FROSTPUNK: ON THE EDGE Expansion Will Be Released on August 20, 11 bit studios Announces
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
11 bit studios has some truly fantastic news for all fans of 2018's real-time strategy game Frostpunk, as it's biggest DLC to date — titled Frostpunk: On The Edge — will officially arrive on PC on the 20th of August.
Formerly known as Frostpunk: Project TVADGYCGJR, the fast-approaching content drop is intended to be the final major expansion for the award-winning RTS — as the Warsaw-based developer is seemingly getting ready to focus solely on its Project 8 and two other yet-to-be-revealed titles that will be released by 2024.
According to 11 bit studios, Frostpunk: On The Edge will serve as the base game's epilogue. "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. The world of Frostpunk is still full of embroiled dualities: trust or skepticism, independence or domination, union or separation."
It's worth remembering that Frostpunk: On The Edge is not the only big-budget project set in the stone-cold Frostpunk universe the Polish company is currently producing, as the critically acclaimed game's long-awaited mobile port — developed by Chinese NetEase Games — will make its debut sometime in 2021.
With Frostpunk: On The Edge launching next month, we will definitely learn a whole lot more about the DLC in the coming weeks. In the meantime, take a look at the expansion's official cinematic trailer down below:
A society survival game where heat means life and every decision comes at a price. As the leader of the last civilized society on Earth, you’re tasked with building a city for your survivors to live in, discover new technologies, explore frozen wastelands and most importantly, manage and rule society to prepare it for life in an unforgiving world. Choices in this world aren’t as easy as they seem and holding power over people has a cost as heavy as the responsibility you feel in caring for them.
Frostpunk is currently available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Steam, GOG, and Origin); also coming to iOS and Android devices in 2021.
