'Frostpunk' (ALL) On The Edge Expansion Gets PC Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 29, 2020 @ 5:00 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.

While Frostpunk’s previous expansion, The Last Autumn, served as a prequel, On The Edge picks up when the base game has ended. The storm has exposed an army warehouse from times before the evacuation. A scouting party is sent from New London to set up an outpost and a steady chain of supplies. It’s time to take another step on the laborious path of rebuilding hope and leading humankind to survival. But… the world of Frostpunk is still full of embroiled dualities: trust or skepticism, independence or domination, union or separation. The question is, what path will you take?

Near the outpost, there are no animals to hunt, so you’ll be depending on food sent from New London and their favors are not inexhaustible. They have their demands too. Luckily, the weather is not so severe here, on the edge. For now, the people have managed to survive without a Generator, but for how long? Will you be able to lead them to survival, far from the capital city of New London? Play On The Edge - the final chapter of the thrilling Frostpunk story!

Frostpunk: One The Edge awaits you with:

  • A gripping survival story set after events of the original game
  • Circumstances will force players to explore and adapt to the frozen wilderness
  • A brand-new map with unique structures
  • New methods to divide or unite your people
  • New mechanics to build economic and diplomatic relations
Frostpunk: On The Edge is coming to Steam, GOG.com, and Humble Store on August 20, 2020.

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.
