Frostpunk elevates the survival game from the individual to the society. The world has been devastated by climate change. The challenging experience begins with the player as “the ruler of the last city on Earth, it is your duty to manage both its citizens and its infrastructure.” PC Gamer voted it the Best Sim of 2018 and it was also nominated for the Golden Joystick Awards in the Best Visual Design and PC Game of the Year categories.
The creator, 11 bit Studios, also developed Children of Morta and other indie games, but now they’re bringing the popular PC survival sim to consoles (specifically PS4 and Xbox One). For newcomers to the harsh wintry world that threatens to wipe out humanity, there are three major tenets that dictate your actions in the game: the city must survive, make the law, and maintain the hope. The decisions you make will likely not serve all three of these rules. You’ll have to balance the choices you make with the consequences that will inevitably follow.
In the cold world where your city dwells, “heat means life and every decision comes with a cost.” The punishing Frostpunk will launch for PS4 and Xbox One on October 11th.
