'Frostpunk' (ALL) On The Edge Expansion Announced for This Summer - Trailer

by Rainier on June 3, 2020 @ 2:12 a.m. PDT

A steampunk-themed strategy game on a frozen world, Frostpunk asks what choices you would be willing to make and how far could you bend morality to stay alive.

Frostpunk is a city-survival game in which heat means life, and every decision comes with a cost. Living among the frozen remnants of Earth, it is up to you to shape society, establishing the laws and customs to ensure survival.

The premise begins by imagining what society is capable of when pushed to the limit. In a completely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. Society in its current form becomes ineffective and it has to change in order to survive. What does this change mean? What is culture when morality stands in the way of existence? In the end, survival may transform us completely. Whether that change makes us better or worse, stronger or weaker, or even more or less humane is debatable.

With the future of humankind in your hands, Frostpunk is both a challenge of tactical planning and a test of your own humanity.

Calling all survivors of the frozen apocalypse! The day you were striving for has finally come. The last piece of New London’s story falls into place as Project TVADGYCGJR — the mysterious third expansion to 11 bit studios’ grim society survival sim — has been revealed as On The Edge.

On The Edge— the third and final expansion from Frostpunk’s Season Pass — is set after the vicious Great Storm as the expedition is sent from New London with a special assignment. On The Edge not only opens a brand new chapter set in the Frostpunk universe but also further enriches the core experience by pitting players against new challenges, and offering new unique mechanics both in the city and on the Frostland map.

A brand new, frozen board is set and the pieces are moving. What destiny lies ahead for your people? What will this mean for you as their leader? Shape the future of humanity in a defining moment in Frostpunk's universe.

"The Edge symbolizes a cross between what has been the past and what’s new to come. Although the society of New London — the city believed to be the last one on Earth — has survived, it doesn’t mean the struggle is over. The people face new challenges that are catalysts to spark up divisions, new problems, and conflicts based on the fact that people might have different points of view, different perspectives. This is the Edge that you will face as the leader of the society that survived the great snowstorm of Frostpunk, " said Maciej Sułecki, lead designer of Frostpunk: On The Edge.

Frostpunk: On The Edge is coming to Steam this summer and will feature:

  • A brand new story scenario, set after the Great Storm
  • An array of challenges to overcome on a new, desolate map
  • Unique mechanics to utilize on the Frostland view

Key Features:

  • MAINTAIN HOPE - Survival is about hope and the will to live. Your ability to spark and maintain these two in your citizens will be a determinant factor for success.
  • MAKE AND ENACT LAW - The only method of continued survival is to ensure survivors abide by the same rules and share similar beliefs. Establishing laws and customs will be a crucial factor shaping your society.
  • WEIGH YOUR CHOICES - Will you allow child-labour? How will you treat the sick and wounded? Choices in Frostpunk are never straightforward, and decisions come at a price.
  • EXPLORE - The world covers not only bits of the past but also the potential means to secure the future of your people.

Frostpunk is currently available as digital download for PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam, GOG.com, and Humble Store) for $29.99.
