Frostpunk 2 Brings More Post-Apocalyptic City-Building to PC

Post-apocalyptic city-building game Frostpunk is getting a sequel. Frostpunk 2 is coming to PC and a new teaser trailer indicates that it is as dark and icy as its predecessor.

The first Frostpunk game came out in 2018 and was a critical hit. The survival game takes place after an apocalyptic blizzard buries humanity in snow. Players are tasked with building and managing a city, all while making difficult decisions about how their society will be run. The game mixes elements of both the city-building and survival genres.

Developed by 11 Bit Studios, Frostpunk 2 will continue the story of the original, but with some changes. This time around, the “age of coal” has ended and survivors have started hunting for oil instead. While that will change how its societies operate, the game will still feature a similar, central concept. Players control the leader of a civilization that must survive and expand.

A cinematic teaser trailer for the game gives a brief glimpse of what to expect. The short clip pans through some frozen oil rigs before focusing on a bloodied body tied up in the snow. The word “Liar” is scrawled across his chest in blood. Frostpunk is known for being exceptionally dark, so that tone is intact here.

Frostpunk 2 does not have a release date yet, but fans can currently wish-list it on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store. In the meantime, the first game is getting a free trial this week. Players can try it from now until August 16 on Steam.

Post-apocalyptic city builder game Frostpunk is coming to iOS and Android

Frostpunk developer 11 Bit Studios today announced that the game will soon be coming to iOS and Android. Details on the mobile ports of Frostpunk are still fairly slim, but we know that 11 Bit Studios won’t be handling the development of the iOS and Android versions. Instead, 11 Bit has recruited NetEase, a Chinese developer that has partnered with a number of big developers and publishers in the past.

NetEase and 11 Bit have gotten the ball rolling on Frostpunk Mobile quickly, as the game already has a dedicated, but rather sparse, website up and running already. We don’t have a precise release date for Frostpunk Mobile yet, but the announcement today says that the game will be out both on Android and iOS later this year.

Also unknown is how the mobile version will differ from Frostpunk proper, if it does at all. The game’s title – Frostpunk Mobile – suggests that there might be some differences between the versions, but for now, 11 Bit is saying that the mobile version will be “Authentic to the original Frostpunk signature gameplay mechanics that players are used to.”

We’re also told that the game will “let players dive deeper into the post-apocalypse society survival experience,” but again, it’s hard to know what that means. NetEase and 11 Bit’s announcement says that we’ll have new features to look forward to in the mobile version, including “Roguelike Adventure, Law and Guild, Rare Animal Rescue Station, and Character Development.”

For more, it seems we’ll have to wait. Additional details, including a “detailed release timeline,” will be revealed at NetEase’s annual product launch event on May 20th, so perhaps we’ll get the see the game in action then? We’ll let you know when more is revealed, so stay tuned for that.
