The Arrival is the eighth chapter of Slender: The Arrival.





After watching both VHS tapes, Lauren continues on the path to the Radio Tower. She enters a cave with several enigmatic writings on its walls. Suddenly, Lauren begins to smell smoke and everything turns red. Upon exiting the cave, she finds herself in the middle of a forest fire. Reluctantly, the radio tower is within range. She races to the tower, simultaneously avoiding being burned by the flames and a very aggressive Slender Man.

At long last, Lauren finally reaches the radio tower. Once inside, she searches for a key to unlock the door to the rest of the building. Once found, she uses it to unlock the door. Upon unlocking the door, Lauren's flashlight dies - leaving her in nearly pitch darkness. Guided by the light of several burn barrels, she reaches the room at the end of the hallway. There, she finds the burnt corpse of Carl Ross as well as a camera. She turns on the camera, and listens to CR and Kate's horrific last moments. When the tape ends, the other side of the room turns completely dark. Charlie Matheson Jr. comes running out of the dark and straight towards Lauren, causing her to pass out.

  • After obtaining the key in the radio tower, strange noises will be heard. As the player goes down the hallway, flashing blue images of Charlie will appear. Letting this image display multiple times (usually by staying idle or not act too fast) will make the screen cut into black and display the options to retry and return to main menu.
  • According to Blue Isle Studios' Alex Tintor, the original forest fire scene was supposed to be a snow-capped mountain.
