Frostpunk’s Icy Post-Apocalypse Making its Way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Video Games

April 12, 2019 - Warsaw, Poland -
Fans asked and 11 bit studios listened. The independent Polish
developer is very excited to confirm that Frostpunk, the first of its
kind in strategic gaming is officially coming to consoles. A gritty
simulation of society survival in a frozen post-apocalypse, the
Bafta-nominated Frostpunk was a bestseller of 2018 and multiple award
winner in its genre. Frostpunk: Console Edition is a finely tuned
adaptation of the PC hit that will be making its way to Xbox One and
PlayStation 4 later this year.

Offering
players a complex strategic challenge alongside a rich narrative
featuring an alternative take on the 19th-century industrial revolution,
Frostpunk weaves a story of how our planet mysteriously freezes,
putting an end to civilization as we know it and forcing the human race
to adapt to the harsh conditions. As the leader of possibly the last
civilized society on Earth, you’re going to build the city your
survivors live in, discover new technologies, explore frozen wastelands
and most importantly, manage and rule society to prepare it for life in
an unforgiving world. Whether you’re an enlightened ruler or an
iron-fisted tyrant, you’ll discover choices in this world aren’t as easy
as they seem, and that holding power over people has a cost as heavy as
the responsibility you feel in caring for them.

Focusing
on a smooth transition to consoles, great efforts are being taken to
re-design the game and adjust its mechanics for the Xbox One and
PlayStation 4, especially when it comes to controls. 11 bit studios
still have some work to do but are close to the finish line, creating an
intuitive interface allowing gameplay to feel natural even when playing
with a controller. “We don’t want to reveal the exact release date yet, but I can say that the game should be out in the summer,” says lead designer Kuba Stokalski.

Frostpunk:
Console Edition will contain all the previous free updates from the PC
version including The Fall of Winterhome scenario, additional
customization options, difficulty settings, and balance tweaks.
Furthermore, additional content updates are planned for the future.
