glitch'=

A secret level is playable by collecting a missing child poster 3 times during the course of the game, the name of the child being Charles Matheson Jr. The secret level is a series of distorted rooms in which Lauren is trying to go to another room but instead gets teleported to another room. When Lauren enters a room where the door is locked, she will eventually get captured by the Slender Man and a voice will call out and say, 'he likes you' and wants to, 'play with you'.

You are then taken back to the main menu, if the player attempts to continue by checking the option stage selection, all the stages are replaced with the missing child poster you have seen before. You are in front of the house where there are a series of distortion all around the environment and the graphics are slightly low. In this stage you simply wander around the house, where at some point, the screen will cut to black and you are 'found'.

After that, the player is placed outside, immobile and unable to move due to being set on fire. Slender Man will then teleport closer and closer to the player until the game cuts to black with the image of the missing child poster combined with Slender Man. The final thing that comes up after it is the voice stating, 'You are dead', and then the game ends. When you return to the main menu, the only options available are 'Start Game' and 'Exit'.

Choosing 'Start Game' leads the player to a scene where Lauren seems to be looking up at the sky. The screen cuts to black once again and the missing child poster combined with Slender Man appears like it did before at the end of the secret level. If the player exits the game, however, the five stages will return back to normal and will no longer have the missing child poster.

Throughout the level, pressing the Esc button will cause the screen to warp as though Slender Man was nearby, even in the menu.

Attempting to exit the game by going back to the main menu during the Secret Level and clicking 'Exit' will not work, and instead results in a message appearing that reads 'Don't leave me'.

Characters

  • Lauren - The game's protagonist and main, playable character. She is visiting Kate, who recently lost her mother and is selling her house, when she discovers that Kate was attacked the night before, and subsequently sets out to find her. After investigating clues and gather evidence of the prior events, she eventually reaches a radio tower, where her fate is left unresolved. In the Hardcore mode, Lauren presumably jumps off the radio tower and her fate is still unresolved.
  • Kate/The Chaser - Friend of Lauren, she is a secondary antagonist for most of the game, but also the playable protagonist for Chapters 4 and 6. Kate's mother recently died, and she is contemplating selling her house, which is why Lauren is coming to visit. Prior to the events of the game, she was having visions of the Slender Man, something she shared with her friend, CR. The night before (presumably) the events of the game, she was attacked in her home by the Slender Man, but managed to escape, as revealed in 'Chapter 4'. She was hunted by Slender Man, became insane, and now is subsequently turned into proxy. She was The Chaser in Chapter 3 who chased Lauren and was served as a antagonist in that chapter. During chapter 1 a letter can be found where CR revealed his feelings for her. This may attribute to her not answering him as he mentions in later letters.
  • Slender Man: The spectral and faceless main antagonist of the game. Facing him causes the camera to glitch and distort, intensifying as the player gets closer. In the game, it is also shown that it can turn its victims into 'proxies', or assistants of sorts.
  • Carl Ross - Friend of Kate, who shared visions of the Slender Man with her. Together, they tried escaping the Slender Man, but by then Kate had been taken over and CR died by being burned alive, which was seen at the end of the game when you enter the radio tower. Presumably killed by either Kate or the Slender Man himself. He investigated Charlie Matheson Jr.'s disappearance at the Matheson farm before being stalked by Slender Man and Charlie. The Homestead Mission shows CR's attempt to figure out what happened to Charlie Jr. A letter sent to Kate reveals his name as Carl Ross as well his feelings for her.
  • Charlie Matheson Jr. - A missing boy who ran away from his parents. Implied to have encountered the Slender Man in the backstory. With the release of the new secret level, some players assume that he is the Slender Man, though there is little to support this. Others say he is CR, but, there is also little evidence to back this up. In the Steam update, he is introduced in person as a decaying proxy appearing briefly in the Prologue and kidnapping Lauren in The Arrival. With the new introduced chapter 'Homestead', it is made clear that Charlie is not CR nor Slender Man.

