Frostpunk 2 Announced

The sequel to the BAFTA-nominated society survival city-builder, 11 bit studios announced today that Frostpunk 2 is now in development.

In this title, players are given the keys to a resource-hungry metropolis, one where the search and expansion for new sources of power is inevitable. Taking place after the age of coal, conquering Frostland for the oil extraction industry is looking to be its salvation – despite the dissident population.

According to Jakub Stokalski, Frostpunk 2 Co-Director:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“We have more manpower available to focus on all aspects of the game from the scale, the production value, to the quality of UX. Our ambition is to do more than a straight-up sequel. What we aim to deliver to players is an experience that goes vastly beyond that of the original Frostpunk.”[/testimonials]

Jakub added:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“What players should expect is a wide universe of choices, freedom to shape the society and the city however they see fit – and reap the consequences. Frostpunk 2 builds on the conflicts of its predecessor – survival vs human values, life vs the arctic frost. But most importantly, it adds a new layer that is present in many aspects of the game – be it politics, be it society, be it technological progress – the conflict between humans and their nature.”[/testimonials]

For those new to the series, you can try the original Frostpunk on Steam for free from today through August 16.
