    I received an automatic email less than 30 minutes ago from Blue Isle Studios. It read:

    “Shh…

    Something new is coming to Slender: The Arrival
    <http://slenderarrival.com&gt;

    Only you are allowed to know about it.

    This Halloween we’ll be on Steam.

    More importantly, there’s new content.

    Here’s a sneak peak, Keep it Quiet. The rest of the world doesn’t
    know.”

    What is this “new content”? How big is it? Is it a new level? Something bigger? I know there has to be something big enough to justify a release on Steam, but I was promised a sneak peek and there isn’t one! I’ll be tossing and turning all night!

    Care to explain?

    -Daniel Rosenberg, Hardcore Slender Fan

    P.S. Will the new update solve the glitches I’ve highlighted in a photo I’ve posted on your Facebook page? Will it do something even bigger. GODDAMMIT I WANNA KNOW! PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!

    Or more importantly, as someone who already purchased the game, if I want it on steam, do I have to pay again, or will we get Steam keys too?

    I also got this email tho after the part where it states “Here’s a sneak peak, Keep it Quiet. The rest of the world doesn’t know.” was there suppose to be a link? Another thing i’d like to know which was mentioned above is that if we already purchased the game would be have to re buy it via steam or would we get some free code for it? What’s the new content exactly?

    Looks like either a brand new “Enemy”, or an HD remake of the one we currently have? ;)

    Thanks Brenden! Looks pretty spooky, tho what about the whole steam thing? If Slender goes to steam would we who’ve already bought it have to buy it again on steam or get some sort of code for it?

    Also, would you exclusively support Steam from there like Surgeon Simulator, or support both constantly?

    Due to the number of parties involved, we can’t give immediate answers on all of your questions.

    Stay tuned though!

    We have a full press release coming and it should address most –if not all of your concerns. :)

    Let me ask this then: On a sale of 1 to 10 (1 being really minor glitch fixes, 10 being a new level with never-before-seen elements, a new monster, and basically a revolution) what do you think this update will be? Be honest!

    Haha, no. I swear I’m not. I’m just a Slender fanboy like the rest of us! Even if I did repor tthis whole thing, I’m 14 and jobless, so nobody would see it. Hell, it took a few months for you to see that picture on Facebook.

    My to-do list:
    - Buy a Genesis virtual reality helmet
    - Get Slender on Steam
    - Figure out what that foreboding image could mean …

    He's watching.

    Whoa. I bet this is going to end up giving a little more to work with in regards to Charles’ relevance.

    I was one of those who bought the Producers edition as soon the pre order was available, and i really hope that i can register the game at steam once its available there.

    Buying things twice kinda sucks :P

    Hang on, it just hit me, could this be an even further distortion of Kate? It would be an appropriate way to extend the game.

    I mean, look:

    After: http://images.wikia.com/theslenderman/images/7/71/Chaser…_(5).JPG

    Am I getting warmer…?

    It could be anything, really. The identity of this creature is probably an even bigger one than the identity of totheark or Hoody!

    And the 18th concurs perfectly with their ETA! Not only could this be a Friday present, but it could mean something completely different. The 18th is thirteen days from Halloween. There are three monsters in Slender: The Arrival. And the unluckiest day according to urban legend is Friday the thirteenth. That’s three references to the number 3 in 30 seconds, in 13 days. And if you take 3, 3, and 3, and double it you get 666, the number of the Beast. Slender: the Arrival has 6 levels. Double 333 is 666, and those are the only references I can conceive. That’s two real references. 6 divided by 2 is 3. I think the evidence is pretty clear as to what we have here.

    Oh shizzle. That’s very unlikely to be a coincidence. Sucks for Kate if she’s around to see this entity ):

    But people in the Slender Universe have a tendency to stay dead. I do believe it could be Beth, also judging by the fact that the face is badly decomposed. I actually think it’s actually a further-proxified version of Kate, going by the similar hairdo, and similar remnants of a face. It actually looks like whoever it is, have of their skin fell off, the nose is gone, and there is no jaw. Which brings up another theory. maybe it could be Lauren. Maybe…it could be YOU.
    If you look at your own shadow, the models are remarkably similar, and her mother’s funeral was October 18. Kate wanted to kill Lauren out of mercy, but then the Slender Man stopped her and threw you off the tower, out of Kate’s reach, or maybe even going into your mind and forcing you to climb, only to jump. You land face-first, destroying everything that you could identify yourself by. Also, the fate of Kate, CR, Beth, and Charles Matherson Sr. (the guy from the suicide note in Level 3) are known. The only ones it could then be are Lauren, Charlie, Kate, MAYBE Beth, MAYBE Charles, someone different, or a projection of the Slender Man himself.

    Draw your own conclusions. Since the story also heavily revolves around Kate, with an ultimate goal of finding her, it would seem the most logical that this new creature is Kate. What do you guys think?

    Unfortunately if you got the plain text version of the email, the image we attached was pruned.

    P.S. Daniel, we get a lot of stuff posted to Facebook. Feel free to post that on our forums and we’ll have a look.

    I think you may be on to something there, especially with tomorrow being October 18th, same day as the service for Kate’s mother. Interesting….