Endings

  • Original Ending: During initial development, there was an ending that had the player race up a snow-capped mountain in order to reach the Radio Tower. This ending is now unobtainable as it was later replaced by the forest fire scene in the full release and the updates that followed.[1]
  • First Ending: Lauren sees images of presumably Charlie Matheson Jr. or proxified Kate in some sort of web approaching her, and is approached by an unknown aggressive entity (possibly the Slender Man). The camera's battery then dies. This ending is now unobtainable.
  • Hardcore Ending: Lauren sees the image of presumably Charlie Matheson Jr. or proxified Kate in some sort of web coming closer to her, then falls off the radio tower (the film of her going to the top may have been destroyed by Sigma Radiation). The film then cuts to the camera lying on it's side, and static flickers for a second before the battery dies. Whether or not Lauren survived the fall is never shown. This ending is now unobtainable.
  • Updated Ending: After listening to the recording, Charlie (now a decaying proxy) knocks Lauren out and locks her in the basement of Charlie's burnt house. If the player moves around, Charlie watches your every move, moving it's head in your direction, watching you. After collecting a book from a cell, Charlie disappears and the sounds of Kate crying is heard, Lauren makes her way up the stairs to come face to face with Kate, unproxified, unmasked, and unhooded. Lauren starts moving towards her to comfort her, only for Kate to turn back into The Chaser and attacks Lauren. By the end of the conflict, someone's legs are being dragged upon the floor, most likely a deceased Lauren. this is the only ending available now.

Gameplay

The majority of the game takes place in abandoned areas (house, defunct mine, etc.), each with different objectives. Slender: The Arrival uses similar mechanics to its predecessor, The Eight Pages. The character is armed only with a flashlight. This limited defense forces a sense of helplessness, as the best way to survive in the game is to run whenever in danger. The Slender Man's behavior changes slightly between levels. In the first level, the Slender Man can be seen outside the window, and after going through the gate outside he can be seen on the top of hills well away from the player. In level two, he most often teleports off-screen or just out of the character's line of sight, but is capable of appearing directly in front of the player. It is observed that his motion centers around following the player, but consists largely of jumping from place to place, the inconvenience of which is increased as each of the eight pages are collected. His behavior is much the same as this in level four, except more active. In level three, he pursues much less aggressively, though is capable of teleporting directly in front of the player. In this level, the main antagonist is a girl who chases the player (most often following her path directly, but has been seen teleporting. It is unknown whether this is a glitch or an in-game mechanic). The only way of subduing her is by focusing the flashlight (on its second setting) on her. While looking at the Slender Man, the camera succumbs to electronic distortions such as static, blurring, color spots, audio distortion, etc., which obstructs the player's vision unless facing away, and far enough from it. The player cannot pause while this occurs, to prevent them taking a break due to being frightened. When caught, the game over screen is also different; while in Slender: The Eight Pages, the player saw a white static background with Slender Man's faceless head, the one for Slender: The Arrival is black, with an overhead-lit and color-distorted hue and less static. There are also new choices in difficulty (which must first be unlocked by completing the game once) being easy, normal, and hardcore. The differences being that hardcore allows the flashlight to run out, enemies are more aggressive and the player's stamina runs out quickly. Easy has infinite flashlight, a great deal of stamina, and the enemies are not very aggressive.

Beta

The Beta version is the second chapter of the full game, The Eight Pages, a remake of the original game, Slender: The Eight Pages. The original pages appear in this level.

There are some notable differences between this map and the original map from The Eight Pages, most notably being the terrain and the layout of the paths. Landmarks such as The Bathroom, The Cross Wall, The Tunnel and The Silo have been removed and replaced with landmarks that look more natural for the setting.

Slenderman The Arrival Game Online

Just like The Eight Pages, the notes are placed in 8 of the 10 following locations..

  • Water tower
  • The Information Center
  • Tree with canoe
  • The Watch tower
  • Industrial area
  • Humvee
  • Abandoned Car
  • Portable toilet
  • The Tent
  • Map/Notice Board (displaying a sketch of the Slender Man)

There is also a secret building outside the boundaries of the map that might have been intended as the original replacement for the silo.

Once you have located all eight pages, the intense music and sound will fade into silence. After this you are allowed to walk around for 10 seconds before Slender Man teleports directly behind you, forcing you to turn around and die, rather than startling you and causing you to run away like in the full version.

Reception

Slender The Arrival Game

Slender: The Arrival received mixed to positive reviews, with critics praising its soundtrack, tense atmosphere and scares, but also criticizing its shorter than expected campaign length and repetitive gameplay. Aggregating review website Metacritic gave the Xbox 360 version 61/100 based on 5 reviews, the Microsoft Windows version 65/100 based on 30 reviews, the PlayStation 4 version 60/100 based on 8 reviews, the Xbox One version 59/100 based on 6 reviews, and the PlayStation 3 version 48/100 based on 4 reviews.

