Frostpunk 2 Announced with Bone-Chilling Trailer

Here’s a brief description of Frostpunk 2 from a release given to the press.

“In Frostpunk’s successor, players are once again tasked with playing as the leader of a resource-hungry metropolis where the expansion and search for new sources of power is an unavoidable reality. But the apocalyptic world has moved on. After the age of coal, conquering Frostland for the oil extraction industry is expected to be the new salvation of what’s left of humanity. However, change does not come easily, and not everyone in this new multi-layered society will welcome this new direction.”

If you haven’t played the first game yet, you’re in luck because it will be free this week starting today and running until August 16. You’ll need to purchase the game after this time if you wish to continue playing, but it’s a great way to try the game out if the sequel announcement interests you. 

The original Frostpunk is also available on console if that’s more your speed.

Frostpunk does not currently have a release date but is announced for PC on Steam, the Epic Game Store, and GOG.