In a positive review, The Escapist said 'you may have mixed feelings about its brevity and the repetitive mechanics, but it's certainly a well-built game that, above all, is scary to play' and gave the game a score of 4.5 stars out of 5. VVGtv gave the game a score of 8.8/10, praising the game's graphics, sound, gameplay (with the exception of a few elements) and mystery element, while criticising the short story, adding that 'if you played The Eight Pages and are looking for the next scare to really get your adrenaline pumping and to get you to yell like you did when you first saw Slenderman right behind you, this game will not disappoint'. GameSpot gave the game a score of 8.5/10, calling it 'one of the most terrifying games in recent memory'.

In a negative review, VideoGamer said The Arrival is a 'frustrating game, not just because it can be occasionally unfair but because these guys clearly have no idea how to promote fear. Running around playing kiss chase with a trans-dimensional being doesn't really cut it.' and gave it a score of 4/10. The Metro also criticized the lack of varied gameplay, stating, 'the first game had little real gameplay and this sequel does nothing to expand things, just repeat the experience often enough to rob it of its power.' and gave it a score of 6/10.

Trivia

  • The game over screen is different than Eight Pages. On that game, it features a close-up face of Slender Man but the static is grey and he faces at a 90 degrees angle while in this game, it has less static and is more detailed (looks like appearing in real life or 3D).
    • There is also another variant of the said screen in which it does not only involve the Slender Man. It displays the close-up of Charlie as seen in Homestead and The Arrival when they entered the radio tower but before reaching the burned corpse of CR. On the first mentioned level, it appeared when he chases the player at the cornfield, chapel, and house after they exit the chapel. On the last level, even though no one chases them, that screen still causes a game over.
    • This does not include Kate is that the close-up of her is only an animation of attacking the player even if it is the last chance to survive (depends on the difficulty) before the screen cuts to black.
  • Unlike his appearance in The Eight Pages, the Slender Man in The Arrival has a much more detailed suit.
  • The Slender Man model is animated, containing a walking animation, a breathing animation, a head tilt animation, a hunching-over animation, a reach-out-and-grab-you animation (which is usually played with the Slender Man behind the player—only way to actually see it is if you have god mode turned on and you turn around at just the right moment), and tentacle animation. These appear to be able to be played simultaneously.
  • On the in-game HUD (Heads Up Display), the recording timer in the top right corner displays :60 instead of :00 every minute. For example, instead of 16:00 it shows 15:60.
  • Despite the American character and location names, all the generators around the game have (pseudo-) German license plates.
  • The game over screen has changed many times. In the beta version, the options to quit has the 'EXIT GAME' in which the game will close and return to the desktop (similar to the earlier versions of The Eight Pages). Later as the game version received updates, the first change is it changed to 'QUIT' and has different functions is that it returns to the main menu and in the latest update, the font for 'RETRY?' has a different font and the word 'QUIT' was changed to 'I GIVE UP' but the function of it is the same as 'QUIT' in earlier updates.
    • This is also the same for the main menu screen. The font for all the options has also changed in the latest updates and added or rearranged some of them.
  • Some options in this game are also moving. This is usually happened at the game over screen when the player dies but there is a static displayed on the screen. It is only idle if they are not present or the animation for the static was finished.
  • If the player tries to bug in-game such as, falling into abyss, Slenderman will kill them instantly and display a message 'Not even a bug in this game will save you from me' before displaying the options to try again and revert back to the main menu.
  • You play as a female character named Lauren who is looking for her missing friend, Kate. Chapter 6, however, serves as a prequel to the main story (and an remastered remake of the original game) and has you playing as Kate. You also play as Kate through most of Chapter 4.
  • Maps are more intricately and professionally detailed, and now have randomized coding for player starting points and landmark placement.
  • The Slender Man is not the only enemy trying to hunt you down in the game. There is also a proxy to deal with this time and it seems to show discomfort when in the presence of light, not chasing nor attacking the player if having their flashlight beam focused on it. The debug console that can be opened during gameplay with the ` (backquote key shared with the tilde on U.S. keyboards) key identifies this being as 'The Chaser'. Following after the Steam update, a second proxy was added called 'Charlie'.
  • When you collect more pages, the Slender Man will become more aggressive, as he did in The Eight 1ges, but in The Arrival, he instantly appears in front of you or even tries to trap you.
  • Camera HUD flickering indicates how close the Slender Man is to the player.
